REDMOND, Wash., June 4 /-- K2 today launched the Underground, http://www.k2underground.com/, a community-driven Web site designed to empower K2 users and partners.
"K2 built this site and will continue to support it, but the Underground will really evolve at the direction of our community," says Chris Geier, K2 global evangelism program manager. "The users own it. In a lot of ways, we are turning it over to them, and we are sure there's great value in that."
The new K2 software platform, codenamed "BlackPearl," enables developers and business users to use information that already exists within their systems and processes that have already been built to rapidly create flexible applications that span employees, departments, organizations and line-of-business systems.
The Underground gives new and experienced K2 users a place to discuss ideas, ask questions and share solutions. The site will feature blogs, forums, special interest groups, articles, tips and more. The site will also host K2 calendars, events and user group information.
"The Underground was established to give our customer and partner community new ways to connect and share so that those who have made an investment in K2 can take it to the next level," Geier says.
With the Underground launch, K2 also announced its Insiders program. K2 Insiders, about 20 people chosen from around the world based on their advanced K2 platform expertise and historical work in the K2 community, will drive much of the content on the Underground site. Insiders are not K2 employees, but through their community activities, they will help others solve problems, discover new capabilities and get more value from their K2 deployments.
K2 provides the platform for a new generation of users to collaboratively assemble dynamic business applications from reusable items. K2-based solutions are deployed by a growing number of the global Fortune 100, and since the release of its first software in 2000, K2 has helped clients in more than 40 countries increase productivity. K2 is a business unit of SourceCode Technology Holdings, Inc., based in Redmond, Washington, and has offices all over the world.
