Philip Stander and Marne Meades establish Globetom.
Globetom enters the enterprise middleware space with the development of its first commercial product GEF. GEF was developed as a next-generation Application Server and Integration Platform in the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) paradigm. The product was developed as an XTP platform that has the ability to support tens of thousands of transactions per second.
Vodacom SA appoints Globetom in the Network Management Space.
GEF is adopted by our first middleware customer – a Tier 1 GSM operator in the OSS space.
GolftimeSA, a middleware centric golf booking technology is developed and signifies Globetom’s move into new markets. At the time South Africa’s Telcommunication infrastructure wasn’t delivering sufficiently stable data networks for existing international booking technologies to accurately and in real-time, fulfil golf bookings. Globetom developed a reliable booking technology where golfers could book a round of golf at clubs across the county at any time and know that the booking would be fulfilled irrespective of whether the data networks were down at time of booking. Today, over 90% of all online golf bookings in South Africa are done on the GolftimeSA product.
iWin, a mobile messaging solution is developed and becomes a subsidiary of Globetom. The product offers generic WASP functionality including SMS, MMS and a competition manager.
As convergence matured Globetom saw a need in the market for IP based billing platforms that offered billing agility. Globetom was awarded an IDC SPII grant and developed GP3. GP3 is our dynamic charging and fulfilment platform.
Movius, a global leader in value-added communication solutions for service providers becomes the first customer for GP3. Globetom partnered with Movius for the delivery of an innovative next-generation messaging application with integrated, off-the-shelf billing.
Globetom receives a Technology Top 100 award for GEF.
