In the latest feature
for Gamasutra's sister mobile game news site, GamesOnDeck, Tira Wireless' Tony de la Lama, senior VP of product management and marketing and Simon Keogh, director of product management, discuss the mobile porting technology provider's history and future.
Tony de la Lama explains of Tira Wireless itself:
“Tira Wireless is a provider of technology and services. We bridge the gap between mobile content development and deployment to ensure content providers can bring their titles to market quickly and cost effectively.
Our heritage goes back 4/5 years ago, when we were a publisher of a number of very successful mobile titles - including an NHL mobile game - but we realised there was a tremendous amount of value that we could provide to customers using the information that we had acquired on how to very quickly deploy applications to mobile phones.
We decided to take that information and knowledge, as well as the tooling and infrastructure that we'd developed, and created the Tira Jump platform.”
