LONDON, UK, 15/01/2001 - e2-one, the Internet infrastructure developer, has appointed Geraldine McAloon as its Alliances Manager with responsibility for developing relationships between the company and key partners. e2-one launched in September 2000 with an impressive list of strategic alliances including PriceWaterhouseCoopers in the UK, Sun Microsystems, Oracle, and Deloitte Consulting.

Geraldine has divided the alliance partners into three strategic groups: technology alliances, implementation alliances and vertical market alliances. Each will be bringing technological expertise or specific market knowledge to the relationship. Commenting on her appointment, Geraldine said: "My objectives for the next six months are to further develop the relationships already in place and to get the e2-one message across to a wider audience. Such high profile alliances are an important endorsement of the e2-one technology."

e2-one’s core technology, æos, is a robust, scaleable architecture for high volume, transaction-processing web sites. It uses a unique business modelling approach to deliver customised solutions, enabling rapid creation of flexible, workflow-driven software for e-commerce. Benchmark testing undertaken by Sun Microsystems and Oracle proved æos capable of handling over 80,000 on-line transactions per minute or more than 11 million customer enquiries per hour - far out performing any rivals.

Geraldine joins e2-one from Compaq, where she was responsible for building technical relationships with key alliance partners. Prior to joining Compaq, Geraldine worked in pre-sales for Sequent and IBM.
