Voxeo’s Tropo – Following the footsteps of VoicePHP
This was expected – take a step back and think about it& a few points are obvious:
Although, companies like Voxeo resisted VoicePHP approach earlier (see Jonathan’s comment on GigaOM’s coverage about VoicePHP being non-standard, REST etc), at the same time they found worthy competitor in VoicePHP and they realized that they need to leave the dying ship and move onto something that is truly a technology that developers will use. VoiceXML companies have no option but to create platforms similar to VoicePHP to stay in the game.
What does this mean when such a big VoiceXML companies are following the approach proposed by VoicePHP ? – Simply that VoiceXML is indeed dying if not dead already! Voxeo just endorsed this fact by launching Tropo.
It certainly is a welcome addition for developers.
