Corent’s SurPaaS™ puts the "aaS" in "SaaS"
Online PR News – 07-May-2013 – ALISO VIEJO and SAN FRANCISCO Calif. – Corent Technology, the first IBM Technology Provider Partner certified as “Ready for IBM SmartCloud,” today released SurPaaS™, the first ever SaaS-Enablement Software Platform. Known as the “PaaS for SaaS,” SurPaaS was announced in conjunction with the Software and Information Industry Association’s annual “All About the Cloud” conference in San Francisco.
SurPaaS disrupts the existing, inefficient, costly and time consuming methods used to transform software to SaaS (Software as a Service). Corent’s SurPaaS recently was awarded a powerful patent with twenty claims for transforming software to efficient multi-tenant SaaS without the time and expense of having to alter the code of the software application.
"Transforming software applications into SaaS rapidly, efficiently, and cost effectively, SurPaaS saves software vendors years of development time and millions of dollars in R&D costs it takes to achieve scalable, cloud-ready and sustainable SaaS,” said Corent’s CEO Feyzi Fatehi.
"By providing the core capabilities of any SaaS offering, SurPaaS frees up valuable resources that would otherwise be expended to create all the ‘as a Service’ functions required for an application, including all the SaaS operations and management capabilities necessary to operate an elastic, scalable and sustainable SaaS solution," according to Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, Inc. and founder of the Cloud Computing Showplace.
According to Gartner, a leading information technology research firm, SaaS will be the key driver of cloud usage and consumption for the years to come. Gartner predicted that the $14.5 billion SaaS market in 2012 will expand to $22.1 billion by 2015. SurPaaS as a “PaaS for SaaS” is uniquely positioned to further accelerate this major industry trend.
SurPaaS can be deployed on any cloud platform or data center and SaaS-enable any Java, PHP or .Net application. SurPaaS provides complete self-service on-boarding capabilities and management of tenants, subscription management, SaaS lifecycle management, monitoring, metering, billing integration, business reporting, key performance metrics and dashboards necessary to proactively and efficiently manage and grow a SaaS business. SurPaaS can deliver SaaS solutions in single or multi-tenancy models, and can support multiple tenancy models simultaneously to enable a range of subscription offerings. It also allows ISVs to choose the application development platform, application technology stack, and the cloud of their choice.
Earlier versions of SurPaaS, are currently in production use by major companies including Boeing, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, EMAS Pro, an established education software provider, and uPhotoMeasure, a SaaS leader in digital distance measurement, among others.
"We wanted ready access to a global audience at a very economical price point, and delivering our offerings in a SaaS model certainly allows us to fulfill those goals," said Anil Thakkar, Director of Product Management at Thinxtream. “However, we realized that there are a number of issues that companies need to deal with when they decide to become a SaaS provider; such as customer provisioning, subscription management and billing services. We found Corent and their SurPaaS platform to be a great fit for our needs."
Corent anticipates announcing several new customers who have adopted Corent’s SurPaaS soon. These customers include a global leader in mobile printing, an innovator in home healthcare management, an MSP (Managed Service Provider) offering an integrated suite of SaaS offerings, and a major CRM vendor, to name a few.
