CLOUD COMPUTING

Organizations in need of enterprise software to meet their goals often find themselves in need of servers, support software, backup utilities, and other expensive components to support it.  Cloud computing, a rapidly evolving technology concept, provides computing infrastructure as a utility. Just as your home is powered by an electrical grid that you pay for only as you “flip the switch”, cloud computing offers computing resources – from databases to web servers – that you pay for only as they are utilized.

What could this mean for you? It could mean the end of:

  • Hiring staff or consultants to manage your IT infrastructure
  • Haggling to purchase servers to run your software
  • Fretting about your backup and restore policy
  • Wondering when and how your software and hardware will provide a return on investment
  • Jitters about overheating servers and power outages

Counterpointe is prepared and has experience in offering cloud solutions and consultations across all three major cloud platforms – Amazon EC2, Windows Azure, and Google App Engine – to help introduce your organization to the benefit of next-generation computing.

 

SOFTWARE AS A SERVICE (SaaS)

Hand-in-hand with the concept of Cloud Computing, Software as a Service (SaaS) applications such as Salesforce.com and Google Apps are demonstrating the cost-effectiveness of hosting complex applications in the cloud.

SaaS is a software distribution model in which applications are hosted and maintained by service provider and made available to end users on-demand for a periodic fee. There are two large benefits to SaaS:

  • Eliminates up-front and downstream costs for maintaining IT infrastructure
  • Installations, upgrades, backups, patches, and other critical maintenance tasks are offloaded to the service provider and included in the subscription fee

Of course, SaaS is not for everyone – particularly those organizations storing extremely sensitive data or in need of extensive customizations. Counterpointe has hands-on experience integrating SaaS into IT strategy with experience in such applications as:

  • Sharepoint Online
  • Exchange Online
  • Salesforce.com
  • Convio
  • CitySoft
  • Jitterbit Cloud

We compliment this skill set with expertise in software development, cloud computing services, systems integration, and service oriented architecture.
