Longjump puts SaaS inside IT shops

PaaS provider CEO says customers not yet ready to go all-in with cloud computing can now control cloud functions themselves

Platform-as-a-service provider Longjump announced this week that its on-demand Business Applications Platform can now be licensed and used within a customer's four walls.

"Now we are shifting gears. We've found that some large companies are not ready to push all their information into the cloud," said Pankaj Malviya, founder and CEO of Longjump. "We are trying to solve this problem."

So customers and ISVs can now opt to license the software and install it in-house to create so-called private clouds. Malviya explained that the Business Applications Platform lets IT and business collaborate to create applications that business users, in turn, can easily customize. Longjump also provides a unified interface to integrate business data and create transactional applications, according to the company.

By installing the software in-house, IT shops can take control of otherwise hosted functions, such as multi-tenancy, application delivery, and portability, Malviya added. Likewise, ISVs and SaaS providers can use Longjump's Business Applications Platform to add more features and capabilities to existing services, he said.

This has been a busy week for cloud computing. Hewlett-Packard on Tuesday unwrapped Cloud Assure products and services to improve the availability, performance, and security of cloud-based resources. And on Monday, a number of vendors, including Longjump, published the Open Cloud Manifesto.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
