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.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
