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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
