Interoperability Between Clouds And Critical Mass Of Customers

On May 31st, we arranged a Working Breakfast within subject line technology, and more specifically, on Cloud Services and SaaS (Software as a Service).

The report has been generated from the conclusions reached in the debate which arose between the leading professionals of the sector, reveals the rapid evolution of what until recently was a trend but now becomes a must-have in most companies and agents in the ICT world.

Technology Status

Many see the ASP model as the precursor of what is now known as Cloud or cloud applications. Two key factors that have contributed to a better and more accepted implantation is the evolution in networking and connectivity, as well as a more effective development of software management layer.

One of the strengths of Cloud Computing solutions is the scalability, and this is an important ally in the NoSQL databases. In most current projects, the case is not a limitation in its databases MySQL by size, but rather by poor design.

Experts say, the technology is more than ripe for the development of cloud and SaaS in India, and that the main barriers are in the legal inequities as when competing with foreign companies who seek and have customers in India.

Software companies that are focusing on creation of online applications and products based on cloud, are adapting new model of development that is more efficient and flexible, as is to have teams that are capable to work with the agility and efficiency that puts a halt to large development companies or consultants.

Software as a Service

The new generation of smartphones have greatly contributed to the development of online applications, focusing on simplicity and usability. Likewise, the emergence of Stores for apps, have helped to  bring the available supply of apps to the SMEs , to achieve some momentum to this emerging sector in India.

Improved interface for the developer, and the creation of environments such as Amazon or Google Apps have made it more accessible entry into the online application market, and barriers have been removed so that even a young developer can successfully launch an app.

One of the unfinished business of SaaS is integration with other management tools the company has. SAP has great advantages when integrated with all the tools, and the move to SaaS often means losing this advantage, resulting in a reluctance by companies that already have a management platform in place.

IT departments of medium and large companies are lagging behind because there are very agile external solutions. Where an internal department can complete a job offer in months, an external one can do so in weeks.

The market is growing both nationally and internationally.

Platforms

It is beginning to extend a very interesting IaaS standardization, but in terms of PaaS, it is still long way to go. In fact, building applications on Azure or Google Apps can be a trap when you want to move to another platform. Open Stack is the basis IaaS to create a more open PaaS.

Microsoft is also deploying its own public cloud and Yahoo is also seeking its place in the cloud. But the factor that will help an explosion of demand will undoubtedly be interoperability between clouds.

The investment needed to upgrade or set up a good cloud infrastructure is high, but in the first quarter of 2011 there has been a major general movement of hosting providers and service companies are already offering this option to their customers, most sometimes demanded by them.

In general, it is anticipated that all operators end up supplying their Cloud platform, but will live on only those who get a significant critical mass of customers due to high maintenance costs.

But the revolution in the Cloud is not a path that can be walked alone, and ESDS Software Solution Pvt. Ltd. India, after cannibalizing some of its new solutions, is arousing with a new technology for better future in Cloud Services.
