CloudOne, the first to offer IBM Rational Jazz products in the Cloud through Software as a Service, and InfoComm Systems (Infocomm), InfoComm provides network strategy, engineering, security, and research services on a consulting basis to a customer base that has included Fortune 100 companies, Fortune 500 companies, municipalities, and service providers alike, today announced that InfoComm will join the CloudOne Consortium, a group of IBM Rational Business Partners at the forefront of bringing Cloud and Software as a Service delivery of IBM Rational products to the marketplace.
"I have known Jim Goldman for nearly 20 years, and I am so very pleased to have InfoComm as part of the CloudOne Consortium," said John P. McDonald, Chief Executive Officer of CloudOne. "Security is one of the most important aspects of Cloud Computing - and a key differentiator for CloudOne. Our relationship with InfoComm quite simply makes us the very best in the industry at secure development platforms."
“Trust is one of the most important aspects of the shift to Cloud and SaaS - you simply have to know that your data and code is safe,” says Jim Goldman, Infocomm’s founder and CEO. “I know that CloudOne, alongside IBM, are leading the way, and I couldn't be happier to have InfoComm help with addressing customer security architecture and process challenges."
CloudOne offers IBM Rational Jazz products in the Cloud through Software as a Service.
Cloud Computing is a model where hardware server capacity is provided to users, computers and devices over the Internet. Much like public utilities provide electricity, phone service or water, Cloud Computing provides servers, applications and databases over the “pipe” of the internet. Cloud shifts the burden of maintenance and operation of computer servers to a utility-like model so organizations can focus on what makes them unique and great.
Software as a Service, sometimes shortened to “SaaS”, is a method of software deployment where a provider offers licenses to an application or tool for use on-demand, either as a timed subscription or “pay-as-you-go”. The tool or application is usually over provided the Internet using Internet standards for security and access.
CloudOne is the only company that offers Rational Jazz tools through Cloud and Software as a Service. Together, customers can scale both hardware and software up and down as they need, and their costs scale with it. It’s the best of both worlds.
Based in suburban Chicago, Illinois, CloudOne makes IBM Rational technology easy-to-deploy and affordable for everyone - particularly for small and medium-sized organizations. Their unique Software-as-a-Service license model, coupled with cloud-based delivery of software from their own data center speeds up the deployment of Rational solutions with no up-front capital investments for hardware or software, allowing customers to “pay by the drink” on a monthly subscription model. This saves money on infrastructure, staffing and configuration costs, while facilitating the move to cutting-edge IBM Rational technology and distributed, Agile development.
