Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 15, 2010
CloudOne, the first to offer IBM Rational Jazz products in the Cloud through Software as a Service, and Real-Time Technology Solutions, Inc. (RTTS), an IBM Rational Business Partner focused specializing in providing software quality for critical business applications, today announced that RTTS 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.
"RTTS is one of the best in the business when it comes to testing. I am very excited to have them as part of our consortium, particularly as on-demand testing has become such a hot area of development."
“Testing is a crucial component of the development lifecycle,” said Bill Hayduk, President and Founder of RTTS. “Being able to deliver our services in conjunction with CloudOne’s innovative SaaS/Cloud model will provide countless possibilities for our clients. We’re looking forward to a long and healthy partnership with CloudOne.”
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.
RTTS is the premier professional services organization that specializes in providing software quality for critical business applications. With offices in New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Phoenix, RTTS has been serving Fortune 500 and mid-sized companies throughout North America since 1996.
