Virtual Global, Inc. announces the release of SaaS Maker™, an open and portable platform-as-a-service that lets developers build multi-user apps for free and sell them on the cloud.

Virtual Global, a cloud computing company that specializes in federal and commercial cloud strategies and software development, has announced the release of SaaS Maker™ – a platform-as-a-service for building, deploying, and selling subscription-based software on the cloud. The application features, among other highlights, a wizard for the convenient building of functionalities and a software development kit that makes it possible to better integrate with legacy software systems.

In developing SaaS Maker™, Virtual Global has addressed the large and growing market for custom software on the cloud, and has acknowledged and served the need – on the part of developers – to find ways to migrate and modernize their legacy software applications without being locked into proprietary infrastructure providers. Furthermore, SaaS Maker™ functions in providing a new way for developers to build and sell true subscription-based software-as-a-service applications on the cloud.

"We tend to forget the cloud movement is largely about the mass adoption of software-as-a-service over the next few years – and, yes, infrastructure services save money…but the real value is realized when cloud adoption moves 'up the stack' into software services," said Cary Landis, President of Virtual Global. "The framework of our new SaaS Maker product has a proven, decade-long acumen in federal, commercial, and academic installations – both nationally and internationally – and we're confident that it's ready for primetime. Saas Maker uses point-and-click tools, it lets developers quickly add functionalities – such as user subscriptions, data-entry forms, role-based access security, workflow management, team collaboration, and business intelligence reports – and it allows developers to publish their apps for sale on the cloud."

The new software development kit in SaaS Maker™ lets developers create feature-rich programs that integrate with other web services, such as big data and geospatial services. It is portable across data centers, so that developers can implement secure solutions on their own private cloud, and it is equally suited for multiple types of developers – including large enterprise companies moving mission-critical systems to the cloud.

According to Landis, software companies can leverage the platform architecture to cut their time-to-market, risks and costs by more than half. SaaS Maker also lowers the cost of getting started, because developers don't need to invest up-front into expensive development tools and servers. With SaaS Maker, developers can literally sign up for free and immediately start building enterprise systems that scale to millions of users.
