Saratoga, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
Rollbase, Inc., an innovator in platform as a service (PaaS) technology allowing the rapid design, development and deployment of cloud business applications, today announced it has been named a Gartner Research "Cool Vendor in PaaS" for 2013. In its "Cool Vendors in PaaS, 2013" report released on April 15th, the global research firm profiles Rollbase along with 3 other vendors.
"We are honored to be recognized by Gartner as a cool vendor in PaaS," said Matt Robinson, co-founder and CEO of Rollbase. "We believe this acknowledgement validates our unique approach to PaaS and the report highlights a few of Rollbase's key capabilities behind this approach. We continue to invest in making it easy for companies to build and run multitenant business applications on any cloud or in-house infrastructure, and it's great to have Gartner recognize us as an innovator in this area."
In the report, Gartner highlights the fact that, "insightful application PaaS vendors are targeting their tools to the needs of SaaS ISVs, because SaaS sells PaaS, and SaaS ISVs are a critical channel for PaaS vendors." Rollbase's focus on SaaS ISVs directly targets this channel opportunity through a combination of high productivity, hybrid portability and solid tenant isolation.
Rollbase stands out by delivering rapid innovation in the platform as a service market, focused on providing a declarative web-based application development environment accessible to business users that minimizes the amount of code necessary to build cloud business applications. In addition to operating Rollbase as a pure cloud service (Rollbase Hosted Cloud), Rollbase provides an easily installable, brandable, licensed option (Rollbase Private Cloud) that has helped it capture demand from SaaS vendors, enterprises, governments, and other types of organizations that want to maintain full control over their application software stack, data, and infrastructure whether it resides in-house, in a third party data center, or in a cloud of their choosing such as Amazon, Rackspace, or Microsoft Azure.
