LongJump squarely addresses a sizable void for powerful, user-configurable, web-based business applications, without compromising the security and control businesses require.
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) December 1, 2009
LongJump, an early cloud-computing vendor with a Platform-as-Service (PaaS) offering, announced that Gartner positioned it in the leading analyst firm's recently released Magic Quadrant report for Enterprise Applications Servers*. LongJump was one of two companies with a PaaS offering to be included in the Magic Quadrant.
"We believe LongJump's placement in Gartner's Magic Quadrant demonstrates that PaaS is emerging as a true alternative for enterprises in the application server market. Application platforms in the cloud are ideal for building and delivering innovative enterprise-class solutions that meet dynamic business requirements in record time," said Pankaj Malviya, CEO and Founder of LongJump. "LongJump squarely addresses a sizable void for powerful, user-configurable, web-based business applications, without compromising the security and control businesses require."
LongJump's Cloud Application Platform appeals to two market segments seeking more control and faster time to market benefits.
- Enterprises that are backlogged with custom application development because they are looking to ensure robust capabilities without compromising on standard development tools and processes, scalability, and security.
- Managed Service Providers (MSP), ISVs and VARs who want to take full advantage of opportunities in the SaaS market, but realize that developing a comprehensive, multi-tenant platform can be cost prohibitive and therefore limits how quickly they can get to market and generate revenues.
With LongJump's reusable, business building blocks developers and corporate IT teams gain significant time-to-market value, since they can bypass the need to recreate common business processes and functions or having to design application architectures from scratch. Also, LongJump's ability to run as a hosted service, its white labeling capabilities, and its option to be installed on-premise in a private cloud provide ultimate flexibility for organizations to build their applications where they see fit.
Earlier this year, Gartner named LongJump as a "Cool Vendor" in its Cloud Computing System and Application Infrastructure cloud computing report.
