Thinxtream™ Technologies Partners with Corent Technology to Enable Channel-ready SaaS Offering

Thinxtream™ Selects Corent's SaaS-Cockpit™ to Operate & Manage a new Channel-ready SaaS Business

PORTLAND, Ore. and ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Thinxtream Technologies Pte. Ltd., a global software company with innovative products and professional services for media, print and device management applications, has partnered with Corent Technology, Inc. , a leader in innovative SaaS enablement software solutions, to support a new product offering via an efficient, off-the-shelf SaaS delivery model.

"We wanted ready access to a global audience at a very economical price point, and delivering our offerings in a SaaS model certainly allows us to fulfil those goals," said Anil Thakkar, Director of Product Management at Thinxtream. "However, we realized that there are a number of issues that companies need to deal with when they decide to become a SaaS provider; such as customer provisioning, subscription management and billing services. We found Corent and their SaaS-Cockpit product to be a good fit for our needs."

SaaS-Cockpit™ is a complete operations and management solution built for SaaS providers. "With SaaS-Cockpit in place, a software company can quickly and easily move to a SaaS business model, and be assured they will have all of the capabilities they need to run their SaaS business, efficiently and cost effectively," said Corent EVP of Engineering Shafi Syed.

The product has been designed to reduce SaaS operations and management complexity for software companies who want to transition to a SaaS delivery model, but do not want to become bogged down in the details of how to get there. SaaS-Cockpit includes all of the core functionality needed to run a SaaS business: tenant self-provisioning, configurable subscription management, built-in connectors to popular billing services, revenue performance tracking, application performance monitoring, and more.

A powerful capability of SaaS-Cockpit is effortless enabling of multi-tier channel and distribution ecosystems. SaaS vendors can offer their VARs and channel partners a "white label" version of their service and have its partners sell it under their own brand, with their own particular solution configurations, such as aligned with the industries and markets they serve, without the burden of re-hosting and managing separate instances of the application.

"Corent is delighted to welcome Thinxtream as a valued customer and business partner, and pleased that SaaS-Cockpit was the product of choice to help them quickly launch their SaaS business," added Syed.

"This partnership is an example of the exciting new ways software vendors can transform their applications into SaaS solutions and create new channel relationships to quickly respond to their customers' rapidly changing requirements," according to Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, Inc. and founder of the Cloud Computing Showplace.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
