CSC Launches Services Suite for Software-as-a-Service Providers
New Solution Accelerates Entry and Success in SaaS Market
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., March 12 /-- Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE:CSC) today introduced SaaS Acceleration, a comprehensive suite of services designed to help software vendors manage all stages of their software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering -- from inception to launch and beyond.
With increased access to reliable bandwidth and improvements in remote access, virtualization and Web-based applications, independent software vendors (ISVs) and service providers now can cost effectively host their software and offer it on a subscription basis via the Internet. SaaS Acceleration gives ISVs and service providers the tools they need to effectively navigate through planning, development, hosting and providing software over the Internet, and to successfully compete in the market.
"Delivering software in a services model is fundamentally different than traditional forms of software delivery," said Ken Brindamour, vice president for CSC's SaaS business. "For ISVs, SaaS is as much about cost control, operational execution, delivery and exceeding your customers' expectations as it is about the nature of the SaaS offering itself, and that's where CSC excels. CSC has provided many of these services for years, and our clients know we can be relied upon to deliver real results -- whether they are entering new markets or looking for innovative ways to stay on top."
CSC's SaaS Acceleration services include three major service components. The first, which provides business and technical readiness consulting, helps ISVs that are preparing to enter the market with business planning, market analysis, application evaluation and organizational effectiveness. The second, which includes dedicated and accelerated hosting services, offers a scalable solution that enables ISVs to take their SaaS offering to market and provide reliable service over the Internet. The third component provides consulting services to help ISVs incorporate their new SaaS offering into their traditional sales strategy. For more information, visit csc.com/saas.
