Cloudpaging Application Provisioning Allows Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to Step Up the Competition for Cloud and Subscription-based Software
March 6, 2018 – Irvine, CA – Numecent, Inc. is leveling the playing field for independent software vendors (ISVs) interested in entering subscription-based software markets such as the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, an industry-leading automated e-commerce platform that offers more than 200 vetted cloud services to more than 45,000 resellers globally. ISVs who have historically only offered boxed or legacy file downloads but are wanting to transition to a cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) offering of their software products are now able to do so easily thanks to Cloudpaging™, a patented technology from Numecent, Inc.
There is a growing demand from enterprises seeking scalable, subscription-based solutions. As quantity and usage requirements of applications fluctuate with market changes and as competitive SaaS offerings grow further against traditional ISV businesses, enterprises are keeping a close eye on unnecessary spending and are looking for alternative solutions. Cloudpaging answers these challenges with the ability to deliver existing applications to subscribers while providing all the benefits of a SaaS offering and beyond.
In January of 2018, Nuance, Ingram Micro’s 2018 Emerging Vendor of the Year, was able to launch its Power PDF on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace as a cloud-based SaaS offering thanks to Cloudpaging’s application provisioning capabilities. Now, Nuance’s Power PDF is available for Ingram Micro Cloud’s platform customers and service provider partners to purchase or resell via a subscription model.
“Numecent’s cloudification technology has allowed us to empower our partners with the opportunity to enter the digital economy by transforming their software products to a subscription-based cloud service,” said Tarik Faouzi, vice president, Global Cloud Product Management, Ingram Micro. “This has enabled us to offer different consumption models to our customers for the same product, providing unique opportunities and customized solutions.”
“Cloudpaging technology has proven to be a critical component in a variety of use cases,” said Arthur Hitomi, co-founder and CEO of Numecent. “This example with Ingram Micro Cloud and Nuance is a breakthrough because of the benefits provided to every player in the ecosystem.”
In the subscription-based marketplace model:
- ISVs without cloud delivery or subscription models can enter with Cloudpaging and provide all of the benefits of a SaaS solution including growth while reducing risks and engineering costs associated with re-implementing or modernizing,
- Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can create and offer a better, more efficient and attractive business model of supporting and managing their customers with simplified pricing and scalability,
- Enterprises can experience substantial cost savings as software application needs change over time like today’s SaaS platforms while losing none of the benefits, flexibility, and knowledge of how they use software today.
