Virtual Global’s New Platform-as-a-Service Gives Developers a Free Path to the Cloud

Morgantown, WV (PRWEB) November 08, 2012

Virtual Global, a cloud computing company that specializes in federal and commercial cloud strategies and software development, has announced the release of SaaS Maker a platform-as-a-service for building, deploying, and selling subscription-based software on the cloud. The application features, among other highlights, a wizard for the convenient building of functionalities and a software development kit that makes it possible to better integrate with legacy software systems.

In developing SaaS Maker, Virtual Global has addressed the large and growing market for custom software on the cloud, and has acknowledged and served the need on the part of developers to find ways to migrate and modernize their legacy software applications without being locked into proprietary infrastructure providers. Furthermore, SaaS Maker functions in providing a new way for developers to build and sell true subscription-based software-as-a-service applications on the cloud.

“We tend to forget the cloud movement is largely about the mass adoption of software-as-a-service over the next few years and, yes, infrastructure services save moneybut the real value is realized when cloud adoption moves ‘up the stack’ into software services,” said Cary Landis, President of Virtual Global. “The framework of our new SaaS Maker product has a proven, decade-long acumen in federal, commercial, and academic installations both nationally and internationally and we’re confident that it’s ready for primetime. Saas Maker uses point-and-click tools, it lets developers quickly add functionalities such as user subscriptions, data-entry forms, role-based access security, workflow management, team collaboration, and business intelligence reports and it allows developers to publish their apps for sale on the cloud.”

The new software development kit in SaaS Maker lets developers create feature-rich programs that integrate with other web services, such as big data and geospatial services. It is portable across data centers, so that developers can implement secure solutions on their own private cloud, and it is equally suited for multiple types of developers including large enterprise companies moving mission-critical systems to the cloud.

According to Landis, software companies can leverage the platform architecture to cut their time-to-market, risks and costs by more than half. SaaS Maker also lowers the cost of getting started, because developers don’t need to invest up-front into expensive development tools and servers. With SaaS Maker, developers can literally sign up for free and immediately start building enterprise systems that scale to millions of users.

E-Trading Software Developers in the US Industry Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2012

New product offerings helped steadily grow the e-Trading Software Developers industry through significant changes in the market structure and financial services sector over the past five years. IBISWorld estimates that industry revenue grew at a 1.4% average annual rate over the five years to 2012. Higher revenue and profit were underpinned by an increased rate of new-product innovation driven by new technology trends. Cloud computing technologies, open and standardized development frameworks and the proliferation of data lead to new software functionalities, lowered software development costs and improved software times to market. These technologies, in turn, helped industry firms grow demand through new product offerings while lowering costs to improve profit margins, says IBISWorld industry analyst Doug Kelly. At the same time, they also increased the level of external industry competition from software developed internally by large financial firms by making it easier for them to develop their own systems more cost-effectively.

The increasing globalization of financial markets and growth in electronic trading increased investor demands for access to trading multiple asset classes globally, lower trading costs and improved analytics and data management functionality. As a result, financial firms investment in new trading software to meet these demands. Additionally, new regulations on the financial sector in 2010 prompted higher spending on industry software by financial firms to improve the transparency, efficiency and profitability of their trading operations. Consequently, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to grow 4.9% in 2012 to about $ 5.2 billion as institutional investors continue to spend on upgraded trading software that they delayed due to the recession. IBISWorld anticipates changing investor demands will continue to drive new industry product offerings and revenue growth over the next five years. Revenue is forecast to improve at a strong rate through 2017. According to Kelly, investors will continue to demand and spend on new trading platforms that combine advanced data management, data-neutral analytics and quicker execution times across numerous asset classes into a single interface. Profitability is also expected to improve as the industry consolidates and reduces labor and development costs to offset higher external competition from customized, internally developed software from the industry’s larger financial service firm clients.

The e-Trading Software Developers industry exhibits a low level of concentration, with the largest industry player accounting for about 11.4% of industry revenue in 2012. The industry is highly fragmented with many players entering and exiting the industry frequently due to moderate yet decreasing barriers to entry. In the five years to 2012, the number of industry enterprises has decreased at an annualized rate of 0.3% to 126. Larger firms are acquiring smaller firms with talented employees and innovative software to increase their own scale and protect their market share. Over the next five years, such consolidation activity will gain momentum as firms become larger and more capable of making costly acquisitions.
