OutSystems Wins Business Intelligence Groups Stratus Award for Platform as a Service (PaaS) of the Year

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014

OutSystems, the open high-productivity application platform provider, has been selected by the Business Intelligence Group as Platform as a Service (PaaS) of the Year for 2014. The Stratus Award recognizes those companies innovating in cloud computing and providing innovative offerings that are truly differentiated in the market.

A significant factor in OutSystems success in 2014 is the successful launch of the companys free cloud offering, which enables developers to easily create and deploy custom mobile and web apps for free in the cloud. OutSystems Platform free cloud offering is powered by the same robust application platform used by large enterprises such as Randstad, Liberty Insurance and Charles River Labs.

In the first six months since its launch, over 8200 users in 154 countries have activated a free OutSystems Platform personal account. These users have published over 8600 unique applications and more than 591,000 app versions, resulting in over 12.5 million page views across these applications.

OutSystems has seen significant momentum over the past year, as enterprises recognize that existing development approaches arent allowing them to keep up with user demands for mobile and customer-facing applications, said David Holmes, vice president of marketing of OutSystems. Nearly 400 enterprises have adopted OutSystems Platform to help them rapidly deliver applications that address the urgent business need to innovate and extend functionality and data to an increasingly mobile audience including employees, customers and partners. Being able to build and deliver these applications in the cloud reduces infrastructure needs and costs which speeds delivery of these business-critical apps. We are pleased to accept the Business Intelligence Groups award as the latest recognition of the superiority of our platform in bringing new apps to market in record time, delivering a compelling experience for developers and users alike.

With more than 60% of businesses now utilizing the cloud for performing IT-related operations, the organizations selected are helping to accelerate the development and adoption of cloud-based services, said Dawn Fordyce, managing director of the Business Intelligence Group. We are proud to reward OutSystems in the 2014 Stratus Awards. They are clearly leading the market in delivering real value to their end customers by leveraging the cloud.

Cloud Service Provider MTS Healthcare Achieves SSAE16 Certification

Pasadena, Calif. (PRWEB) July 14, 2014

MTS Healthcare, a leading healthcare cloud computing company, announces that it has achieved Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 16 standards compliance. The certification was awarded after a thorough assessment by auditors from KirkpatrickPrice, and demonstrates MTS Healthcares commitment to high-level security controls and operational excellence.

MTS Healthcare is one of the only organizations in the healthcare industry to have the entire organization certified, rather than just their data centers. This means their training, interface development, technical support and entire cloud service is certified to have the highest security protocols and operational management at all levels of the company.

With the achievement of the SSAE16 certification, MTS Healthcare can guarantee the best practices and controls are in place to protect our customers data, said MTS Healthcare CEO James Deck. For our customers, it means knowing we maintain the highest levels of security and controls, giving them invaluable peace of mind.

Audits were conducted in accordance to standards set by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants to test the operating effectiveness of controls considered necessary to provide assurance of data security. The review included interviews with relevant personnel to corroborate control placement and activity, an assessment of relevant MTS documentation and direct observation of control placement and activity.

Several layers of controls are in place to ensure maximum security and operational effectiveness at MTS Healthcare. All management duties are segregated and maintain guides consistent with security practices. Controls are in place to reduce the risk of theft, fraud and misuse of facilities. They also implement controls to protect assets from environmental risks and limit physical access to the computer equipment, system infrastructure and storage media to authorized personnel. In addition, all MTS employees are trained in security awareness including HIPPA compliance basics and HIPPA as it relates to MTS company policies and procedures.

SSAE16 certification will help MTS build trust with its customers, and ensure that their information is protected. This report ensures that all user organizations have access to the same information for their own auditing purposes, reducing their costs.


Founded in 2006, MTS Healthcare, a leading healthcare cloud computing company that works exclusively with healthcare organizations across the United States to reduce the cost and complexity of IT. For more information about MTS Healthcare, please visit http://www.mtshealthcare.com.

Abaqus Announces Expansion of myGeoTracking Location and Messaging Service into Canadian Workforce Management Market

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

Abaqus, Inc., a provider of the first-of-a-kind myGeoTracking cloud-hosted location and messaging platform, has expanded coverage of the myGeoTracking mobile workforce management service into the Canadian market with the addition of Telus and Bell Mobility to its network of wireless carrier partners. With this launch, Abaqus adds support for 15M new subscribers in Canada on top of its support for 325M+ subscribers in the US market (comprising nearly 95% mobile devices across all major carriers in the US). Additional carrier certification in Canada is pending.

Similar to customers in the US, were looking forward to providing the benefits of SMB and Enterprise solutions such as field force management, mobile time clocking, vehicle and asset tracking, and location-enhanced messaging services, to Canadian customers, said Shailendra Jain, CEO of Abaqus. This expansion of service coverage will also benefit our transportation customers with trans-border operations and responsibilities. We plan to similarly expand our offering into other International markets in the coming year.

Hassle-free Mobile Team and Asset Management

Unlike smartphone-based applications that require special phones and client apps, the carrier-grade cloud-based myGeoTracking location management service works with any cell phone or wireless device and provides you with a real-time workforce and asset management solution by blending location information, Enterprise Messaging/Interactive Voice Response (IVR), and a powerful rules engine into a single platform.

The platform can find the location of any phone or wireless device by probing the cellular network for a general position using either Cell ID (located within the service area of a cell tower), or a precise location using GPS inside the device.
