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.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof? Let’s talk about the different layers of Technology as a Service: who cares, what runs where, and how does it all fit together.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...
Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S.
