Alpharetta, GA, June 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Mantrasys, Alpharetta GA based company today announced set of technology solutions designed specifically for speedier deployment of SaaS applications.
“This set of solutions is particularly developed for small and mid size product companies wanting to move their current products to SaaS / cloud computing platform, and do not have all the resources that typically larger companies do. Mantra’s new solutions include specific online tools, code building blocks, checklists, global delivery model, testing solutions and processes geared for faster SaaS deployment,” says Christine Summers, Mantra’s VP - Projects.
“What worked so well and ensured predictable success for offshore companies for last decade is not working as effectively for US ISV companies follow SaaS approach and re-emerge from economic meltdown,” Says Summers “Yes, these companies want to reduce development cost (and off-shoring is one way), but more importantly they are looking for a value that comes from closer collaboration. That’s Mantra!”
Some of the key features of Mantra’s solution:
Agile Development Model - Because SaaS companies tend to follow Agile Model, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing teams. Agile model is more suitable for SaaS where development cycles are much shorter.
Methodology - In SaaS applications (1) project cycles are short (monthly or quarterly) and (2) goal is excellence (continuous improvement) more than perfection. Process maturity and detail documentation are great but using them in a same way as older model, generally proves to be hindrance in the name process (SCM audits) adherence.
Resource Model - For a software company that wants to start SaaS project with a version one implementation within 4 months there is not really much time for traditional project execution model or Knowledge Transfer (and taking that knowledge back to India or offshore team), documentation or process compliance. You have to hit the ground running. So, best approach for that company would be to find on-shore alternatives or enablers - key strength of Mantra’s solutions offerings.
Pricing - Most the SaaS products, and a typical small business uses 5-6 of those from email to project management to accounting reports, one common feature is pricing plans are visible on their website. As much up front they are on their pricing, they are upfront and non-conventional about vendor pricing. Mantra’s solutions come with variety of pricing models.
In a flat world, where low cost advantage is diminishing, old processes are not as effective, product life cycles are shorter and innovation carries real meaning; Mantra’s solutions offer terrific value and faster SaaS implementation approach. Call Mantra today:
