Tina, tell us a bit about you and what you do a Cordys?
I am responsible for sales in Central Europe region for the Telecommunication sector and this includes Cloud solutions as well.
What does Cordys offer its clients?
Cordys is expert in orchestration and improvement of business processes. We do it in a classical on-premise environment as well as in the cloud and this unique hybrid offering differentiates us from others. Our Business Operations Platform can be used in the cloud via partners. We also have a specific solution for Service Providers who are searching for tools to operate a marketplace with Cloud Applications called Cordys Cloud Provisioning. This allows third parties to host applications and takes care for the provisioning of users and metering of the usage. Our Cloud orchestration platform known as Cordys Process Factory falls under the PaaS category, which provides a platform using which end users can easily build new enterprise quality business applications. The newly built applications are inherently SaaS enabled. It is a code-free development environment where users can compose new applications without requiring any programming skills.
How does Cordys differentiate itself from other cloud vendors?
There are several advantages of developing applications using Cordys Process Factory (CPF) such as
- Ease of use (no coding), does not require technical expertise
- Faster to develop apps through modeling in CPF
- Powerful graphical Form Builder and Flow Builders as well as Flow capabilities
- More powerful and easy Web Service consumption (both SOAP and REST services)
- Cost – CPF is much more economical compared other solutions (CPF costs $95/user/year and comparable versions cost $900/user/year.)
- Available under white-lable to Service Providers (e.g. Telcos);
- Usable in combination with Google Apps – We add workflow to the Google Apps offering in order to replace old (Lotus Notes) applications.
Which users do most benefit from Cordys’ offering?
Companies who do not want to invest a lot of money for productivity and situational apps. Teams and departments can compose their own process oriented applications within a short span of time.
How will cloud computing change the way we develop and experience web applications?
Business Process Management benefits become even more fascinating when BPM is combined with the benefits of the Cloud. Flexible and scalable IT services without any software deployment and maintenance on a pay-as-you-go basis will lower the cost dramatically. The Cordys Business Operations Platform with its combined BPM and Cloud technology allows organizations of any size to become flexible, to continuously optimize their business processes and to lower the cost of IT. Thus entirely new productivity solutions will evolve which accelerate and simplify the collaboration within organizations and with the external business partners and customers.
Tina, thanks a lot for the interview!
