Driving Revenue and Delivering Products Digitally
Marc Andreesen, founder of Netscape and now a star Silicon Valley venture capitalist, recently authored a fascinating Wall Street Journal article entitled “Why Software is Eating the World”. In it, he described how more and more business and industries are being run on software that is being delivered online. He also points out how available technologies now make it possible to quickly and cost-effectively develop and deliver new product capabilities online on a global scale.
Modern Web-facing applications generally fall into three broad categories: browser-based customer and partner portals that strengthen relationships and drive revenue, digital product delivery services that literally deliver paid-for product (such as media) online, and back-end systems that drive the latest generation of dedicated mobile applications customers download from app stores on their mobile devices.
All these applications require significant IT infrastructure and expertise to operate successfully and reliably at scale. However, the organizations that build these applications often lack the necessary operations infrastructure and expertise in house. For such companies, HOSTING makes an excellent partner. We work with your application developers to design and build a cost-effective managed cloud environment that will scale as your business grows. We then incorporate availability, recovery and security services to make sure your applications remain available to your customers.
The end result is our experts manage your entire infrastructure for you so you can focus on managing and enhancing your Web-facing applications.
