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.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
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...

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 lead...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
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 ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
