Cast Iron Systems provides the lowest cost and highest returns on investments in Cloud and SaaS models. In today’s competitive global business environment, companies recognize the need to reduce complexity and cost in order to increase their business agility. To do so, many organizations are accessing key business applications using a SaaS model through cloud computing. The challenge that businesses face in reaping the full potential of SaaS integration is making new cloud-based applications work with the disparate systems running in their data centers. In the past, this involved time-consuming and resource draining coding work.
IBM is already known for the industry-leading application integration capabilities it offers for both on-premise and business-to-business applications. With the addition of Cast Iron Systems to its software portfolio, IBM is able to offer clients a complete platform to integrate cloud applications from leading providers including Salesforce.com, Amazon, NetSuite and ADP with on-premise applications, such as SAP and JD Edwards. Using Cast Iron Systems' hundreds of pre-built templates, expensive custom coding can be eliminated, which allows cloud integrations to be completed in the space of days, rather than weeks or longer. These results can be achieved using a physical appliance, a virtual appliance or a cloud service with attractive entry and pay-as-you-go pricing. Together, IBM and Cast Iron Systems are driving business value for the adoption of SaaS and Cloud supporting today’s dynamic business networks.
