OpSource to Accelerate SaaS Delivery Model

Many software and web companies that wish to enter the growing SaaS market lack the resources and/or knowledge

OpSource, the SaaS delivery experts and Scio Consulting, a provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS)-related software development and consulting services, announced that the two firms have formed a partnership designed to accelerate the adoption of the on-demand delivery model by software companies. Many software and web companies that wish to enter the growing SaaS market lack the resources and/or knowledge necessary to develop, let alone deliver on-demand products and services. Under the terms of this non-exclusive agreement, Scio will provide the software development and consulting necessary to create on-demand products for companies and OpSource will deliver and manage those applications.

Luis Aburto, CEO, Scio Consulting, said, "This partnership will make it even easier for companies to enter the on-demand market. Not only will they receive needed consulting and software development services, they'll experience a seamless transition from application development to delivery. Our software engineers will develop customer applications for the same OpSource platform that will deliver the production versions. The services of Scio and OpSource complement each other perfectly."

Treb Ryan, CEO, OpSource, added, "As the leader in web application delivery, our goal is to create an ecosystem that offers one-stop development and delivery shopping for companies that want to join the SaaS revolution. Companies often need assistance creating new SaaS applications or modifying the code of an existing on-premise application to create a SaaS application. Our relationship with Scio enables us to help customers more easily obtain such services, thus accelerating the growth of the SaaS market and furthering the adoption of OpSource On-Demand as the leading platform for web application delivery."

Scio provides targeted software development services for start-up companies who wish to offer a SaaS product, existing software companies who wish to move from the on-premise model to SaaS and established SaaS companies who wish to optimize their on-demand products. Scio's services include application development as well as a myriad of related planning and consulting services.

A comprehensive, award-winning Web application delivery platform, OpSource On-Demand enables companies to quickly and securely offer applications on-demand. OpSource On- Demand offers a complete operational hardware, software and networking infrastructure, including application management and 24x7 customer-branded end-user support. In addition, OpSource On-Demand includes tools that accelerate revenue generation, such as billing and analytics. These services are provided by OpSource via a unique, Success-Based Delivery Model that includes unit-based pricing, thereby ensuring that businesses begin with a modest minimum commitment, and that ongoing increases in revenue will always precede future increases in service delivery cost.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
