SaaSGrid Express, announced today, provides free access to a foundation with which to deliver .NET applications as mature SaaS offerings with a competitive cost-of-delivery profile.

According to Apprenda CEO Sinclair Schuller some 93 percent of ISV-delivered applications have yet to make the transition to on-demand and SaaS-delivered. That’s a lot of apps.

In addition to the complex architectural foundation afforded by SaaSGrid Express — such as low effort multi-tenancy and resilient grid-scalability — the product also provides some of the other “out of the box” application services found in the full-fledged commercial SaaSGrid offering, including:

  • Metering
  • Monetization
  • Subscription Management
  • Application lifecycle management
  • Cloud control
  • Billing
  • Customer provisioning

In April, Gartner analyst Yefim Natis profiled Apprenda as one of the “Cool Vendors” in the application platform as a service (APaaS) space. He said:

Apprenda’s support of ISV (or private cloud application project) requirements for developing and running SaaS-style offerings far exceed the functionality available with the recently delivered Windows Azure SDK. Apprenda’s advanced support for fine-grained and adjustable use tracking and billing is particularly valuable for ISVs.

Apprenda achieves this breadth of capabilities largely unintrusively, in part by intercepting and extending the Web and the database communications of the application and in part by modifying the compiled application intermediate language code (adding value and some overhead in the process).

However, Natis does offer one caution:

Apprenda’s current business is primarily focused on ISVs. Historically, the business opportunities of middleware providers servicing the ISV market have been limited. With time, the company must develop a product offering that targets enterprise IT cloud application projects as well in order to expand its business opportunities.
