Strong growth in Chinese PaaS Market
Cordys recognized as major PaaS provider for Enterprises, ISVs and System Integrators
Putten, The Netherlands, 22 February 2013 - Last month, Forrester Research, Inc. principal consultant Charlie Dai wrote a report on the Chinese PaaS Market (PaaS Market Dynamics in China, 2012 To 2017, Forrester Research, Inc.,January 14, 2013). He pictures strong growth in this market from 2013 on, to more than $600 million in 2020. To approach and succeed in the Chinese PaaS market, Forrester Research recommends vendors to position themselves well targeted and disciplined.
Cordys is mentioned as one of the two major global PaaS players offering a Foundational PaaS, Application PaaS, Process PaaS and Integration PaaS for the Chinese market. Also, the Cordys value proposition for enterprises, ISVs, service providers and Systems Integrators is commented upon by Forrester Research:
"Cordys is addressing the PaaS market by offering PaaS as a value-add to its existing customer base for business process management systems in the retail, telecom, and public sectors. However, it is also working to appeal to ISV and SI customers with its vision of building an ecosystem of enterprise market places to develop sample applications and integrate them with other systems."
This report follows recent announcements from Cordys, about the launch of their Business Operations Platform, now available as a Platform as a Service. This platform can be consumed "as a Service" from The Cordys Cloud or a number of their service provider partners such as Fujitsu, Getronics and CloudItalia.
