“SaaS and cloud-based ISVs bet their business on a highly available, scalable platform,” said Jeff Kaplan, managing director, THINKstrategies. “If their platform goes down, their customers lose service – and they lose business. The Oracle SaaS Platform provides one of the most robust, reliable and secure platforms for managing SaaS applications.”
“SaaS offers a new channel for ISVs to reach untapped opportunities and new areas of growth in existing markets,” said John Gawkowski, vice president, Oracle Platform Technology Solutions. “The Oracle SaaS Platform allows our valued partners to capitalize on these new business opportunities by providing the secure, integrated foundation to seamlessly build, deliver, and maintain robust, low cost SaaS applications.”
