Compiere Releases Enterprise-Class ERP Solution on Amazon's Cloud
Companies of all sizes can now deploy comprehensive ERP technology and benefit from the convenience, flexibility and cost savings of utility computing
The combination of Compiere Cloud Edition and Amazon EC2 provides a convenient virtual computing environment that reduces the cost of ERP deployment by eliminating up-front capital costs for hardware and software, while also reducing ongoing IT infrastructure support costs. Based on internal estimates, Compiere Cloud Edition can save companies up to 80 percent in the total cost of ownership of ERP software.
"We are pleased that Compiere is leveraging Amazon EC2 to offer their customers more options in deploying cost-effective, flexible and dependable ERP solutions," said Steve Rabuchin, director of developer relations and business development for Amazon Web Services.
According to Geoffrey Mobisson, managing director of Levementum, a Compiere system integration partner, "The Cloud Edition provides broad-scale access to comprehensive ERP technology that previously was available only to large companies with extensive budgets. With our experience successfully implementing customers on Amazon EC2, we are convinced this offering meets the market demand for more cost-effective business solutions, and significantly raises the bar for other ERP vendors."
With Compiere Cloud Edition, customers can leverage the advantages of cloud computing technology to instantly scale the application up or down, depending on their particular needs. Cloud computing allows IT departments to increase capacity or add capabilities "on the fly" without investing in new hardware, personnel or software by accessing virtual servers available over the Internet to handle computing needs. Compiere is deployed in a secure, private environment, giving customers total control of their application and computing resources.
Don Klaiss, president and CEO, Compiere said, "We are excited to be first to offer ERP users the convenience of utility computing, the lower operating costs of cloud computing, and far more flexibility than other available SaaS alternatives. Cloud Edition users, operating in their own secure environment, can quickly and easily customize their Compiere system without programming. Compiere Cloud Edition is the logical next step in our commitment to making ERP easier and more affordable to own, implement and use."
Compiere Cloud Edition subscriptions include application support, service packs and access to Compiere automated upgrade tools. In addition, Compiere or its partners can provide additional services including implementation, customization, integration and customer-specific cloud images.
Compiere Cloud Edition is available immediately through Compiere and its authorized partners. For more information, including pricing, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or +1 (650) 517-5900.
