ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- At tonight's welcome reception, Gartner Symposium ITxpo attendees are encouraged to visit the Emerging Technology Pavilion Theater at 7:45 PM for a dynamic 15-minute presentation on building next generation cloud applications with private PaaS from Diebold's Director of Cloud Services, Balaji Devarasetty, sponsored by Apprenda.
Coinciding with this evening's speaker, Apprenda has released a case study on Diebold that highlights how the largest U.S. manufacturer ($2.8B in annual revenue) of automated teller machines (ATMs) created the ability to offer world-class security self-service cloud applications as a critical competitive advantage for driving corporate growth.
When it became clear that having information accessible outside of its datacenter (public PaaS) would carry added risks, Diebold selected the Apprenda private PaaS as its application platform for next generation application development. Apprenda equipped Diebold to build, deploy, manage and run .NET cloud applications faster and better.
"Apprenda freed up our developers and operations team to focus on innovation and strategic business initiatives. Apprenda is a best of breed .NET PaaS and was the obvious choice for us when we looked at the value that it delivered against our current and ongoing .NET investments," Devarasetty said.
The case study demonstrates how Diebold benefitted from Apprenda including:
- An ability to leverage its existing assets and expertise with the Microsoft .NET platform, and using those assets to deliver on a cloud architecture vision
- Reducing security risk when compared to public cloud technologies
- Significant reduction in service deployment time
- Increasing productivity and reduce development time through deploy time configurable multi-tenant data models
"Private PaaS places us in the driver's seat by giving our IT organization the freedom to focus on mission-critical business challenges and developing new intellectual property," Devarasetty said.
