2012 CODiE Winner - Apprenda

John Golke, Senior Territory Manager, West at Apprenda, explains the main contributing factors to the success of Apprenda as Best Cloud Platform.

Apprenda is an Open Platform as a Service (PaaS) stack that enables any organization to transform existing infrastructure into a self-service cloud application platform. By decoupling applications from infrastructure and developers from IT, Apprenda empowers organizations to achieve significant cost savings, and massive productivity improvements resulting in better business/IT alignment.

Apprenda makes PaaS a reality for even the most mission critical applications and workloads, focusing on helping companies leverage their vast amounts of .NET code and existing Windows infrastructure by offering a “plug-and-play” self-service .NET cloud platform approach. Apprenda can be deployed on public or private infrastructure, providing flexibility and freedom from lock-in and tremendous increases in developer productivity, infrastructure utilization, and agility in the management of.NET, SQL Server, and IIS-based apps. Apprenda provides a self-service utility model that allows users to upload compiled code and in a click, “publish” it. Developers can deploy apps in minutes rather than weeks or months, while IT can maintain control and consistency of service.

The Apprenda platform is the only installable PaaS that is proven and in use by organizations like Symantec, Honeywell, and other substantial enterprises. Companies who have deployed Apprenda see increased agility, reduced complexity resulting in faster time to market.
