Apprenda, a provider of enterprise Platform as-a-Service (PaaS), announced on August 12 the OneCloud Alliance, a partner program dedicated to bringing together best-of-breed Cloud providers to deliver portable and interoperable solutions without the fear of vendor lock-in.
The program builds on Apprenda’s commitment to encouraging flexibility, ease of use, and most of all, customer choice, when it comes to Cloud application delivery.
“Apprenda is a true customer-first organization,” said Matias Klein, vice president of Intelligence Hub at McKesson. “It’s refreshing to work with a company that’s focused on more than just their own product. They’re an advocate for us, and work together with other companies to provide us with better solutions, delivering more value every day. We’re looking forward to working with new OneCloud Alliance partners to continue to drive innovation at McKesson.”
Many enterprises struggle to integrate new technology, like Cloud computing, with existing legacy investments. The OneCloud Alliance brings together companies that are committed to application portability, and ensuring that both old and new technologies work together seamlessly to provide a highly-effective and intuitive approach to Cloud application delivery for all enterprises.
OneCloud Alliance customers are assured that they have the freedom to choose the best approach for their company, maximizing existing investments while achieving the benefits of a modern Cloud environment, which include faster time to market, increased developer productivity and the opportunity to more easily uncover new revenue streams.
“We’re a different enterprise software company — we’re truly customer-first,” said Sinclair Schuller, CEO of Apprenda. “Our customers have lamented the challenges of working with locked-in enterprise stacks that vendors have sold them in the past. This will not happen with the OneCloud Alliance. It’s our commitment to customers that we will work with other vendors to ensure interoperability and portability in the Cloud era.”
