CenturyLink Database-as-a-Service Solution Cuts Time-to-Market from Days to Minutes
2 page Case Study posted: 06/27/2014

CenturyLink prides themselves on being a trusted provider of multiple solutions to millions of business customers. With the increased attention on hosting data solutions in the cloud, CenturyLink looked to Microsoft SQL Server as the basis for their Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) offer. This opened up a number of options previously limited to solutions based on physical hardware, and private cloud offerings. Now customers are empowered to create their own innovative, user friendly, and cost-competitive solutions at a fraction of the cost, and deploy them in a fraction of the time. And because of this, the cost and effort to manage the systems has been dramatically decreased. The net result is, business customers are spending more money with CenturyLink (with a higher average revenue per unit, or ARPU), and their total cost of ownership (TCO) for their solutions is considerably lower.

APEX PLATFORM   2 reviews
Open source based-cloud backend platform, A gateway to the global market for new game companies
4-page Case Study posted: 04/22/2014

APEX PLATFORM migrated Gamming Backend as a Service, which used to run on AWS, to Windows Azure. This decision was based on the fact that being able to work in partnership with Microsoft is advantageous when it comes to promoting Pay-as-You-Go. There are further synergies found between Microsoft’s business model and the growth of game companies. Having weighed up the potential advantages, APEX PLATFORM saw that it would be better to go into partnership with Microsoft than have a client-service provider relationship like it did with AWS. Having completed migration of GBaaS, including the many kinds of services developed based on open source, such as Apache Tomcat, Cassandra (NoSQL database software) and Maria (relational database software), APEX PLATFORM plans to launch a beta service in April 2014.

HT ERONET realized it need a common information system that would make it possible for telesales to easily hand off leads to sales representatives in the field and provide the features required to track sales opportunities from qualification to the signed contract.
