Credenza Software   2 reviews
Success of ISV’s Product—and Business—is Transformed by Move to the Cloud
4-page Partner Case Study posted: 07/11/2011

Credenza Software won over professional-service customers with a product suite that augments Microsoft Outlook messaging and collaboration software with tools for logging phone calls, opening client-related documents, tracking billable time, and more. But the on-premises software had feature and user limitations that confined Credenza to its small-business customer base. Then, by using the Windows Azure platform, Credenza redesigned its software as a cloud-based subscription service. The result is an affordable, highly scalable solution that has expanded the company’s market base from 30 to 600 customers in one year. Moving to Windows Azure has also helped Credenza redesign its business model, turning the company into a provider of subscription-based services that can be delivered to customers regardless of their location and bringing in a steady revenue stream.

4-page Case Study posted: 11/17/2009

SugarCRM provides open-source customer relationship management (CRM) software and focuses on its “Sugar Open Cloud” strategy, meaning that the company makes its applications available for a variety of on-premises and hosted service platforms. The independent software vendor recently ported its application to the Windows Azure™ platform to enable its customers and value-added resellers to take advantage of real-time scalability, geographically dispersed Microsoft® data centers, and maximum data availability to gain high end performance without investing in additional infrastructure. The ease of deployment and pay-as-you-go pricing will also help customers control IT costs.
