Cordys Launches Enterprise Cloud Orchestration System to Deliver First Platform as a Service (PaaS)
Cordys, the leading provider of software for business process innovation, has launched the Cordys Enterprise Cloud Orchestration System (ECOSystem), a process-centric, flexible, responsive and cost-effective platform for the development of business applications in the cloud. Deployable as a complete Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution, this innovative approach delivers full application server, middleware, integration and BPM capabilities where and when needed.

Cordys ECOSystem delivers dynamic business service provisioning via the cloud, enabling the composition of user-specific applications based on packaged and custom-built business services, as well as enabling dynamic orchestration and provisioning in a multi-tenant environment with no capital expenditure.

With the entire field of computing fast becoming a cloud - a collection of disembodied services accessible from anywhere and detached from the underlying hardware – Cordys ECOSystem offers a unique approach to deploying business applications and is available on a pay-as-you-go, subscription-based pricing model.

Jon Pyke, Chief Strategy Officer of Cordys, stated, “Just as VMware has launched its vCompute capability for infrastructure, Cordys has launched the ECOSystem for application vApps.”

Cordys ECOSystem reduces integration, testing and deployment costs for enterprises both large and small. The technology fully respects and utilizes existing IT investments and infrastructure, providing complete integration and middleware capabilities in private and public clouds. It utilizes BPM techniques to ensure compliance, governance and control, with built-in support for any type of workflow for flexibility and ease of use.

Jan Baan, Founder and CEO of Cordys, stated, “The cloud is the ideal mechanism for utilizing extensive computing power – be that storage or specific applications. As it stands, it saves you money. But it doesn’t help you innovate. By that I mean the cloud itself does not enable you to build applications to meet business needs. Process technology, in its broadest sense, lets you do this in an easy and flexible way – the processes orchestrate the interaction and integration of services. The Business Operations Platform (BOP) is at the heart of Cordys ECOSystem, enabling organizations to deliver new products and services to market faster, adapt to changing market conditions and scale their operations up or down quickly and frequently.”

The Platform delivers a high-performance, highly available and scalable architecture, with embedded functionality, such as Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) and Master Data Management (MDM). Cordys ECOSystem reduces TCO and expansion costs due to the extensive capabilities of the platform. With Cordys ECOSystem, as soon as a new enterprise system goes live, so does the process changes it enables.

Jan Baan says the cloud will change businesses and commercial IT in many ways, most of them hard to predict, but one theme is already emerging. “Businesses are becoming more like the technology itself: more adaptable, more interwoven and more specialized. These developments may not be new, but the advent of cloud computing will speed them up. It is time that organizations start to consider how to exploit the opportunities of the cloud.”

“This cloud of computing resources will have profound implications for the organization, not least in the way traditional business processes are designed, delivered and deployed. Business operations in the cloud is inevitable. The time to take advantage of this innovative approach is now, delivering instant results and executing processes the same way everywhere and every time,” he added.
