Today, software developer michaels, ross & cole, ltd. (mrc) announces their new cloud partnership program. This new program is designed to help application software companies make a smooth transition to cloud computing.

This cloud partnership program addresses a growing problem for application software companies: As cloud computing gains popularity, more and more prospects will seek cloud based and Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions. Software companies without offerings in these areas will become less competitive and lose valuable new business. They will be caught having to go through the difficult process of recreating their software for the cloud in order to remain competitive while their revenues and profit margins shrink.

The new cloud partnership program takes the pain out of this transition. Application software companies that partner with mrc receive the experience and tools they need to move to the cloud. mrc provides customized training, advanced support, and over 8 years of experience building web and cloud-based applications. Additionally, partners receive special licensing for the m-Power development platform, which lets them:

  • Enhance their current application software with many types of cloud-based solutions including:

    • mobile applications,
    • embedded Business Intelligence applications,
    • end user reporting, and more.
  • Build a complete SaaS offering: m-Power automatically creates multi-tenant web applications, a crucial aspect of cloud-based applications. As a result, application software companies can easily create full SaaS versions of their current application software.

  • Reach more prospects: Creating a SaaS offering opens application software companies up to a whole new and much larger audience. It gives them a growth path for the future.
