Many hosting providers and service bureaus are looking at new and different ways to offer their customers value. Hosting web applications in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model is one increasingly popular option that can provide a great return on investment for end customers, particularly small and medium-sized businesses. But web applications have limitations, often in performance or features, and require the software vendor to completely reprogram their Windows software to work over a browser.
At the same time, traditional Windows software can be problematic for many end customers. The cost and pain of installation, license management, upgrades, and usage reporting are often considered “necessary evils” by customers—particularly those who have resource-intensive, graphics-heavy, or client-server applications that they rely on for their daily business.
Application Jukebox™ software from Endeavors Technologies is a different kind of application delivery solution. It supports 100% of Windows applications, even heavyweight apps. In terms of performance and features, an Application Jukeboxdelivered application looks, acts, and performs exactly like the application are running natively. But with centralized control, reporting, license management, revocation, integration with e-commerce portals, and other management features, you can now deliver non-Web apps in a SaaS model to your customers—without changing your existing hosting models.
