12/15/2008 Magic Software's uniPaaS Provides Flexible Rich Internet Application and SaaS Platform for ISVs and Enterprises Gold Club Protected
Jeff Kaplan of THINKstrategies talks about uniPaaS, and the advantages of metadata-driven approach for RIA and SaaS development .

Jeff Kaplan recommends that ISVs and enterprise software developers consider SaaS platforms which permit the greatest flexibility in addition to their scalability and security considerations. 
Kaplan believes we are quickly approaching an era in which customers will demand a choice of acquiring SaaS solutions delivered in the ‘cloud’ or deploying the solution behind the firewall on-premise. In response, ISVs and enterprise software developers are recommended to start thinking about SaaS platforms which permit the greatest flexibility in addition to their scalability and security considerations.

In this context, Kaplan examines the merits of Magic Software’s uniPaaS application platform in offering a single development paradigm with multiple deployment modes. He thinks that uniPaaS represents an attractive platform for ISVs with existing single-tenant applications who want to migrate to a multi-tenant approach without ending up with two code bases and platforms to support. This can save ISVs significant monies and accelerate the time to market and ROI. 
Kaplan also thinks that Magic Software’s uniPaaS provides flexible Rich Internet Application and SaaS platform for ISVs and enterprises, by offering a metadata-driven alternative to typical code-centric software development solutions. uniPaaS provides ISVs and enterprises with the tools they need to cost-effectively develop RIA and SaaS solutions to cater to their varying requirements. It could help open up the SaaS market to more ISVs who otherwise would not attempt to carry on-premise and on-demand solutions, and could encourage additional market growth and innovation.
