SaaS in the Cloud

The ultimate in security, scale and performance

The Cloud is the coming of age of the external provision of computer processing power shared across enterprises. SaaS is a Cloud Application as it leverages the cloud to deliver software services shared across organisations .

The cloud delivers processing power and scale elasticity that was simply not accessible to the enterprise previously, and this has redefined how software is developed and delivered to the organisation.

The Cloud has two main forms, Public and Private. The Public cloud delivers on-demand processing power to any organisation willing to pay the admission fee and this has raised security concerns especially within the finance indsutry. The solution to these concerns is the Private cloud, where cloud access is tightly controlled - all organisations are security vetted before deployment onto the cloud and all processing is monitored and secured by the Cloud provider.

ICM SaaS applications run on highly secure Private Clouds and ICM has been providing these platforms to the global financial markets for over 10 years.

Private Cloud SaaS delivers the ultimate in processing power with near unlimited scale locked down tight in a secure sand boxed environment. All this without the enterpsie having to maintain any infrastrcture on its own account. This is the future of sofwtare delivery to the enterprise.
