I am excited to announce the general availability of RapidBIZ™ via VACAVA®, our simple to use, easy to afford integrated cloud application development and delivery environment. It truly delivers new IT productivity gains with simple to use pre-built/pre-tested application components assembled via a graphical drag and drop interface. VACAVA application process experts, architects and developers are using RapidBIZ today to quickly assemble and modify custom applications for our clients. We have built in strong database, security, and code extension capabilities to tackle complex application requirements efficiently. The headaches and expense of in-house servers is eliminated because we host RapidBIZ development, test, and production environments in IBM's SoftLayer cloud services.
We started building RapidBIZ 6 years ago for our own custom application development business. I've got to say, it was a bit painful for the first couple years because we didn't have all the functions and capabilities needed. But the RapidBIZ design team was quick to respond. We are now on our 6th major release of RapdiBIZ and use it exclusively to deliver cloud applications.
The VACACA team has experienced productivity increases up to 80% using RapidBIZ over traditional development methods! This chart shows how our productivity increases based on the complexity of the application type. We know this is true because it's what our programmers experience every day.
We are making RapidBIZ publicly available so that others can benefit from the significant productivity improvements that we've seen.
I want to make cloud development and delivery affordable for business of all sizes. Our pricing has no hidden fees, no surprises, and no long term contracts. We are offering the development cloud for one developer free of charge. This is not a try it and if you like it we charge you - this is full development and deployment capability enabling you to develop and deploy for testing purposes for one developer for free ongoing. Once you've developed the application and now want to move it to production, we have a very affordable cloud hosting environment to run the application in production -- all based on a monthly, pay as you go model with no ongoing commitment required.
