Lower TCO and Cloud enable your applications using 'Application as a Service' offering from Infosys

Take a sampling of recent IT strategy discussions, the topic of 'Leveraging the Cloud' will feature prominently. A vast majority of the newer applications are built exclusively for the cloud. Does that mean all the existing application landscape and infrastructure is excluded from the deriving the benefits of the cloud? The answer thankfully is a resounding 'No'.

In a typical IT landscape, customers have separate contracts for different components of a single application

·        -  Licenses for the application from the software vendor

·        - Hosting fees from the infrastructure vendor

·        - Implementation services from a system integrator

·        - Managed services post implementation from a system integrator

·        - Upgrade fees from system integrators


The upfront capital expenditure requirements are also becoming prohibitive in getting projects approved.

Infosys has a creative 'Application as a Service' offering in partnership with Oracle. The solution is available for any 'traditional on premise' application like Siebel, E-Business suite, PeopleSoft etc.

Infosys 'Application as a Service' solution solves these challenges:

·        - Single contract covering all aspects of the Application - Licenses, Hosting, Implementation, Managed services and Upgrades

·         - Cloud hosting with best in class hardware with regular refresh cycles

·         - Simplified Opex based pricing with equated monthly payments

·         - Fees based on 'Pay as per usage' to provide financial flexibility


The solution helps in lowering the overall TCO for the application and providing all the benefits of a Cloud based application. In the session Infosys will talk in details about the model and case studies of successful implementations.
