Servoy CEO, Jan Aleman, was quoted in Processor Magazine in a Cloud Computing article titled “Happenings In The Cloud: A Look At Technologies & Trends That Are Developing In The Cloud Computing Market.”
Here’s a snippet of the article:
“However, cloud computing does not mean users are limited to working 100% in the cloud. An emerging trend is the use of ‘SaaS and Back’ hybrid applications that can be deployed as SaaS or on-premises through a browser and a native client, says Jan Aleman, CEO at Servoy. This new hybrid platform, adds Aleman, gives users the option of running their applications hosted online — on dedicated servers, virtual servers, or any form of cloud computing — or on-premises.”

Servoy announced the first open source version of its award-winning SaaS application development platform, Servoy 5.2, using PostgreSQL. This change to an open source version, means that Servoy users have enormous flexibility in deployment to cloud hosting or desktop systems; as well as enables open source developers looking for RAD tools, rapid prototyping and data application development to utilize a mature, easy-to-use environment.
“We chose PostgresSQL because it is the most powerful open source database,” said Jan Aleman, CEO, Servoy. “Users can also run other databases at the same time. We support Sybase, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB/2, MySQL and others out of the box.” PostgreSQL has won praise from its users and industry recognition, including the Linux New Media Award for Best Database System and five-time winner of the Linux Journal Editors’ Choice Award for best DBMS.
Servoy today announced the open source version of its award-winning hybrid SaaS platform, Servoy 5.2 – the platform that simplifies SaaS. Servoy 5.2 combines the best of both worlds, allowing “SaaS and Back” hybrid applications — which can be deployed using cloud computing and on-premises through both a browser and a native client – all from a single code base. Servoy is the only hybrid development platform for the “Open Source” era.
“With this open source release of the Servoy Developer and Servoy Client libraries, Servoy hopes to spark contributions from talented developers worldwide and reaffirms its longstanding commitment to the open source community,” said Jan Aleman, CEO, Servoy. “We strongly believe the future of software is open – and not only open as in open standards – but also open, as in open source.
Jan Aleman discusses escrow in a recent SD TIMES article.
But when a successful SaaS provider is acquired by a larger company, the results can also cause software or services to vanish.
Jan Aleman, CEO of SaaS provider Servoy, said that “if you have 100 customers paying US$5 a month for the product, then you’re in a different situation. Whoever is cleaning up the leftovers may say, ‘This revenue stream is so low, we’ll let it collapse and be done with it.’”
