Quadrant 4 Systems Details Cloud Computing Offerings and Go-to-Market Strategy


June 24, 2011 - Rolling Meadows, IL

Quadrant 4 Systems Corp. (OTCQB: QFOR), a leading IT consulting company ("Quadrant"), today announced details regarding its Cloud Computing Offerings and go-to-market strategy to launch Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for small to large-sized businesses.

Quadrant's business strategy capitalizes on the increased demand for power and data capacity due to the explosive growth in data and processing requirements of most businesses. The Company's Cloud-based applications provide an alternative to in-house data centers, can accelerate the time-to-market and also reduce the large capital investments required for data center expansion, infrastructure hardware and software purchases for enterprises. CEO of Quadrant, Dr. Nandu Thondavadi, said, "Quadrant's near-term strategy is to begin offering SaaS followed by PaaS. Over the mid- to long-term range, Quadrant will further expand its offerings by including IaaS."

SaaS offerings are usually a broad range of common software applications such as Productivity Suites, CRM, ERP, Marketing Lead Generation, Product Lifecycle Management, Supply Chain Management, etc. Quadrant plans to provide popular applications such as GoogleMail, NetSuite and Productivity Suites, which will benefit the small-to-medium enterprise market.

PaaS provides a platform to software developers to build new applications or extend existing ones without having to purchase development, quality assurance, or production server infrastructure. This enables companies to create custom applications for their own use, while allowing third parties to create solutions for vertical niches. Quadrant is considering Salesforce.com's Force.com, Google's App Engine, and Microsoft's Azure to be offered as a part of this service.

IaaS offerings will deliver a virtual computing infrastructure to users as a fully outsourced service, where managed hosting and SaaS environments will be included. Users will have the ultimate flexibility to acquire and utilize infrastructure based on their requirements, which may be short or long-term. This will save the users the cost of investing in hardware and/or software infrastructure that may be used only once or not for months. Quadrant plans to adopt a "pay as you go" model, helping users to better manage costs by accessing IaaS on an as-needed basis.

Dr. Nandu Thondavadi concluded, "Quadrant's IaaS offering will allow all users to enjoy access to an enterprise-grade IT Infrastructure and resources that might be otherwise cost prohibitive. Our usage-based pricing can save considerable costs on products or services, which our customers may need only once in a while. For a start-up or small business, our services can help conserve cash by keeping their capital expenditures under control. Our infrastructure will give users the ability to quickly deploy applications as if they owned their own hardware and data center."
