San Jose, California – (The Hosting News) – January 30, 2009 –
GNi, infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider, will host SignalDemand’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) development environment for its price and margin optimization solutions.
Mike Neal, CEO of SignalDemand remarked, ”We are a high-growth business with extremely sophisticated, large-scale customers. Our applications have become mission critical to our customers and must be deployed quickly and managed securely to deliver maximum value. GNi’s service offering demonstrated considerable depth and we were impressed with their ability to meet our demanding requirements — especially compared to the many other hosting strategies and vendors we considered. GNi’s robust, secure and economical infrastructure allows us to focus on our core competency of developing and selling SignalDemand’s state of the art software solutions.”
SignalDemand, recently chosen for a Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Rising Star award and Gartner’s ”Cool Vendors in Manufacturing, 2008” designation will host its applications on GNi’s Dedicated Hosting Environment (DHI) High Performance Rapid Scaling Platform.
Using patented econometric modeling and sophisticated pricing algorithms, SignalDemand helps the world’s largest manufacturers make the best pricing, product mix and production decisions across geographies, channels, customers and products. The ability to accurately forecast and set optimal prices has become a strategic competitive imperative for large manufacturers in the wake of increasing volatility in the worldwide commodities markets. SignalDemand is the only price optimization company in its field that delivers its software on the increasingly preferred SaaS model. The company’s customers include global food, meat and industrial manufacturers.
Philip Bouchard, CEO of GNi explained ”We specifically engineered GNi’s DHI as the model for rapid scaling using tier-one hardware for high demand needs like the SignalDemand application. GNi is pleased that SignalDemand chose the Infrastructure as a Service model to deploy their solutions so that they may continue to focus technical resources on their customers instead of managing delivery.”
