Some customers are pushing independent software vendors to come out with their own appliances. Be careful what you ask for, because you may create something that you weren’t looking for. What happens if your favorite backup software product suddenly starts putting out its own appliance? At a minimum, other appliances from other vendors may cease to exist. Why should a big-box vendor partner with your backup software product only to compete with them? What happens when someone at the helm starts realizing that by creating a tighter integration between the software and the hardware, the company increases its bottom line enough to make that worthwhile? You may find yourself forced to buy a different hardware product than you want in order to keep the software that you like.

Cloud computing has ushered in a golden era for software companies. The cloud’s low barrier to entry allows
creativity to flourish, especially for software developers who are creating applications directly on cloud-based
infrastructure. Cloud-based infrastructure enables developers to do what they love: solve business problems and
bring innovative new ideas to life, using their choice of tools. In a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, applications
can easily be deployed to a cloud service, and delivered to clients who appreciate the ease of access and low cost.
The cloud model relieves the developer and the enterprise IT professional from the burden of managing or
maintaining capital-intense infrastructure.
But the cloud’s low barrier to entry also allows competing software providers to enter the market every day,
from every sector. Independent software vendors, or ISVs, are pressured by increased competition to deliver
their applications faster, with greater functionality and ease of
The cloud services market is now directly addressing the needs of application developers, with an emerging class of services that provides fast, on-demand provisioning; instant scale up and down capabilities, and support for multi-tier application architectures, as well as workload migration capabilities and a pay-as-you go model.
To be more competitive, small and medium suppliers are increasingly using Computer Aid Engineering (CAE) solutions. Download this white paper to see how IBM Cluster Solutions, powered by Intel Xeon 5500 Series maximizes the total cost of ownership for CAE environments and extend innovation in virtual products for manufactures and suppliers alike.
This report explores how cloud-based solution providers, such as managed service providers (MSPs) and independent software vendors (ISVs) are using an embedded approach to analytics in an effort to empower their customers and build a competitive advantage.

Many independent software vendors (ISVs) are recognising the benefits of offering software as a service (SaaS) as an alternative for their customers and once the teething problems have been overcome there are a number of long term benefits for both parties.
