Firm Cuts the Cost of Phone-Based Data Access by 60 Percent With Cloud Offering
With more mobile workers depending on smartphones to stay in touch with work, enterprises are eager to find an easy way to give workers secure access to Line-Of-Business (LOB) applications through their mobile phones. Cumulux helps companies meet that need with mPortal, an application that integrates LOB applications and presents the results through a smartphone interface. To broaden mPortal's appeal, Cumulux converted it to a "Cloud-based" service using the Azure Services Platform. With a software-plus-services approach, workers get anytime, anywhere access to business data through their phones, and their companies reduce costs by about 60 percent by avoiding on-premises installation. The cloud approach reduces mPortal deployment time by 75 percent and accommodates unlimited scalability of customer data.
