Model Metrics Introduces the First Mobile Cloud Platform for the Enterprise

CHICAGO, IL–(Marketwire – August 24, 2010) –  Model Metrics, the leader in cloud computing services for the enterprise, today introduced the first mobile cloud platform for the enterprise, enabling business users to take critical business functionality with them, wherever they go. Based on the company’s 1,300 plus custom, mobile and mutli-cloud deployments including Crescent Healthcare and Elkay Manufacturing, Model Metrics 2GO Cloud Platform leverages the industry’s leading cloud technologies from Amazon Web Services, Google and salesforce.com to deliver enterprise-class mobile solutions with expanded device support, including Android and any device running Adobe® AIR®, HTML5 or iOS.

Mobilizing the Cloud
Model Metrics 2GO Cloud Platform was developed to address customer demand for enterprise-class mobile cloud solutions that are scalable, highly customizable and easy to implement in order to make cloud computing work for mobile workforces and to support today’s trend of more business interactions taking place on mobile devices. According to Juniper Research, the mobile cloud computing market is expected to reach $9.5 billion by 2014, with the majority of this growth being driven by businesses (ABI Research: ‘Mobile Cloud Computing’ the Next Big Thing, Juniper Research: $9.5 billion by 2014).

Users experience seamless performance whether on or offline and see an immediate impact to their productivity with streamlined clickstreams and usability.
  • Decreases time to market for customized mobile cloud solutions with pre-built functionality that meets 80% of business needs out of the box, and is significantly more cost-effective than solutions developed from scratch.

New to Model Metrics 2GO Cloud Platform

  • Additional device support includes a tested, pre-release version for Android devices utilizing Adobe AIR, with a general availability release expected at the end of 2010. Android device functionality includes advanced business functions such as bar code scanning integrated with Salesforce CRM out of the box.
  • In addition to life sciences, pre-packaged solutions now available for consumer goods and retail leveraging multiple 2GO Cloud Platform modules to improve field sales and service execution and enabling clienteling.
