A partnership has been launched that is claimed to provide a dramatic reduction in the integration cost of cloud applications. The partnership sees First Hosted become the only UK distributor of efficiency saving QueCloud made by Queplix. The solution enables companies to securely integrate cloud applications such as NetSuite, Salesforce, LinkedIn and FaceBook with unsurpassed speed and simplicity.
The Queplix solution reduces the lifecycle total cost of ownership for data integration deployment by up to 75 per cent or more, compared to traditional ETL (extract, transform, and load) data integration tools.
The increased business efficiency and reduced set-up costs provided by QueCloud will benefit users, particularly as the most popular integrations, or application blades, which connect businesses' NetSuite world to any enterprise or cloud application, are available complete, off the shelf, often with no or minimal set up fee.
First Hosted managing director Andrew Peddie says, "Up until now, businesses such as those in third party logistics, would have to pay consultants' fees spanning into tens of thousands of pounds for integration with their customers' business platforms, such as Oracle, Peoplesoft and SAP for example.
"QueCloud is automated, quick to deploy and will easily configure common business applications such as Oracle and Salesforce with on-site applications and data like Google, PeopleSoft and SYBASE, at a reasonable 300 monthly contract fee.
"The addition of QueCloud to our range of simplified software solutions further enhances our mission statement of helping businesses avoid the pain and problems associated with conventional IT and software, including cutting associated costs such as the necessity for IT support staff."
Michael Zuckerman, chief marketing officer at Queplix adds, "We are extremely pleased to partner with a UK distributor that has a real understanding and passion for providing businesses with cost-effective and secure integration of enterprise and cloud-based applications.
"We believe, like First Hosted, that organisations will increasingly move toward cloud computing due to the operational and cost efficiencies it affords. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with First Hosted."
