CAPS Solutions partners with Attenda to launch on demand service management portfolio

(PresseBox) ( Frankfurt, )
Attenda, the Always On Managed Services company, today announced that it has signed a contract with CAPS Solutions to deliver a fully resilient hosting service to support Unity, its new portfolio of on demand services.

CAPS Solutions is the UK's number one provider of land, people and property information solutions to local government. Its market-leading, UNI-form software suite records and integrates information about land, people and property, enabling local government departments to share information using one central repository. Over 260 local government customers, more than 12,000 users and 60% of local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales use UNI-form software solutions.

Unity has been conceived in response to customer demand and offers a new model for the provision of its UNI-form land, people and property software and associated support services. With Unity Managed Hosting and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) local authorities will save up to 50% by selecting hosted UNI-form solutions and managed application delivery. The subscription-based services vary widely in scope, but each helps local authorities to cut and fix costs whilst at the same time improving their operational availability and reliability of UNI-form solutions.

Attenda is delivering the fully resilient hosted service for the technical infrastructure underpinning CAPS' Unity services, together with application delivery via CITRIX presentation server farm. The solution enables local authority users and the public to access the solution as an always on service, whilst Attenda take on responsibility for the operational certainty and IT risk of this business critical environment. Designed to be highly scalable and delivered in aggressive timescales in order to meet the needs of CAPS' growing SaaS business, the environment also has options for the provision of Disaster Recovery for those clients who demand the very highest levels of availability.

This win further underpins Attenda's strategy to build long term partnerships with key independent software vendors (ISV's) to deliver their software as a hosted service, thereby removing complexity, support costs and providing a more compelling financial model to both ISV and client.

Unity SaaS completely removes the need for any upfront investment in software licences and implementation services, effectively providing UNI-form on a rental basis. Many organisations, private and public sector alike are investing in this type of on demand software delivery to avoid capital investment and benefit from easier scalability, technology refresh and more predictable costs. IDC predicts that the UK SaaS market will be worth $ 8 billion by 2008..

Commenting on the new contract with Attenda, Mark Kennion, Strategic Initiatives Manager, CAPS Solutions, says "The launch of our new SaaS proposition continues to ensure that we keep pace with change, enabling our customers to reap the benefits of new technology developments.".

Kennion continues, "We chose to partner with Attenda because they demonstrated the proven capability to deliver on demand SaaS solutions in a consistent manner, with the high availability and reliability that our applications demand, together with an in-built disaster recovery solution. We look forward to building a long-term partnership with Attenda.".
