Morgantown, WV (PressExposure) April 07, 2009 -- Virtual Global, Inc. has released the TeamHost Cloud Computing System, an online toolkit for creating real Web software without programming.
With TeamHost, entrepreneurs and web designers can create web-based software for their customers using simple point-and-click tools. Software developers can use TeamHost to create their own âdotcomsâ in half the time, risk and cost.
TeamHost is the first Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for creating Web 2.0 software with rich user experiences. TeamHost developers can create a scalable Software-as-a-Service that goes beyond data entry to also support user subscriptions, commerce, role-based access security, workflow, team collaboration, federated search, business intelligence reports and more.
âIts not uncommon to see organizations invest 10s of millions of dollars and years into Web softwareâ, says Cary Landis, Virtual Global CEO. "TeamHost lowers the risks, because it manages the complexities â like web services - behind the scenes. In that sense, its like an operating system for the Web-as-a-platform.â
Tens of billions are being invested into Web software annually. Gartner estimates the Software-as-a-Service market to reach $19.3 billion by the end of 2011. And as federal IT spending exceeds $60 billion annually - that number is sure to grow as Recovery Act dollars translate into a new generation of federal software projects, including health-IT. Statistically, as many as 70% of these systems go over budget, while others fail to meet expectations.
âWe hope to also promote SOA integration and interoperability,â says Landis. âAt its core, TeamHost is an open platform for integration engineered under the sponsorship of NASA. This means that web services and products from different vendors can play together on a common architecture.â
TeamHost is not just for high-end software companies. Michael Teel, a veteran Web designer for a small business in Charleston, WV, said, âTeamHost makes me feel like an advanced software developer. It lets me do some things in an hour that used to take a team of advanced coders several weeks.â
Web designers like Teel are a growing force shaping the future of technology. As software giants like Microsoft and IBM are laying off thousands of workers, the entrepreneurial talent pool is growing faster than ever. âWe see the emerging pool of entrepreneurs as a tremendous company in itself,â Landis says. âThey have more combined ideas, talent and ambition than any other business in the world.â There are 10s of millions of web designers worldwide, many of whom have limited skills to take their ideas to market. TeamHost also lowers the cost of getting started, because developers dont need to invest upfront into expensive development tools and servers. With TeamHost young software companies can create enterprise systems that scale to millions with minimal skills and investment. TeamHost lets a developer get started for $5 per month.
The TeamHost system includes a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS); a point-and-click toolkit called the TeamHost Factory; and reusable modules called TeamHost Gizmos. Advanced developers can use the TeamHost API to extend functionality and integrate the TeamHost platform with other web services and systems.
