Bungee Connect named as one of the Top 10 companies to track for 2008/2009

Robin Bloor, partner at Hurwitz & Associates, and founder of Bloor Research just published a list of 10 companies to track in 2008/2009. He named Bungee Labs as number 3, right behind Twitter.

“If your looking for new start-ups that might be successful, then keep your eyes on “the cloud”. Bungee almost counts as a case study in cloud computing plays, because it takes a complete charge by usage approach to garnering revenue from its development software.”

Who’s afraid of the big bad cloud?

DaveMThumbnail.jpg

Since we first announced Bungee Connect we have been advocating moving development of web applications to the cloud. During this time we have talked with many companies and developers about the benefits of a cloud-based development process. While most have been receptive to the idea, a few are a little afraid of what development in the cloud means and its impact to their overall productivity. Some of the most common fears we hear include things like “the code is not on my machine”, “I don’t control the environment”, “What about source control and team development”, and “I don’t manage the provisioning process”.

SugarCRM Integration Overview

Overview

I’ve taken some time to create another Bungee Connect reference application using the SugarCRM web services API. I have previously posted about NetSuite, Salesforce, and Oracle/Siebel CRM On Demand.

These small and simple applications perform the basic functionality of authentication, reading data, and writing data. The code is well commented and straightforward, providing an excellent foundation for one to base their own code on. Read the rest of this entry »

Bungee In the News: May

We have gotten a lot of great coverage lately and I want to call out a few key pieces:

Bungee: The Software Life Cycle as a ServiceRobin Bloor, Hurwitz and Associates

Nowadays development environments are like amoebas, they all look alike to me and they all seem to work in a similar fashion, but BungeeConnect is startlingly different in several ways.

How PaaS pulls software pricing downPhil Wainewright, ZDNet

The pricing is interesting because Bungee has done away with separate pricing for storage, bandwidth, processing and so on, instead setting a single fixed price of $0.06 (six US cents) per user-session-hour.

Jumping from SaaS to PaaSLauren McKay Destination CRM

Picking up where software-as-a-service (SaaS) leaves off in terms of integration and interactivity is the relatively new platform-as-a-service (PaaS) model. Bungee Labs, a young PaaS vendor, aims to ease the process of integrating siloed CRM applications with other Web-based business solutions and third-party data.

Bungee Jumps into a federated platform model – Robert Mullins, SD Times

Bungee Labs, a platform-as-a-service provider, is offering two options for hosting applications created on its developer platform, in an effort to serve enterprises who want to keep their applications on their own network as well as those with their heads in cloud computing.

Bungee Jumps into federated hostingClint Boulton, eWeek

Startup Bungee Labs is taking the next step in what it believes is the first comprehensive platform-as-a-service offering with federated hosting for its Bungee Connect platform.

Bungee Labs Evolves Federated HostingRichard McManus, ReadWriteWeb

Federated hosting, low pricing and perhaps eventually open sourcing parts of the platform are good moves – but the bottom line is that those features need to attract new customers. It’ll be worth checking back on Bungee Labs again at next year’s Web 2.0 Expo!

Enterprise Software: Customer Survey 2008McKinsey & Company

The second archetype is the development platform, typified by companies such as Bungee Labs and Coghead. The innovation here is around providing all or some of the integrated developer environment (IDE) tools needed for creating an application on the Web, in addition to hosting. It is a cost-effective alternative to licensing on-premise toolkits for developers, i.e., SDKs. While this is the most nascent, and hence least understood, of the three archetypes, it could create a tectonic shift in software development by opening application creation to a much wider array of developers for a modest cost and even enabling a new generation of non-developers to create SaaS applications easily.

Free White Paper: The Next Evolution in Web Apps: Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)

With more and more discussion occurring around the concept of Platform as a Service (PaaS), developers, IT and business managers are doing their fair share of head scratching, trying to understand the business value and benefits of a cloud-based approach to develop, test, deploy, host, and maintain online applications in a single, integrated in-the-cloud environment.

Announcing Bungee Grid-EC2, Bungee Application Server and Community Source Code Licensing Plans

This week begins another exciting phase for the Bungee Connect Developer Network, the Bungee Connect platform, and the Bungee Labs team. We have been working feverishly for several months to pull together the technical and logistical pieces to enable very significant new capabilities that we think will expand the number of solutions brought to market as Software-as-as-Service, increase the interactive quality and experience of those services, and provide more business and operational flexibility to developers.

There’s a lot to share with you today, so rather than trying to cram everything into one epic blog post, we’ve laid out the “headline” bullet points below with links to posts detailing more about each of these news items:

  • Bungee Grid now running on Amazon EC2 and accessible to Bungee Developers
  • Announcing Bungee Application Server
  • Community Source Code Licensing plans for Bungee Connect technologies
  • We look forward to your feedback.

    Martin Plaehn,
    CEO, Bungee Labs.
