Greentree gets GaaS


Greentree is now offering its ERP software as a global Greentree as a Service - GaaS.

Greentree, a leading provider of ERP business management software, has launched its Software-as-a-Service offering, Greentree as a Service (GaaS). It is a true Software as a Service (SaaS) solution enabling organisations to run their entire Greentree system in the cloud as well as being able to scale-up and scale-down the user base as required.

GaaS is a natural extension of its ERP software which has been hosted in the cloud since 2002. With the launch of GaaS, it now offers Australian organisations three deployment methods for its ERP solution: on premise, cloud-hosted and as-a-service.

“In building GaaS, we have looked to create the best possible software-as-a-service experience for the mid-market ERP customer. This means providing the full functionality and configurability that the Greentree4 ERP software currently delivers to on premise and cloud-hosted customers, as a bundled, user-based, monthly subscription. GaaS includes software, cloud hosting, maintenance and a range of other services,” said Peter Dickinson, CEO, Greentree International.

Also, GaaS users will benefit from a single tenant hosting environment, delivered through a high-performance cloud platform, optimised for supporting ERP deployments.

Analyst firm Gartner predicts that 33% of Australian and New Zealand CIOs will prioritise Cloud as their second area of new IT spending in 2016 while 17% will prioritise ERP as their fourth area of new IT spending in 2016 ahead of categories such IT security, CRM, networking and legacy modernisation.

According to Dickinson, the ERP mid-market has been slow to engage with cloud-based deployment. “For most mid-market enterprises, their business management systems are absolutely mission-critical,” he says.

“Most companies have made a significant investment in legacy systems and data and are quite rightly cautious when engaging with new technology platforms. But we are now seeing the balance swing in favour of the convenience, flexibility and minimal upfront capital requirements that SaaS offers. This is matched by cloud performance now meeting the high-volume processing, security and risk-management profile the mid-market demands,” he says.

“Experience tells us that the SaaS user-based licencing will be particularly appealing to those that are new to ERP and are looking to rapidly scale their business. It is also a great starting point for those that want to get their ERP journey underway immediately, without having to wait to get the required physical infrastructure in place. With GaaS, customers get to select the functionality they want from the Greentree4 product portfolio. It isn’t in any way shape or form a ‘light’ offering – it is simply another way to conveniently deploy our software,” he added.

GaaS is available through the Greentree partner community which includes nine partners in Australia, many of which specialise in specific vertical markets, including services, distribution, aged care, mining, logistics, community housing and not-for-profit operations.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
