CDC Software Corporation has announced its new cloud SaaS application, specifically developed for the Windows Azure platform. In its news release, CDC said that the company has already piloted CDC Respond on the Azure platform and plans to deliver the product by the end of the year.
"The announcement of CDC Software's cloud solution for Respond is the latest move in the company's plans to expand its growing portfolio of cloud-based solutions and increase recurring SaaS revenue significantly during the next few years. Already, CDC Software had made several cloud-based acquisitions, as well as made investments in two SaaS application companies as part of its Strategic Cloud Investment Partner Program (SCIPP). Under SCIPP, CDC Software plans to make minority investments in, and form strategic reselling partnerships with, companies offering cloud-based or point solutions which complement its enterprise solutions portfolio."
