ClouDesire enters an EC funded accelerator to better meet the needs of European software vendors

ClouDesire has been admitted in SOUL-FI, an accelerator funded by the European Commission within the Future Internet PPP programme, which aims to grow innovative web-based solutions for smarter urban life of Europe’s citizens.

During the three months program, ClouDesire will design some new features to increase the level of flexibility and customization required by the as-a-Service market, as well as to benefit of some supporting services and to connect with the SOUL-FI Europe-wide stakeholder network.

The software market is experiencing unprecedented changes. Cloud Computing and SaaS have fundamentally changed the economics of the software industry. Price structures, value proposition and business models for software delivery have changed.

ClouDesire wants to open the SaaS industry to hundreds of thousands of SME software companies in Europe & worldwide. We help Software Vendors to sell and distribute their existing software products as SaaS. Through any Cloud. Within minutes. Without programming.

Within SOUL-FI we are given the chance to better meet the changing need of the customers in the consumerised industry. We will increase our flexibility to:

  • let our customers define their preferred metrics to charge their cloud applications
  • give our customers a larger choice of cloud infrastructures

In addition, we will leverage the SOUL-FI qualified network to get connected with the cloud ecosystem and relevant stakeholders at EU level.
