Current Market Overview • As of April 2010, none of the top 50 Web Hosting companies in the world were using a Web 2.0 product to manage their MySQL servers. In a world where Cloud Computing and SaaS (both of which are strategic Web 2.0 concepts) are the market trends, there is an exciting opportunity to set a new standard for the industry by offering consumers such a product. • The flagship software of NovaQuantum is A.R.M.S: Advanced Resource Management System, a fully fledged Web 2.0 product for managing MySQL servers.
Give more for less • The web hosting industry is being driven by merciless competition and customers are expecting to have more features included in their hosting package, for the same money • Power users are always looking for tools to improve their productivity (time is money!) and the first stop in this quest is their web hosting provider • The time for static web tools or standalone products has passed: Web 2.0 is here to stay!
Competition • A.R.M.S. stands in a very unique market position at this time, as it is the only product of its kind available anywhere in the world. • With no other products that offer a full Web 2.0 interface for MySQL management, the closest competitor is an Open Source product that uses static web pages: PHPMyAdmin.
Business model Software-as-a-Service (SaaS): a software delivery method that provides access to the application and its functions as a Web-based service. SaaS allows organizations to access business functionality at a lower cost than paying for licensed applications since SaaS pricing is based on a low monthly fee. Some important benefits: • Regular non-disruptive platform upgrades • Single platform where new features and function are added seamlessly • Upselling potential • Low Risk of Investment • Our solution will have ROI in less than 30 days
What this means for you • The ability to offer your clients a software that would improve productivity for database management. • An opportunity to make your customers happy by offering a value added service that cannot be found anywhere else. • An increase in the market share and a chance to set a new standard for online management of MySQL by offering a web service with a lot more features than the most commonly used alternative. • Cloud Computing and Software-as-a-Service models are gaining more followers all the time, and having a product in your portfolio that has been built from the ground up with those trends in mind, will bring a competitive advantage.
New Revenue Streams • Upselling the full featured version of the application to power users • New customers attracted by the Go-to-market joint effort • Lower customer attrition due to the increased customer satisfaction generated by the provision of an innovative and unique Web 2.0 product • Strategic market advantage (nobody else provides a web service like this) will bring new customers
Benefits for Web Hosting providers A.R.M.S. delivered via SaaS on premises includes a lot of benefits: • Free Trial : It allows a no-risk opportunity for customers to try the product in their familiar environment • Ease of use • Very low upfront capital investment • Ongoing, seamless updates & service improvements over time – free of charge • Rapid deployment • Simplicity in support model – technical support is delivered to your company instead of end user customers • Reduced risk • Offers customers the option to terminate their subscriptions in the event that they no longer require the service • Vested partnerships • Our agreements are dependent upon reoccurring subscription renewals therefore all partners have a financially vested interest in the customer’s satisfaction and software success
