Application Hosting for ISVs PDF

As businesses make the switch to a more mobile "web based" business style, Independent Software Vendors often find themselves trapped. Years of application development, user training, and business intelligence is wrapped up into "fat applications" that rely on being installed on a client PC. Converting an app to be "web based" can take YEARS -- and convincing, converting, and training a dedicated user base can take even longer. That is precisely why The IDO Group offers hosted applications for ISV.

The IDO Group can publish your standard windows application in a manner that gives you the control and benefits of a fully installed application with the "access anywhere" benefits of a web based application. Applications are published securely and integrate fully and seamlessly with your users desktop, often users are unaware that the application is being hosted offsite.

We work closely with ISVs to provide reliable and secure delivery of "fat apps" to clients over the internet -- from industry specific applications to client/Server apps. By publishing your applications as a service to your clients through IDO, you are able to offer a predictable and often superior level of service as well as several benefits such as:

  • Apply application updates to a centralized installation for ALL users
  • A dedicated environment for your application that meets all requirements you specify
  • Customized backup solutions
  • A secure and easy to use method of delivery to client desktops or thin clients
  • Low monthly "per user" licensing fees -- No licenses to buy "up front"
  • Costs scale as your user base grows, aligning expenses with product success
  • Hosted on the IDO Groups's Enterprise Class Hardware
  • Availability to upgrade OS environment or database server software as needed
  • Hosted in our state-of-the-art datacenter facility


By offering their applications as a hosted solution, ISVs are prepared to capture the growing number of SMBs looking to concentrate on running their business rather than kepping their technology running. By choosing the IDO Group, ISVs are working with professionals with a long history of success providing remote and hosted solutions to business.
