Serena Software is planning to launch three business software applications via the Software as a Service (SaaS) on demand channel, to take advantage of users' move to Web 2.0 technologies.
Serena Mariner (Project and Portfolio Management), Serena Business Mashups, and Agile Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tools will all be offered via a SaaS platform later this year.
SaaS provides significant benefits for companies, with no infrastructure to manage, no software to install, subscription pricing, and immediate access to upgrades as they become available.
Serena Mariner will be available on demand within the next 30 days, said Serena.
Serena Mariner gives business people a way to manage projects quickly and easily without having to create unwieldy spreadsheets in Excel, Serena said.
Timescales for the SaaS release of the other products will be available in the near future, said the supplier.
