Emptoris Makes Behind-the-Firewall Deployments Easy and Economical With Echos

Echos Delivers the Security and Operating Flexibility of a Behind-the-Firewall Deployment With the Ease of Deployment and Cost Benefits of an On-Demand Delivery

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) - Emptoris, Inc., a leading provider of strategic supply and enterprise contract management solutions, announced today the launch of Emptoris Echos, a software delivery solution that enables companies to effortlessly deploy the Emptoris suite of applications behind-the-firewall with the ease, efficiency and cost benefits typically associated with on-demand models. 

"For years, companies have been intimidated by the prospect and costs of installing, configuring and maintaining an enterprise application, yet endured these challenges in order to reap the operating flexibility and security benefits that such a deployment provided," said Terrence Curley, Senior Vice President of Development at Emptoris, Inc. "Emptoris Echos was designed to eliminate these technical challenges and reduce their total cost of ownership."

Emptoris Echos is a cloud-based delivery system built to streamline the deployment and management of Emptoris solutions. With Emptoris Echos, companies can install and run Emptoris solutions behind the firewall within minutes. The solution removes the technical challenges associated with on-premise application hosting with pre-configured, turn-key installations and upgrades. As a result, Emptoris Echos significantly reduces total cost of ownership of strategic supply and enterprise contract management solutions. 

"Global 1000 companies often prefer to run certain strategic applications behind their own firewall. In fact, more than 50% of the global companies using Emptoris Contract Management choose to deploy the solution on-premise," said Kevin Potts, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Emptoris, Inc. "Historically, such on-premise deployments require additional investments in hardware, software and consulting, as well as broader internal IT capabilities. Emptoris Echos eliminates those requirements and adds 'burst' capabilities to support fluctuating demands for performance."

With Emptoris, customers are able to select their own preferred method of deployment, whether on-premise or on-demand and concentrate on leveraging their strategic supply management solutions to deliver value in their business.
