GetApp.com Features Astadia's Cloud Migration ROI Calculator

First-of-Its-Kind Tool Helps Businesses Make the Case for Cloud Computing Through a Simple Online Assessment

ADDISON, TX--(Marketwire - September 28, 2010) -  GetApp.com, the app store for business software, and Astadia, a pure-play Cloud computing integrator and top Salesforce.com partner, today announced the launch of an easy-to-use Cloud Computing ROI Calculator. This free online service helps companies analyze which elements of their IT infrastructure and software applications cost less and perform better when moved to the Cloud.

Companies are increasingly acknowledging the need to consider Cloud computing as a way to reduce operating costs and increase flexibility, but most struggle to understand which Cloud platforms are most appropriate for their needs. The Calculator has been built on the Force.com platform and shows the ROI of moving to platforms such as Google, Amazon Web Service and Force.com.

"Moving to the Cloud is a complex decision that involves many factors, and the ROI calculator is useful for understanding where a company should focus its initial efforts," said Manuel Jaffrin, Managing Director for GetApp.com. "Whilst the calculator is a great first step, a company deliberating a move to the Cloud should complement its analysis with a professional assessment from Cloud migration experts."
