Professional Software Management - RaySuite Appliance

 

The New Solution for Small and Medium Enterprises

Small to medium businesses (SMB) wish for a professional software management system, but often shy away because of the high costs associated with it. Just like large enterprises, they need a safe and reliable way to manage and update their applications and operating systems. They also need to relieve their IT resources. Ideally, SMBs should not have to manually deal with their software management and their tools should be able to support the entire lifecycle of an application.

And like so many other enterprises, those businesses do not want to have to spend a fortune on consulting services at implementation or whenever an upgrade of the software management tool is required. They want to be able to keep their existing infrastructure and at the same time possess a software management system that can grow with their company. RaySuite Appliance is the perfect solution for small to medium businesses because it can do all of this and much more; it is a system encompassing the entire “Enterprise Application Lifecycle Management” for small budgets. As an appliance, managed service or as a cloud solution.
