Professional Coaching and Consulting Company Leverages LongJump’s Custom
Cloud-Based Applications for Business Development and Resource Management

SUNNYVALE, CA, Tuesday, May 12, 2009 – LongJump, a leading provider of software that powers Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), today announced that The David Allen Company, experts in personal and organizational productivity, has selected LongJump’s Business Applications Platform to manage its business development and resource management operations for the company. LongJump’s multi-tenant platform is easy to deploy, provides a visual development environment and brings a unique approach to reducing the costs, complexity and repetition inherent in business application development and deployment.

“Before we made our selection, we evaluated several vendors, including some well-known competitors to LongJump. We felt that not only did LongJump go the extra mile to understand our unique business needs, but they also provided the most flexible application platform to address the complex business needs of an entrepreneurial company with global mindshare,” stated Robert Peake, CIO of The David Allen Company. “The functionality of their offering helped us realize the vision of how to optimize our business processes over time. We’re looking forward to a long and successful relationship with LongJump.”

Organizations can easily leverage LongJump’s existing IT applications, platform and technologies in whatever environment they choose. LongJump’s PaaS can be hosted as a service in the cloud, via a third-party infrastructure such as Amazon EC2, or licensed as an installable version enabling corporate IT to create their own private clouds, behind their own company’s firewall, giving them the full control and information security they require. Similarly, service providers and ISVs can license LongJump’s platform to develop and bring to market new, branded Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings to realize new revenue streams. Providing more deployment options for public and private cloud computing uses, LongJump is the only proven application platform that offers this distinctive hybrid approach.

“Having the recognized leader in personal and organizational productivity choose LongJump is a tremendous validation of the platform,” stated Pankaj Malviya, founder and CEO of LongJump. “For LongJump, winning over developers and businesses alike means incorporating industry standard tools, delivering a full-featured, enterprise-level platform, and reducing the time it takes for our customers to complete pressing application projects.”

LongJump’s Business Applications Platform was also just selected as a “Cool Vendor” in Cloud Computing System and Application Infrastructure in a newly released report on cloud computing by a leading analyst firm. LongJump’s disruptive and highly innovative approach to delivering its Business Applications Platform to companies and service providers made it the only “application platform provider” to be recognized from among the rest that were also acknowledged.
