RedPrairie teams with SAVVIS for U.S.-based data centers

SAVVIS will support RedPrairie’s hosting services business with on-demand capabilities tailored to support customers of all sizes. <br/>

Supply chain solutions vendor RedPrairie is expanding with two new U.S. data centers to support continued growth in its software-as-a-service capabilities via partnership with SAVVIS , a supplier of IT infrastructure services for business applications.

SAVVIS will support RedPrairie’s hosting services business, which has grown to more than 6,000 hosted sites across the retail, hospitality, petroleum, and distribution industries. Customers include multiple Fortune Global 50 customers, and the on-demand capabilities are tailored to support customers of all sizes.

RedPrairie was on the vanguard of the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) market, and hosted its first on-demand customer in February 2000. RedPrairie currently hosts customers from two data centers—one in Atlanta and one in London—and both centers will continue to support customers currently hosted there.

“Our customers are seeing great value in the software-as-a-service delivery model and in the E2e product suite. This is translating to great market momentum for our hosting services, which has accelerated as we have expanded our hosted offering across the full E2e suite,” says Stewart Chisam, senior VP of technology for RedPrairie’s Retail Productivity Solutions. “SAVVIS’ advanced hosting and infrastructure services model, featuring on-demand utility services such as virtualized storage, archiving and back up capabilities, allows us to flexibly respond to increases in demand, and gives us a worldwide footprint for expansion. That is reflected in our decision to expand into SAVVIS’ new data centers this year.”

The hosting option enables companies to deploy RedPrairie applications more quickly, with lower up-front capital expense and reduced IT personnel needs to support the application. The hosted model places tier-one capabilities within the reach of smaller retailers and offers an alternative, cost-effective solution for larger companies.
