News editors obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Business efforts strive to respond to customer demands quickly, get products to market faster, increase overall profitability, and consistently outperform the competition. Agility, the ability to meet these common market challenges, is dependent on a solid business application technology platform. To achieve business agility, a multifaceted, intelligent software infrastructure is needed that is designed for application integration.
"Business application platforms are typically single tenanted, meaning that they can host applications only for a single organization and all the platform resources are dedicated only to that organization. Such platforms are typically hosted by the customer and installed and deployed within their company premises. The cost for deploying and maintaining such platform may be high and the return-on-investment not optimized.
"On the other hand, designing and managing multi-tenant systems has its own challenges. In a practical multi-tenant system, each client may have a different schema for connecting to their organization. Furthermore, each client may connect to multiple organizations rendering the management of such systems a very complex task from security, traffic management, reliability, and extensibility aspects."
As a supplement to the background information on this patent application, VerticalNews correspondents also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "This summary is provided to introduce a selection of concepts in a simplified form that are further described below in the Detailed Description. This summary is not intended to identify key features or essential features of the claimed subject matter, nor is it intended as an aid in determining the scope of the claimed subject matter.
"Embodiments are directed to providing an extensible, multi-tenant software-as-a-service model for serving multiple organizations from a single platform. A platform according to embodiments may include a discovery service for providing clients information associated with a location and configuration of the organization services hosted by the platform. The client is then enabled to access the organization services, which may be hosted in scalable clusters. Location changes may be provided to the client(s) for uninterrupted access of the client to the requested service(s).
"These and other features and advantages will be apparent from a reading of the following detailed description and a review of the associated drawings. It is to be understood that both the foregoing general description and the following detailed description are explanatory only and are not restrictive of aspects as claimed.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
"FIG. 1 illustrates an example single tenant service model;
