The 20 Coolest Cloud Platform Vendors Of The Cloud 100

CRN Magazine just finished their round up of the Cloud 100 companies for 2013. Again this year, LongJump is made the list of 20 Coolest Cloud Platform Vendors. You might be saying to yourself – “that’s terrific I also want to do business with a cool company!”   That’s great – call me right now.  Or, you might be thinking, “cool” by whose standard and how can a cloud platform be cool at all.  Good question. Around here we don’t feel too cool. We sometimes feel very nerdy.  Let’s face, any discussion of application platform development topics can very quickly get very […]

Salesforce and the Changing Face of Customer Service

On Tuesday, Marc Benioff outlined his new vision for Salesforce: become a customer company. You can read more about it here. Of course, no business would last long without customers but there was one quote in particular that really jumped out at us:    We couldn’t agree more. The challenge here is that in today’s business environment the customer uses more channels to communicate than ever before. It’s no longer enough to simply set up a 1-800 support number. In […]

Platform as a Service Takes on More IT Responsibilities

We of course believe in application platform as a service and we’re one of the first companies to launch a modern, multi-tenant, PaaS.  So we’re very happy to hear that the analysts are predicting that 2013 will be a banner year and that enterprises are coming to realize the benefits that aPaaS can deliver to their operations. “Adoption of software as a service amplifies the requirement of extension, management, integration and composition of cloud-based or hybrid software.  Enterprise IT planners and application architects should be familiar with its capabilities and use patterns. – Yefim […]

There are multiple types of PaaS, and vendors are playing in more than one sub-category, so it’s not easy to tell the players without a scorecard. Here are 10 companies […]

Know Your History, Using the PRIORVALUE() Function

One deeply set feature in LongJump is the ability to find out what the value of a previous field was. It’s immensely helpful, however, when you’re building data policies to be notified of changes to records, but only specific changes. To accomplish this, you’d use the PRIORVALUE() boolean function in LongJump’s formula expression engine. To demonstrate, I’ll actually use a real world example: ours. When users sign up for a free trial on LongJump, a record is added in the backend, and we store the information about them as if they were a […]
