SourcingLine's new research identifies leading companies that specialize in developing cloud applications to run on the Force.com and Google App Engine platforms
WASHINGTON, June 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Today SourcingLine published Leaders Matrices for top Force.com Consultants and Google App Engine Consultants. The proprietary Leaders Matrix methodology encompasses two dimensions, the first of which assesses each firm's focus on application development, application modernization, and specialization in either the Force.com or Google App Engine application platforms. The second dimension of the Leaders Matrix maps the firms’ abilities to consistently deliver on client expectations. This publication follows SourcingLine’s industry-leading research on mobile application developers and Google App Consultants.
The Force.com Consultants and Google App Engine Consultants Leaders Matrices highlight firms that assist at all stages of application development and deployment to the respective platforms. Services typically include IT strategy, requirements development, application development, application integration, employee training, and ongoing support and management.
Out of hundreds of registered Force.com and Google App Engine Partners, only 10 firms were included in each of the Leaders Matrices. The firms are as follows:
Force.com: Configero, Cloud Sherpas, Force by Design, AppShark, Team International, Vertiba, Cloud Forward, Mansa Systems, C5 Insight, ForceBrain.
Google App Engine: SADA Systems, Cloud Sherpas, Maven Wave Partners, Promevo, Mylaensys, Vikont, LeewayHertz, Team International, Zensar Technologies, and Prismetric Technologies.
"Cloud platforms such as Google App Engine and Force.com allow companies to rapidly develop, integrate, and scale new enterprise applications," stated Sam Pettee, Manager Mid-market Research at SourcingLine. "All of the firms in our research have successfully developed and deployed mission-critical applications in the cloud."
