PaaS? SaaS? What’s the difference?

Here at Cemplicity we run a SaaS platform. But every now and then we're asked about PaaS. So what's the difference? What we consider 'the cloud' these days can be broken into several layers. At the bottom level, there's the Infrastructure. This includes virtual machines, networks, servers, storage units, and even the physical data centres themselves. One layer ...

Keeping our code simple

Here at Cemplicity, we like to keep things simple. In fact, we're so keen on simplicity that it's one of our core values. Yeah, I know. Corporate values.

Under the Hood Part 1 – Prioritising work

There's a wall in the Cemplicity office behind where the development team sits that is covered in Post-Its. Every post-it represents a new feature, configuration change or, occasionally, bug that has been analysed, built and deployed to our production systems. It's a monument to the achievements of our small, but mighty, team. Like many organisations that take an ...

The SaaS Evergreen Advantage – Product Evolution

At Cemplicity, we’re a SaaS (Software-as-a-service) platform. There are many practical advantages for organisations to use SaaS including reduced cost-of-ownership, simple in-house IT capability requirements, low maintenance effort and a streamlined procurement process. I’m not going to talk about this well-documented list today but instead will focus on a more subtle and harder to quantify aspect often overlooked in ...
