Helping Coghead customers

It’s high time to take care of people that are affected with the consequences of Coghead downfall the most: Coghead customers.

They should quickly decide where to move their data, starting from the ground up. I think this time users will think twice before making a choice. So, in order to simplify their task at least somehow I listed below services which are ready to help and have even developed special offers to support former Coghead customers.

    For mid-size companies and divisions within larger organizations not willing to take the risk of an unproven startup, consider Rollbase as an on-site alternative.

    Rollbase is an enterprise-ready Platform-as-a-Service available for in-house licensing at the source code level complete with documentation and implementation services.

    Cordys offers Coghead users a quick and easy migration of data and applications to the Cordys Process Factory™ - an On-Demand platform for developing and executing process enabled mashup applications (MashApps). Cordys also offers free subscription, free support and 30 percent discount for additional services:

    That said, the demise of any company, especially innovative ones such as COGHEAD, is always a sad event. And in the never ending quest for new business most vendors have missed the point: This market is about more than mashups, it goes much deeper to what I call "Situational Application Provisioning" whereby a user can put together an ad-hoc “application” based around a normal working pattern for a small group of users with a specific need that is made from scratch or readily available mash up services - but that is also compliant, auditable, recorded and strategically governed.

    Hi,

    At Iceberg we're also offering a service to help people stranded on coghead. So far we've found Iceberg to be the closest match for Coghead users as it has both the interface design and visual workflow designer that coghead users need.

    We're also offering free migration (see details here http://blog.geticeberg.com/free-migration-for-coghead-users/)

    If you could include us in your list of alternatives I would greatly appreciate it and I think it would really help coghead guys.

    Thank you

    Wayne Byrne
    CEO
