The application developer LongJump has extended the field of companies offering core applications on the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model with the launch of a database system.

It is the latest company to join the small but growing range of companies offering database-as-a-service (DaaS) software, allowing organisations and individuals to build their own applications on a low-cost software model.

LongJump will offer software that can be used to build database applications that can then be made available at low cost. People can use the software to build their own database applications, which can be small or large and tailored to fit any number of different requirements.

Kognitio is a company with a similar offering. It also has a database system available on the DaaS model, but its offering is tailored to work as a data warehouse. Kognitio is a UK company and is planning to launch its product officially in February.

According to Kognitio's marketing director, Sean Jackson: "Database as a service (DaaS) is driven by the fact that business users cannot get what they need from their IT department in a timely manner. By outsourcing their analytics and data-warehousing requirements, organisations can get on with their projects, get the analysis they need fast and use that actionable intelligence to their advantage. DaaS is about disconnecting the business needs from the typical bottleneck of IT."

LongJump's software can already be used for creating applications in sales, marketing, HR and finance. The new database application will cost $20 (£10) per month for Rest — or part — access and another $20 per month if Soap-based access is required as well.
