  13. 13. Apps developed with Delphi already on rollApp: • Apophysis – Freeware fractal flame editor – • Arena Chess – Free GUI app for chess – • Turbo Cash – Open-source accounting software – We used original unmodified executable Windows versions of these apps available for download on their websites 14
  14. 14. • Move from one-time upgrade payments to recurring revenue from subscriptions • Explore cost-sensitive market segments with “pay-as-you-go” pricing models 15
  15. 15. • No downloads, installations or upgrades necessary to start using your applications • Users always use the latest version • Update process is transparent for the user 16
  16. 16. • Only a browser is needed to start using the app – every modern platform has that • You can easily bring your applications to – Macs – Chromebooks – iPads – Android tablets 17
  17. 17. • Readily available global infrastructure for deployment to public cloud • No need to install plugins or “receiver” applications • Applications work like other applications installed locally and are not confined to remote desktop viewport • Cost-effective Linux-based backend, no need for additional platform licenses or CALs 18
  18. 18. • Linux apps – Fast and easy • WINE-compatible Windows apps – Fast and easy – Most Delphi apps are WINE-compatible • Windows apps not compatible with WINE – We can modify WINE to support your app (usually takes from a few weeks to a few months) – You can modify your app to make it compatible with the current version of WINE 19
  19. 19. • Public-cloud – Applications are published using rollApp’s global cloud infrastructure • Private-cloud (Managed service) – rollApp components will be setup and run on client’s computing infrastructure – rollApp employees remotely setup and manage rollApp technology components on the client’s servers 20
  20. 20. • Using rollApp public cloud – rollApp logo/name will be used in rollApp- specific UI elements (specialized toolbars, etc.) within virtualized applications • White-label solutions – No reference to rollApp in applications – Your logo/name in all places where rollApp logo/name would appear in rollApp-branded package 21

  25. 25. 1. Proof of Concept – App is privately published to rollApp public cloud for compatibility tests and configuration fine tuning 2. Setup – App deployed according to selected deployment model 3. Production use 26
  26. 26. • Proof of Concept: free 20 hours of professional services – public-cloud deployment – includes up to 20 hours of professional services free of charge • Setup phase: $80/hr for professional services – setup and customization if billed on Time and Material basis – we charge $80/hr for professional services • Production use: from $40/mo to $15/mo per concurrent app session – pricing based on maximum # of concurrent application instances allowed – no limits on # of actual users working with your app – for deployment to rollApp public cloud prices range: • from $40/mo per concurrent app if you need 50 concurrent apps • to $15/mo in large-scale deployments – application hosting services are billed as monthly subscription 27
