Mountain View, Calif. - February 27, 2009 - Caspio, Inc. (www.caspio.com), provider of the leading do-it-yourself database platform for creating web applications, today announced its first customer migration from Coghead, a Hawaii-based agency that quickly deployed several web applications using Caspio Bridge within one week of Coghead's shutdown notice on February 18, 2009.
The agency, Quality Behavioral Outcomes, serves the state of Hawaii's Education and Health Departments with behavioral health assessments, training, and support. Todd Addleson, the agency's Director of Behavioral Services, was immediately tasked to migrate several mission-critical database applications out of Coghead. He quickly chose the Caspio Bridge platform-as-a-service because of its ease of use, longstanding reliability, security measures, and seamless website deployment.
Addleson's migration to Caspio was such a smooth process that he had all the applications up and running within a few days. Not only was it fast and easy, the agency will immediately benefit from significant cost savings with Caspio's unlimited user pricing.
"I wish we would have gone with Caspio to begin with," Addleson said in retrospect.
"We're sorry to see the situation with Coghead, however it gave us the opportunity to demonstrate our platform's capabilities and our team's effectiveness," said Frank Zamani, founder and CEO of Caspio.
"Caspio was the first provider to create a transition program for Coghead customers, and we're pleased to announce the first successful migration," Zamani added. "Our team is working with a number of Coghead customers and resellers to achieve a similar smooth transition."
Caspio's transition program was arranged within hours of Coghead's discontinuance announcement, and includes:
