Competing On The Cloud: Small Businesses Can Thrive With SaaS

7/22/2013: Years ago it was silly to think small businesses could have world-class software and platforms at their disposal. The cost of building software and maintaining technology wasn’t something most smaller companies could afford. Fast-forward a decade past the dot-com boom and the landscape looks much different. Today open-source software, cloud computing, and better techniques to manage both are available to any business for a fraction of the cost.

Software As The Great Equalizer

To put the software piece in context, a column in 2011 from Internet pioneer Marc Andreessen described how “software is eating the world.”

PYMNTS - SubtleData Seeks To Save Time, Money For mPOS Apps

6/5/2013: The old adage "the shortest distance between two points is a straight line," doesn't always cast the middlemen in a favorable light. But, in the case of what can be an overcrowded, inefficient point-of-sale market, one middleman could be just the remedy today's hospitality industry app developers need.

Founded in 2011, platform-as-a-service company SubtleData has created a middleware application that it says will allow app developers to provide a host of consumer and business benefits. SubtleData plans to do this by circumventing the lack of standards in the industry regarding application programming interfaces (APIs), data exchange and data storage.

Silicon Hills News - SubtleData’s Developers Garage at SXSW

3/11/2013: By Andrew Moore
Reporter with Silicon Hills News

Wouldn't it be cool if you could order and pay for a beer – or any other food or beverage – at your favorite bar just by using a smartphone? Sure it would. Can you? Well, probably not. While there are most likely a million cool ways to build an app that lets you order from your table or have a cold beer waiting for you at your favorite bar, there probably isn't any.

Why? Your Smartphone app doesn't speak the same language as the cash register at the bar. In fact, having a cloud based app communicate with the server infrastructure of an establishment’s point of sale system is really difficult. The POS infrastructure – as in your favorite...

PandoDaily - Will the Austin startup ecosystem ever live up to its promise?

3/8/2013: By Hamish McKenzie

For starters, the city hogs the tech industry’s attention for a week every year during South By Southwest, now hyped and mocked in equal measure. Then there are the heavy-hitter tech residents. Some of the biggest and most important tech companies have a presence here: Google, Apple, Facebook, Evernote, Cisco, IBM, Dell, AMD, National Instruments, and Texas Instruments, just to name a few. The local economy is booming, the state is business-friendly, and the cost of living is relatively low, compared to the coasts....

SubtleData Brings POS Integration To The Cloud

11/13/2012: Most of the technology glitz in the restaurant and hospitality industry will likely end up as an app on your smartphone. You’ll be able to whip out your device and pay your bill, redeem a coupon, or even help your buddy leave a tip for that last round. But having all those capabilities takes some non-glitzy stuff. Somebody has to provide the tools that give the innovators the ability to innovate. That’s where Austin’s SubtleData comes in.
