As you are reading this, KiSSFLOW‘s payment handling mechanism has been completely moved out of Google Wallet. KiSSFLOW, from day one has been a product that was built keeping Google Apps Users in mind and we consciously decided to use Google technologies all-out. We use Google App Engine, Google Cloud Storage, Google Big Query, Google Cloud SQL and just about every Google Cloud technology that is out there.  We are extremely happy with Google’s Cloud Services and Support. But one product has been a pain for us for a while now – Google Wallet. When Google started moving away from Google Checkout to the new Wallet a couple of years back it seemed the most obvious choice for us. Firstly it was a Google product and since all our customers were Google Apps users we thought it would reduce any friction that might arise in the paying step. Secondly wallet seemed to be bri...

For example,   Need for abstracting business rules for modifying rules separately from rest of the application lead to the creation of the the BRE category with companies like iLog (now with IBM), Selectica (my ex-employer which is no longer in the BRE space – sad!),  Talarian...

Clearing the Confusion Around "Private Cloud"

I was on a LinkedIn thread titled ‘How cloud computing is different from SaaS‘ where Rick Chapman who runs SoftLetter and SaaS University went on beating on this question ‘What is a private cloud’? It is definitely worth it given the tremendous amount of confusion in the term ‘Cloud’ in general and ‘Private Cloud’ in particular. The motivation for this post is Rick and supported by a tweet I read around the same time from ‘Carl Brooks‘ who is a technology writer on Cloud at TechTarget. Let me give it a shot. First, Cloud is about leveraging economies of scale whether it is public o... (more)

Visual PaaS: If Data Is King, Then Logic Is Queen

Or, should this title be If Data is Queen, then, Logic is King - Queen (data) being the protected - in Object Oriented terms! Jokes apart, in the last post, I talked about the importance of Data Structure, i.e., data model and now you can understand why it is logical and important to talk about Business Logic. You can't imagine any business application without a business logic/rule. Yet, business rules are the most abused term and the least understood. Everybody knows the importance of it, but sadly everyone has a cliched understanding. In this post, I set out to articulate busi... (more)
