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.

Organisations in the service industry have got to be on their toes at all
times to stay afloat in the fierce competition. The key to be successful is

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

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

same time from ‘Carl Brooks‘ who is a technology writer on Cloud at
TechTarget. Let me give it a shot.

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
You can't imagine any business application without a business logic/rule.
Yet, business rules are the most abused term and the least understood.
