ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2013) - Corent Technology, the first IBM Technology Provider Partner certified as "Ready for IBM SmartCloud," today announced that its SurPaaS™ Software Delivery Platform as a Service has been recognized as a finalist for Most Innovative Cloud Solution by the Orange County Technology Alliance Annual High-Tech Innovation Awards.

Now in its 20th year, this premier awards program event celebrates achievement among the regional tech industry by honoring companies, individuals and products that drive technology innovation. The winners will be announced at a gala dinner event on Oct. 15, 2013, at the Hilton Costa Mesa.

"We are honored to have been selected as a finalist in this year's awards," said Feyzi Fatehi, CEO, Corent Technology. "Being recognized by the OC Tech Alliance as an outstanding innovative product is yet another validation of the Corent platform that saves years of development time and R&D costs typically taken to achieve scalable Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions."

"We received nominations from all of Orange County's most important technology companies," said Sigmund Fidyke III, president, Custom Software, and High-Tech Innovation Awards Judging Committee Chair. "We congratulate Corent for ascending to the finalist ranks. This region boasts many noteworthy companies that continue to influence technology development throughout the rest of the world, and we're excited to help highlight them."

Corent's SurPaaS - Private SaaS Edition uniquely allows IT organizations to become Private SaaS providers within their own global and extended enterprises and allows IT organizations to include suppliers, distributors and channel partners in their ecosystems. The benefits include providing greater agility in responding to quickly evolving business requirements and reducing traditional fixed IT operating costs. Private SaaS is a term Corent popularized as part of its seminal thought leadership whitepaper published by IBM in 2010, and translated to several European and Asian languages due to the global recognition and praise it received. Mario Leone, a globally recognized transformational CIO, recently joined Corent as the Chairman of its Technology Advisory Board to promote and evangelize Corent's "Private SaaS" within Fortune 1000 CIO community.

Corent's SurPaaS recently was awarded an extensive patent with twenty claims for transforming software to efficient multi-tenant SaaS without the high cost and time required to alter the code of the software application.

SurPaaS has been in production at well recognized companies including Boeing, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (Emmy Awards ®), EMAS Pro and uPhotoMeasure, among others.
