“We are thrilled to have such a highly accomplished, insightful and proven technology leader join Corent as we are about to embark on an aggressive go to market plan together with some of the key Cloud industry leaders,” said Feyzi Fatehi, Corent’s CEO.

Corent SurPaaS automatically migrates and Cloud-enables any software application as fully instrumented SaaS for efficient delivery ‘as a Service,’ saving years and millions of dollars worth of manual design and programming effort.  SurPaaS was named the most Innovative Cloud Service and was recognized by the Gartner Group for its innovative approach for rapid delivery of conventional software as fully instrumented SaaS (Software as a Service). Corent was recently awarded a patent for its consequential invention of “Software Defined SaaS®” platform.
