In March 2010, WebFilings launched a Google App Engine-based SaaS solution that dramatically improves the process of developing and filing financial reports with Securities Exchange Commission (SEC). "App Engine gives us a flexible, object-oriented datastore that enables us to iterate in a way that's not possible with traditional database and ORM software. When combined with ease of deployment to cloud, we're able to develop at a rapid pace and deliver timely, incremental solutions for our customers' emerging needs," said Dan Murray.
"In addition, App Engine appspot gives us a secure place for our customers' data. Finally, our costs with Google App Engine have been unbelievably low. We don't need large IT staff to support our product because App Engine scales automatically. Our costs have been and continue to be orders of magnitude lower than anything I've ever experienced."
