* Open markets/increase license revenue by increasing the accessibility and usability of your application for a broader audience – including your channel
* Eliminate support costs squandered on resolving OS or platform issues, which drain 40% or more of your support budget
* Get to revenue sooner by avoiding release delays caused by OS/platform certification
* Avoid the next big headache – certification of multiple hypervisors for virtualized environments
