Check out this interesting article. Some interesting takeaways;
- SaaS means faster time to market and a more business centric cost model that allows for closer aligning of IT costs to business impact
- some companies deploy a SaaS solution as an interim solution for a problem and then ultimately end up keeping the SaaS solution after being pleased with the value
- what is outsourced in SaaS is merely “grunt work that should have been done by the vendor”
I’d argue that all these points come from the perspective of SaaS as a cost saving substitute and not a value-adding one but the article is itneresting nonetheless.
