On-demand Podcast:  How ISVs can Successfully Transition a to SaaS Application Delivery Model


Many independent software vendors (ISVs) are transitioning to Software as a Service (SaaS) application delivery in addition to or instead of on-premise options in order to take advantage of the cloud's economies of scale.

However, for most ISVs, building, deploying, and managing cloud applications is uncharted territory with many unknowns, and it can be difficult to find useful information and best practices amidst the wealth of literature out there aimed at enterprises— not ISVs.

This in-depth, three-part podcast teaches specific considerations for ISVs hoping to successfully leverage a SaaS application delivery model, covering:

  • Motivations for ISVs to offer SaaS applications
  • Differences in requirements for ISVs vs. enterprises, and how they affect what you need to worry about when transitioning to a hosted model
  • How the data architecture of your application has a significant impact on the functionality you’re able to offer to your customers
  • And best practices to optimize data hosting.

Listen to this first segment to discover the benefits that your ISV peers are seeing from moving to SaaS application delivery.
