The exponential growth in software applications and accelerating customer or in-house requirements have an enormous impact on IT infrastructure. IT organizations are always searching for new approaches to increase capacity or add on-demand capabilities without investing in expensive new infrastructure. This need has led to the advent of cloud computing - a style of computing where scalable and elastic IT-enabled capabilities are delivered 'as a service' to external customers using Internet technologies. The concept incorporates Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service ( PaaS ).
The SaaS (or On-Demand) delivery model offers compelling advantages for ISVs in today's software applications and services market. Increasingly enterprises are adopting SaaS solutions faster than any other software delivery model. Yet, the challenges for ISVs are substantial when considering a move to SaaS. From revenue interruption to customer and data migration, the business challenges are as complex as the technical issues.
