What I’m reading: Pain in the SaaS?

by ,

Tony Byrne, Founder of CMS Watch – a vendor-neutral technology analyst firm – recently published an article titled “Pain in the SaaS?  When your traditional software vendor hosts you application” that I thought is relevant to this audience as many traditional installed software vendors in the digital asset management space begin to add “on demand” or hosted solutions to their mix. 

The article discusses the software and the software as a service divide and what to look for in a business model when considering a software product.

Considerations mentioned include:

  • Security
  • Branding
  • Repository models
  • Upgrades
  • Technical support and professional services

My advice is to consider the core competency of the software vendor before making a selection…is it software or is it software as a service?
