The wonders of the SaaS business model is even more clear in these tough times as capex budgets are tight and forward revenue visibility is critical. David Cowan pioneered Bessemer effort in recurring revenue businesses and led investments in 18 companies such as Postini, PSI-Net, Trigo, Hotjobs, Eality, Valicert, Register.com, Verisign, which he co-founded and where he served as CFO and Chairman, Keynote, Telocity, Counterpane, Netli, Qualys, Cyota, and more recently Lifelock, LinkedIn, Goodmail and Perimeter eSecurity. Philippe Botteri has been working with SaaS and technology companies for more than a decade at McKinsey&Co and Bessemer. He wrote several white papers on SaaS finance and has been involved with the firm's investments in half a dozen recurring revenue businesses. This slideshow presents a new perspective on the finance of SaaS and highlight the metrics that really matter most in the current environment. It also presents a benchmark of these metrics for a select set of private and public companies
