  • THE ADVANTAGES OF SAASClearly, it is important to consider the business advantages of each potential solutionbefore deciding. Let’s take a minute to consider all the advantages of SaaS asa solution. SaaS offers certain business advantages to small and midsize businessesthat other potential solutions do not:Financial Value• Time to Value – SaaS is quickly installed and more quickly made part of thework process when compared with on-premise software. Often it is possible toself-provision a trial use, or “try before you buy,” a SaaS solution to get a feelfor how it looks, feels and operates. Typically, once licensed, a SaaS purchaseris up and running in a matter of days or weeks, rather than months, as ismore frequently the case with traditional vendor software. As a consequence,the SaaS purchaser can begin to realize the business benefits earlier. The paybackperiod is much quicker, and the ROI is significantly better than with vendorsoftware.• Affordability – SaaS does not require large up-front investment, and especiallyin a recession presents less of a financial hurdle when compared with onpremisesoftware. Small-to-midsize businesses with limited capital budgetsand limited IT support will find SaaS is far more suitable to their needs thanvendor software. Two recent studies comparing the total cost of ownership ofSaaS versus on-premise vendor software each show approximately 30% lowercosts with SaaS, whether the implantation is for 30 (Yankee Group) or for 200(McKinsey Consulting) users.New Technology• Continuous Innovation – Instead of twice yearly upgrades, SaaS solutionscan be enhanced on a regular and almost continuous basis. Major releases mayalso appear annually, consolidating all of the enhancements along the way.One of the key enabling SaaS technologies, multi-tenancy, makes possible thiscontinuous stream of enhancements. SaaS users do not have to wonderwhether a new release or upgrade will break their system or cause a significantdelay in parallel testing prior to switching over into full production. The SaaSprovider assumes this responsibility behind the scenes and without intrusiveness.Improved Operations• Customization It has become increasingly easy to adapt SaaS solutions to fitthe needs of small-to-midsize businesses. Some SaaS solutions exploitmultitenancy to enable customization by programmers or system integra-tors. Other SaaS solutions target end users with easy-to-use configuration capabilitiesthat allow non-programmers to easily modify their look-and-feel ortheir business processes. For many small-to-midsize businesses, configurationmay be a more appropriate approach, due to its simplicity and lower cost (noprogrammer required).•• Fewer Technical Resources – Possibly one of the least-anticipated SaaSbenefits is that it requires significantly fewer technical resources to managethan on-premise software, reducing the strain on IT organizations. For thesmall-to midsize business this is an enormous advantage. At the same time, byutilizing the expertise of the SaaS provider, which has state-of-the-art data centersand technology at its disposal, the small-to-midsize business can take advantageof the latest in leading-edge technologies, including Web 2.0 and collaborationcapabilities that might otherwise be beyond its reach. In this way,the small-to-midsize business can obtain access to next-generation technologywithout having to manage it.• Focus – Without the distraction of managing the IT function – hardware, software,networks and technicians – the small-to-midsize company will be freedup to focus on its core competencies, its core value-add. SaaS is a way of outsourcingthe onerous aspects of the essential IT systems the small-to-midsizecompany needs to run its business and manage the challenges of growth, regulationand competition.
