  2. 2. Business White Paper Series AALPHA INFORMATION SYSTEMS INDIA PVT. LTD. QUEST FOR VALUE FROM EVERY IT $ Technology leaders in large and mid sized organizations the world over are realizing that information is a critical leverage for innovation, economy in operations and truly customer oriented business process management. After the integration of data and application, the demand of industrial users is naturally turning to business integration and innovation. Yet enterprises face disappointment in the returns on these very factors from investments in advanced enterprise wide implementations of ERP, CRM, WPM (work force performance management) and e-commerce platforms. The value derived from these traditional on-premise systems seems to be falling over the years, paving the way for the need for a new paradigm for service delivery platforms. Two key concerns have been unaddressed: no respite in cost and complexity with traditional applications over time, and demand for broad- based, on-demand consumer oriented innovations in a dynamic, increasingly Web 2.0 world. S According to a recent Gartner study, A $8 out of every $10 are considered A maintenance money, S in IT capital expenditures. Unfortunately, on the average, investments in IT do not directly deliver business process improvement and subsequently, competitive advantage. And this means, the end promise of traditional enterprise applications still remains unfulfilled today: to improve the industrial chain, integrate the industrial ecological resources, and innovate and change business models. In other, simpler words, meeting changing industry demands with competitive advantage. MAIN DRIVERS FOR CTO RETHINK • Need for greater control on cost of acquisition and maintenance of solutions • Search for stronger cost-to-value equation, and lower risk
  3. 3. Business White Paper Series AALPHA INFORMATION SYSTEMS INDIA PVT. LTD. NEW APPROACH? NEW VALUE. Let’s look at what happens in a typical development project. The pitfalls persist: tedious implementation and deployment cycles with high costs, complex upgrades and high expenditure infrastructure. Hardly collaborative, the development gets bogged down due to development queues, internal communication hurdles, different perspectives, challenges in holding course with business logic, resource allocation and expanding E timelines. C R Instead of this common scenario, let’s briefly chart the wish list of most progressive CTOs. Ready-to-use M functionality, pre-tested solution components and ready-to-deploy hosted environments at the enterprise technologists’ disposal. Add to this the exciting assurance of fully realized, scalable, demand-matched service components that help radically improve throughput and time-to-market. I N SAAS DELIVERS S Y The recent rise in SaaS (web-based, on-demand, Software-as-a-Service) adoption is shifting the focus to where it belongs – improving business without the burden of infrastructure and unnecessary costs. SaaS model is A O U based on the premise that with the Internet's complex computing model, high-performance computing could bring about automatic management, automatic equalization, automatic restoration, uniform system image and A R real-time monitoring so as to broadly reduce the complexity and usability of IT management. S E It is a on-demand delivery model where software can be hosted remotely and charge on a subscription bases, providing a fully hosted web-based solution accessible over the Internet. It allows organizations to engage, N outsource or select a single or chosen set of business processes, instead of a complete application. This T eliminates the need to deal with hardware, databases and additional technology infrastructure components as E with typical software applications. Allowing enterprises to experience pre-tested utility and functionality R necessary to meet business objectives in a dynamic business environment. P R THE DRIVERS OF THE SAAS MARKET I S • Globalization and borderless competition commoditizing many markets E • Organizational imperative to deliver employee services with secure remote access • Growing focus on user-friendliness through technologies such as broadband networking, grid computing, virtualization, Open Source and Web 2.0 • Demand for more productivity from enterprise applications

S DISRUPTIVE, TRANSFORMATIVE, BENEFICIAL Organizations interested in this new paradigm of software services delivery will be forced to rediscover core business logic for their process environment.
