There is no question that SaaS as a business model is becoming more and more attractive. According to Saugatauk Technology, Inc., 45% or more of new enterprise IT spend will be devoted to cloud-based applications by 2014.
Even today, SaaS revenue growth remains much higher than on-premise software growth rates. So it’s no surprise that most organizations are beginning or at least thinking about transitioning current business models to include SaaS. Chances are, YOUR ORGANIZATION IS ONE OF THEM.
SafeNet has spent a considerable amount of time focusing on how current customers are providing solutions in the cloud as well as those who are looking to be cloud-bound soon. We have identified major challenges and concerns about moving to the cloud and ways to manage through it all.
“Navigating the Cloud”, co-presented by Forrester, IDC, SafeNet and Saugatuck Technology, educates software publishers on best practices for software monetization in the cloud, including service catalog definition and management, usage authorization and metering, business process optimization, and more.
