1 Ensuring the availability and accessibility of quality software services

2 P a g e 2 Introduction This e-book is dedicated to the research made in analyzing how leading companies successfully buy, manage, host and deliver Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and increase their revenue. This addresses the effectiveness of SaaS Model in design, development and marketing in a software development lifecycle. For better understanding, Software as a Service (Saas) is a software application deployed as a hosted service which is accessible over the Internet. Till recently, software was traditionally delivered in boxes as a licensed copy along with a maintenance contract. Today, SaaS has become an innovative way of interacting and doing business. Following a SaaS model, instead of buying a software license for an application such as Accounting or Human Resources or Marketing and installing it on individual machines, a company or an individual signs up to use the application hosted by another company. This way the software is available to the consumer by just paying a subscription fee, rather than owning a copy of the software, thus saving greatly on the deployment and maintenance cost.

4 P a g e 4 SaaS Model an Effective Tool for Design, Development and Marketing In these difficult economic times, small as well as big businesses are looking at cost cutting and scrutinizing their basic expenditure. This includes cost cutting on manpower, office equipments and most important, the technology used. But to let business move on uninterrupted, organizations are constantly seeking more cost effective product development models. This has led to the evolution of the idea behind using Software as a Service (SaaS) where end-user access can be shared to reduce the cost and time of product development. With the advent of time Software as a Service is now popularly known as SaaS. It represents a method of using the software hosted by some companies and delivered to customers through a web browser on the Internet. With this, software hosted at a central location by its vendor can be made available to numerous users worldwide. What is a SaaS Model? SaaS model is a hypothesis of software deployment that includes providing a software application as a service to customers across the internet. SaaS model, therefore, can be considered as renting the software to global customers who can access it via the Internet. SaaS model providers evaluate the existing business model to determine the feasibility of the SaaS model, build the product using right development techniques and design architecture, deploy the correct SaaS solution and market it through social media marketing techniques. Software users through a SaaS model get the benefit of subscription pricing, hosted delivery, and outsourced technical expertise. This way the end-users save on costs, and utilize latest technologies more effectively. A well-designed SaaS model also ensures users of cost-effective access to updates. Advantages of SaaS Model Companies that choose a SaaS model gain the following business benefits: IT infrastructure cost will be significantly reduced No need to purchase any software or hardware Business risks can be shared among users Rapid deployment reduces the installation or maintenance cost Hassle-free implementation at multiple locations No need of any additional hardware or software infrastructure support Capital expenditure is reduced as the subscription fees can be paid easily System can be accessed anytime, anywhere by simply connect to the cloud. Easy access to comprehensive security, back-up, disaster recovery and support services. When comparing the costs of a SaaS solution and a traditional, premises-based software solution, people often fall into the trap of simply comparing the subscription fees of the SaaS against the software license fees of the traditional system. The application license fee is only a small portion of the total cost to implement, customize, manage and support traditional software.

5 P a g e 5 Leo Technosoft provides a lower cost of ownership over software by offering SaaS model services. As one of the few leading companies that provide comprehensive SaaS solutions, the company offers easier migration to a SaaS environment as well as scalability.

6 P a g e 6 SaaS Adoption A Cost Effective Partnered Product Development Model As a product development company are you finding it increasingly difficult to: Face rising competitive pressure Deal with shorter product cycle times Rush into new product introductions Maintain an IT infrastructure Find and retain scarce technical resources Control rising IT expenditures Deal with periodic software bug fixes Software-as-a-Service also known as SaaS offers a highly scalable solution to deal with all these issues and is the best alternative to buying expensive software and paying for periodic upgrades. For companies, this means that they do not have to worry about building an infrastructure for the software they propose to develop. Instead, the software is available through a hosting company via the web browser in exchange for a subscription fee. SaaS provides a viable alternative to paying for and maintaining technical resources and infrastructure. Companies leveraging applications delivered via a SaaS model not only move the business forward but can also effectively tackle issues arising out of the current economic crisis. Areas of SaaS Usage SaaS can be adopted for new product development, for specialized applications in customer relationship management (CRM), ERP, accounting, payroll, content management systems and other collaborative services made available on a pay-as-youuse or time-based pricing model via the Web. It is the best bet for on-demand application hosting, providing a cost effective alternative to traditional licensed software. Companies both large and small are increasingly adopting SaaS for its cost savings, effective security and simplified software management (for both maintenance and upgrades) and the flexibility it provides for supporting business needs. SaaS solutions provide the best alternative to avoid up-front investments in new software platforms by offering renting on-demand applications that would provide added returns where most needed. It empowers IT teams to facilitate cost-effectiveness with productivity that has to be retained particularly during a recession and in times of financial crisis. SaaS allows management to focus on core business rather than IT. Benefits: SaaS is a viable software model that has distinct operational advantages: Reduces IT infrastructure and management overhead Lower licensing and maintenance costs Easier upgrade to new future versions Instant access to technology updates On demand scalability SaaS is providing a faster and more economical option for organizations to deploy, run and utilize software.

8 P a g e 8 SaaS Product Engineering Company Partnership Benefits Each year companies face pressure to introduce new products and capabilities to market while at the same time integrate latest technologies and adapt new business models. It is here that product engineering companies need a strong technology partner who can utilize their business knowledge to convert a product idea into a world-class product. Partnering with another engineering/technology partner helps companies to accelerate product development cycles to bring software products to market quickly. More importantly, clients benefit from the experience and advice of the partner company in building and supporting multiple products. The partner company s services start from validating of the business idea, to product lifecycle, development, beta, deployment, maintenance and support solutions. The measurable business benefits of partnered product engineering include Quick ramp up of resources Successful reverse knowledge transfer to the new client Reduced engineering costs & better time to market Minimum risks Highly efficient team to fuel product innovation Reduced re-work and schedule slippages Partnered Product engineering is a strategic decision based on mutual trust and collaboration.

9 P a g e 9 Reaping the Benefits of Global Product Development Product development, though a mission critical process, is a very expensive task, most of which is spent on human resources. Therefore it becomes essential to spread product development activities across different global locations in order to better match valueadd to cost. The list of such nations for product development includes India, China, Russia, and other Eastern European and Asian countries. Lowered costs and high product quality levels can be achieved by product development through a global supply network. Global product development (GPD) brings about affordable technology. Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) are opting for the benefits of global product development, so that they can fully focus on core activities like customer relations, generating new product ideas, marketing, financing and so on. With heightened pressure to cut down product cost and time to market, ISV s can remain competitive only by: Reducing product life cycle Preventing technology obsolescence Building, tightly integrated products Partnering with another experienced, low cost product development service provider allows ISVs to leverage a strong value proposition, low time-to-market, reduced development costs and access to quality manpower. By spreading product development activities across multiple global regions, companies can better match value-add to cost. GPD represents a major transformation for companies and offers tremendous benefits Global product development enables simultaneous release of software in all target markets. Better product designs, with lower cost of production by more than 30%. Lower cost of resources translates to greater engineering efficiency Faster product development cycle End-to-end collaboration Decreased occurrence of bugs Agile development processes Transparent work processes Additional time-zone benefits Faster time-to-market For manufacturing industry, the global product development model is a necessary option to maximize efficiencies and minimize costs by leveraging active involvement, collaboration and cooperation across teams. For a successful deployment of GPD strategy it is vital for companies to segregate activities that are portable, from high-end activities that have to be conducted on-site.
