Software providers have traditionally delivered their software solutions by installing and supporting them on their clients’ internal computers and networks. Within the last few years, though, software vendors have begun receiving more requests from their customers to deliver their software as a service in a hosted environment. Clients want to avoid the expense and complexity of running these systems internally, and simply want to enjoy the benefits of using the software.
- Changing IT
To shift your entire business model to support “Software As A Service” can be a daunting task. Your revenue model has probably been developed to support upfront license fees, and suddenly shifting that to a monthly recurring fee is great in the long run, but challenging in the short term.
- Overcoming IT
You also now have to be responsible for running your clients’ systems and software with Service Level Agreements that have teeth in them. And you will need to support your clients 24/7 whereas you may not have done so previously.
