Cloud computing is gaining worldwide traction and its rapid adoption is being driven by the need to have a ubiquitous, scalable and elastic product offering. Faster time to market and reduced CAPEX and OPEX are just some of the business of cloud computing.
Offering a SaaS product must factor in product readiness considering the existing and prospective user base, as well as new investments to achieve wide market acceptance. It is equally important to factor in readiness for scale since customers expect on-demand additional resources during their peak consumption periods.
To deliver Software as a Service (SaaS) Software Solution Providers typically work with cloud services offered by Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, Google App Engine or some infrastructure hosting companies. The choice of Cloud Service typically depends on the technical and commercial requirements of the service being offered.
