“Real SaaS” Versus “Fake SaaS” – 10 Quick Questions

Real SaaS Versus Fake SaaS

SaaS is a modern business model for application software. A vendor who is invested in on-premise, hosted, and SaaS models cannot commit to providing all the benefits of a true SaaS model due to conflicting revenue models. Their resources are going to be spread thin supporting multiple versions rather than driving innovation. Additionally, if the vendor makes the majority of their revenue selling on-premise software, it will be very difficult for them to fully commit to a true SaaS solution since the majority of their resources will be allocated to supporting the on-premise software. Even if they do support multi-tenancy, their SaaS customers may have to wait several years for a new version if the hosted solution is constrained by the release schedule of the vendor’s on-premise product.

Therefore, when considering a SaaS solution, make sure that the vendor is a true SaaS vendor who is fully committed to the SaaS delivery model and has invested in a true multi-tenant platform. This is the only way to reap all the benefits that a SaaS model has to offer.
