Documents for Software-as-a-Service came pouring into the Knowledge Network today. IT Business Edge contributor Michael Stevens added two items. The first is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Checklist, which is a list of the important factors you should evaluate before jumping on the SaaS bandwagon. The second document is a SaaS vs. On Premise TCO Calculator, which can serve as a first step in determining whether the potential delta between the two approaches is large enough to warrant further investigation.
The third and final SaaS document came from first-time Knowledge Network contributor THINKstrategies, a consulting services company addressing business challenges facing IT managers, solutions providers and investors as the technology industry shifts toward a services orientation. They provided a SaaS Primer for understanding and maximizing the value of SaaS solutions.
