SaaS Tips from Webapper
A few months ago, we wrote that “SaaS is huge.” Understatement? Perhaps. We write about SaaS because we seriously live it. Sometimes we build Software as a Service solutions from scratch for clients. We’re often whistled in to amend SaaS solutions when the core team is overwhelmed. Many times, we migrate SaaS applications from data centers or on-premises environments to the cloud. So, yes, in our world, SaaS is huge. If you’re in the SaaS arena, we wanted to round up our best posts — the SaaS tips we’ve shared over the past few months — to make it easier for you to learn about SaaS.
If you’re considering building software as a service, we suggest that you consider a few prerequisites for SaaS application development. Knowing where you are and where you’re going won’t guarantee success, but it will certainly reduce risk.
If you’re committing to developing a SaaS product (to take over your market!), you’ll also want to evaluate technology stacks. You don’t want to get a year into development and find you’ve made a terrible choice and must start over to reach your goals. We outline key factors you should address when choosing the best framework for your product.
Monetization is the process of deriving revenue from the value you offer from your SaaS solution to your users. We explain what software monetization is, share some key strategies in monetization, and provide examples of monetization strategies.
Having worked on a few different SaaS products (some successful, others not), we have seen the difficulties of bringing the system to market and growing it. We outline a strategic framework for creating your foundation for SaaS marketing.
At Webapper, we help clients build and host their web applications. Over the past 20 years, we’ve been a part of the evolution and adoption of Software as a Service (SaaS) in a variety of industries, from automotive to healthcare to finance. So being ‘grey beards’ in this space, we’ve been through it all, and that’s why we wanted to share our knowledge of SaaS, in the form of SaaS Hosting 101.
