The cloud is arguably one of the most significant trends ever to hit the IT industry. Total public IT cloud services (SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS) spending will reach $127 billion in 2018. The total IT market
will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of only 4.1% for 2013–2018, while the public cloud market will grow at a CAGR of 22.8%. This means that public cloud spending growth will be
five-and-a-half times total IT market spending growth.
Many IT managers, owners, and CIOs are embracing the benefits of cloud IT. Cloud has now reached critical mass in the consciousness of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), whether they are acquiring new software-as-a-service (SaaS) capabilities or making infrastructure upgrades via infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Among companies of all sizes, 50% are currently using at least one public SaaS offering, with a further 20% planning to implement public SaaS within the next year. Platform as a service (PaaS) and IaaS are less deployed today, but those areas are seeing substantial interest and growth.

It presents real-world successes and highlights the WebFOCUS BI platform as the ideal choice for SaaS vendors to extend their offerings with advanced BI features.
Without access to a mix of capabilities such as business intelligence, performance management, data quality, extensibility, analytics, location intelligence, and SaaS, organizations will be hard-pressed to optimize efficiency, performance, and the bottom line. The right partnership will drive new revenue and solutions for organizations of all sizes.
Responding to changes in customer business requirements can lead many companies down the path of delivering Software-as-a-Service solutions. While these SaaS solutions can speed up time to market and offer a more comprehensive solution, there are serious challenges to this process, and considerations that should be made before changing your business model. Learn the top strategies for migrating to a SaaS model.

The Digital Disruption Of SaaS Is Transforming
The ERP Software Landscape
Demand for cloud-based ERP solutions is
growing rapidly as midsize and enterprise clients
explore alternative options to legacy on-premises
systems. Pure-play SaaS vendors are seeing
increasing traction, while most traditionally
on-premises vendors are moving rapidly to
transition their business models from license plus
maintenance to subscription.
Anytime, anywhere access to work is now a basic need for the modern workforce. Whether remote, in the field or in the office, workers are no longer physically connected to your network or data center. Today’s employees work in a digital workspace that features virtualized laptops, desktop and workstations; a variety of personal systems and smart devices that may be part of BYOD programs and a diverse app ecosystem with desktop, remote, mobile, SaaS and Universal apps. In this mobile-cloud world, new and unpredictable forms of malicious software continue to evolve. Traditional network security, perimeter protection and firewalls are no longer enough to combat these new threats to the corporate IT infrastructure and company data integrity.
There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
If anyone remained skeptical about the cloud’s utility— and staying power—as a delivery mechanism for everything from infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to platform as a service (PaaS), software as a service (SaaS), and more, a quick look at recent statistics would surely change their mind. Indeed, with the cloud software market reaching US$48.8 billion in 2014 and anticipated to grow to US$112.8 billion by 2019, it’s clear that cloud computing is not just the way of the future, it’s also the way of the present.

Multi-tenancy is a key feature of Workday and enables multiple customers to share one physical instance of the Workday system in a highly secure environment. Multi-tenancy is enabled through the Workday Object Management Server (OMS). Workday OMS allows servers to host multiple customer tenants simultaneously and builds “security walls” between each of the tenants. Thanks to Workday OMS, there is no way for any worker in one tenant to access the information of another tenant.
Workday delivers its software using a continuous development model. Builds are rolled out weekly that contain new features, bug fixes, or performance improvements. Twice a year, Workday takes all the features put into preview and releases them to production for all customers. Workday customers are never landlocked on an old release, and all customers can utilize new features for the products they purchased as soon as they are live.

The shift to SaaS is gaining momentum and there are clear business benefits that can be derived. To optimise success, transformation strategies need to encompass all elements of people, processes, technology and organisational design. Adopting SaaS technologies drives significant change to the way organisations operate – from business processes to support model design and company culture. The implications of cloud adoption and technical challenges such as integrations, data migration and configuration must be fully understood and addressed from the outset.
Cloud-based solutions are revolutionizing the way that enterprises conduct business. These web-based versions of common business tools, like analytics or document management tools, retain most or all of the functionality of their desktop versions and provide significant access, customization, and utility to end users. More organizations are ditching on-premises solutions and adopting cloud-based tools, also known as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), "hosted," or "on-demand" solutions. The are becoming invaluable assets in today's agile and mobile workforce.
