A world-class SaaS product will transform your industry. Are you ready to build it? By investing in the development of a SaaS product, you’re investing in the future of business software. When you monetize your product through some form of a subscription business model, you open your product up to SMBs that couldn’t previously afford a software solution. Do you have large enterprise customers? Large companies are subscribing to SaaS products at record rates because enterprise IT departments have realized SaaS products can be as secure or more secure than software hosted on-premise.
Established behemoths and startups alike are building cloud-based SaaS products for every business role and industry vertical. Whether you’re building a new SaaS application from the ground up or migrating your on-premise architecture to a multi-tenant SaaS architecture, you’ll save on cloud infrastructure and maintenance costs when your SaaS application is complete. You’ll also see productivity improvements from your product development team who will be able to rollout new features to all of your customers faster.
SaaS is at the heart of most agile software companies making a dent in the business world today. The shift in software distribution has changed the way both businesses and consumers view software. Consumers today look for agility at all digital touchpoints. The advantages of SaaS when it comes to this are unmistakable. For the SaaS business owner, scalability and anticipated revenue create a predictable ecosystem for the growth of your business.
Shifting to SaaS is more than just the building of a new product. It’s a completely new channel, opening up a new market opportunity for your business. By 2022, 75% of the total cloud workloads will take the form of SaaS, according to the Cisco Annual Internet Report. This is not surprising to our team. In the past few years, we’ve seen how nearly all software market segments are being driven by the SaaS implementation and helped a considerable number of companies make the transition.
Building SaaS products involves a plethora of decision-making. As a founder, you might struggle to prioritize properly while developing your product.
These are questions that will make or break your product. In this journey of building an ambitious dream, you need a thought partner to lean on and a team with the experience of building scalable, high-quality, fast-developing SaaS products across industries. Let us make your journey easier from now.
Every SaaS development project begins with a concept or a plan. The software package itself is the heart of it of course. But who does the product serve? What problem is your product solving? To help define what the product is, we encourage potential clients to pursue a discovery session. This results in a thorough specification from which a project can be defined. It is hard to get a sense of the entire project without this. From there, our team will lay out a technology solution to power the platform. Then we will begin in a phased and structured way to develop your application when given the go-ahead.
This is the actual product that performs the functions required to serve your user. How this product works will ultimately differ for each project. Proper definition and specifications will not only ensure the project is built properly but also that it is built in a phased approach that allows for growth and flexibility in the future.
The informational site, although often overlooked, used to market and sell the software is a crucial part of any SaaS project. To make sure the front-end SaaS site has the correct content areas, targets the proper buyer personas and progresses the user to the free trial or other foot-in-the-door offer, special care has to be taken.
Ultimately, the front-end site must connect to an account system to process payment options and sign up the new users. Additionally, users must be able to edit and update account information on an ongoing basis. The processing of transactions on an annual or monthly basis, in a secure fashion, is a key part of this.
Our team’s goal is to build you an end-to-end solution that incorporates all of the necessary pieces of the SaaS puzzle: the product, the sales platform, and the account management part. All three can integrate seamlessly into one platform when built correctly. All systems will be combined into a single piece of software by doing so, as opposed to being spread out into many different platforms.
Multi-tenancy architecture lets your business serve everyone efficiently, from big enterprises that require access to the cloud’s unlimited computing resources to small customers whose scale might not warrant dedicated infrastructure. Software maintenance and development expenses are shared, reducing expenses, resulting in savings for your business and investors.
Here the resources such as application, database, and infrastructure are typically shared among the tenants. It ensures optimal usage of resources as these resources are shared commonly among the tenants. When it comes to operating efficiency, this architecture can give the best results, but it also comes with its share of complexities/risks.
The application layer in this model is commonly shared among all the tenants. Say the application server layer has 4 clustered servers; then all the 4 servers can serve any of the clients. However, the database is different for each tenant. The tenant architecture determines the level of separation.
Here the Database layer is kept common across all the tenants, but the application layer is isolated. There are certain cases wherein this model will come in handy.
Each of the 3 data models has its own advantages and disadvantages. When designing the database, that important layer, take into account the number of your tenants and their business needs. Choosing the right approach in some scenarios may not be as easy. You will need a larger development effort if your application stores tenant-sensitive data, as you will need to prepare a security strategy before the application can be ready for production.
Evolution in the capabilities or performance of the software is often driven by the business. Customers expect a lot from today’s software. Solutions will ideally have to be fast, reliable with varying traffic loads, and available globally. Development solutions, too, will have to be cost-effective and scalable. Developers should be able to update the code, then test it and deploy it to various locations with high velocity and precision. Today, solution functionality could be applied to various use cases with few alterations, despite differences in data sets. This need has driven various cloud providers to build innovative tools and solutions, allowing development teams the ability to reuse hardware, thereby optimizing the cost of the infrastructure. Now to take advantage of all the opportunities the cloud provides, one needs to adapt the architecture of the software they write. That new architecture will have to align with the specifics of the hosting environment to leverage the benefits of the cloud. This is truly where the multi-tenant architecture shines. To ensure maximum security, our team has adopted the OWASP Top 10, end-to-end encryption and encrypted data at rest and in transit. We are PCI, HIPAA, GDPR compliant. Multi-tenant architecture gives you the versatility and power to build your application with resource-sharing in mind.
