How to Plan and Implement a Successful SaaS Product?

99% of the companies in the market adopt at least one SaaS solution to run their business.

The basic idea of SaaS is to provide companies with the tools to develop and maintain their products without having to build a custom technical skeleton from scratch. By concept, SaaS-based applications can be built with a small budget using cloud-based storage and technologies.

Types of Cloud Computing Services

Three main types of Cloud computing are available:

  1. Internet-as-a-Service (IaaS)
  2. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)
  3. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)

All three models explain the modern yet different ways to describe the utilization of the Cloud for business. 

Each model offers specific functionality that is important to understand as a business.

The difference between the Cloud services models is very well explained by Albert Barron in his Pizza-As-A-Service analogy.

SaaS Product Development Process

The SaaS development process includes design, development, unit testing, debugging, and integration. SaaS testing should include security, performance, scalability, and capability, and the SaaS testing methodology is different from testing on-premises applications.
