What Should You Consider when Evaluating Software as a Service?


Sebastian Holst, VP Marketing

Runtime: 03:23

Key Takeaways:

  1. Don’t evaluate software as a service (SaaS) different from other types of technology investments.
  2. SaaS Benefits: Reduce total cost of ownership; Speed time to deployment; Effective change management; Constructs that support multiple control frameworks.
  3. External certifications (Ex: SAS70 Type II) are important to reduce and even transfer the risk of IT governance to the software supplier.
  4. Migration of data to a SaaS offering is the same as migration to any other enterprise application except much of the complexity is eliminated.
  5. Security of web-based applications can be evaluated with regular third-party intrusion tests and audits as well as site visits.
