For most Independent Software Vendors, the decision isn’t whether to enter the cloud; it’s how. Business users and consumers alike have shown a strong preference for easy access, low pricing, and simple updates enabled by the Software as a Service model.
But whether they have built their software on a cloud platform or are migrating from a traditional licensed model, ISVs have reason to be wary. In the cloud, they are not delivering a product, but a service. Their ability to build and deliver their SaaS applications securely and cost-effectively, while meeting customers’ high expectations for availability, performance, and price, depends largely on the cloud vendor and infrastructure service they choose.
