SaaS Dictates Different Product Management Priorities
SaaS Imperatives Shape The Product Manager Role
November 3, 2008
Why Read This Report
Being a product manager for a software-as-a-service (SaaS) product is not exactly the same job for an on-premise product. To a great degree, a product manager's responsibilities and deliverables depend on the degree of ambition the company has in leveraging the opportunities that SaaS presents. Shaping the product management role to fit the SaaS product may not be easy, but SaaS vendors need product managers to deliver the customer insights and innovative ideas that may spell the difference between the product's success and failure.
