The ROI Of SaaS
A Total Economic Impact™ Analysis Uncovers Long-Term Business Value, But Cost Savings Are Not Guaranteed
May 13, 2016
Why Read This Report
Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is fast becoming a viable alternative for enterprise software across every business process category. But application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals must evaluate where SaaS makes business sense by looking at business value, cost, flexibility, and risk. This report looks at the longer-term impact of replacing an on-premises application with SaaS and provides detailed models for customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) scenarios. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
