Major Factors In The Industry For The Refinement Of SaaS Services In The Year 2013

The year 2012 proved to be one of the most effective years that helped the establishing of the SaaS (software-as-a-service). After having got the proper assertion and the definition of the SaaS service in the year 2012, the year 2013 is associated with the refinement of SaaS services of cloud computing – the following given are the key factors that can help SaaS services to be the most effective and efficient in the domain of cloud industry.

Mobile Computing: It is no more the afterthought; mobile clients are on the rise now with the increase in efficiency of mobile applications. SaaS has let mobile computing initiative to increase. But the New Year needs more than just your easy clientele; a need has arisen for sophistication. 2013 requires SaaS to market its unique features through mobile computing. This can be done by incorporating systems beyond legacy software, through mobile computing; ubiquity, collaborative capabilities, services based on locations and cameras. Extending the power further than desktop applications to mobile computing will reap enormous results!

Tools for Big Data Analysis: The vast ranges of 2012 technologies celebrate the association of SaaS with big-data (extraordinary storage and computational capacity). By offering both of the above mentioned features of the services, a SaaS surpasses the expense and losses of big-data, in-house systems that were not feasible for 24×7 running. Instead of trying to sustain losses, in-house systems can be replaced by the storage capacity and the computational elasticity of big-data systems based on SaaS.

Telecommunications: Partnering with telecom carriers that have high ranking infrastructure owing to claims of strength and speed is another prospect for 2013. SaaS providers are highly dependent upon telecommunications despite the condition of the infrastructure even in the U.S. and the unlikeliness of an all fiber-optic system. The insufficiency of telecommunications has been removed as a hindrance as AT&T offers providers with scalable networks dedicated to communications for SaaS. A low latency, high speed network is provided by removing traffic from public networks, although this increases costs, but their significance in sustaining healthcare and manufacturing industries cannot be denied.

SaaS Ecosystem: With the growing demands of users and their increasing need for assurance and information, SaaS services should look for partner service providers. With the on-site service model becoming unfit as the move is towards apps that are mission-critical, SaaS needs to make some improvement. These include organizing, making more efficient and active channels for partnerships between cloud brokers, consultants, WARs and system integrators.

Security: Although on a descent, SaaS corporate security concerns still unravel the causes of unauthorized mobiles and consumer applications that are not secured which has even distracted information technology from the cloud’s emergence. These challenges have posed a greater threat which needs to be eliminated with the help of applications for desktops and mobiles with feature-rich, security features. Consumer applications should be replaced alternatives that are secure and attractive. A collaboration between SaaS and IT in a secure enterprise could become the highlight of 2013!
