Common Mistakes by SaaS Companies
Perception On Solution
Assume you are planning to start your own passenger airlines, which one would you pick? Well, isn’t it obvious that A380 is much more scalable, secure, robust and excellent in performance. While both can fly,
Underestimating SaaS Complexity
If you are asked to build a SaaS product, will you not apply the same parameters – scalable, secure, robust and performance; to decide how your SaaS product should be?
SaaS business model requires several technical and SaaS operational building blocks to meet the day to day needs of both your customers as well as support team.
More importantly, there are 9 non-functional requirements that are must for any SaaS product.
Given the time and resource constraints ISVs tend to pay less attention to these building blocks and Non Functional Requirements, and they end up building something petite just like the small aircraft.
SaaS – Non Functional Requirements (NFRs)
Single Tenant Model – Double Edged Sword
Alternatively, some customers tend to make the common SaaS mistake of taking the hosted model route to save cost. But actually they are going to spend more.
In a hosted model you are going to have multiple instances of your product, just like multiple small planes. Imagine starting your own passenger airlines where you allocate one small plane for each passenger.
Just think of the amount of effort and cost involved in maintaining these numerous small planes???
So, what would you do if you want to start your own passenger airlines?
Because every single aspect requires a niche expertise and hence, doing it yourself will take quite a lot of time and can also be a great risk for your business.
