ISV’s Perspective on Infrastructure, Platform, Technology and Back-end Integration

An ISV instead of trying to focus on developing everything  from scratch can take advantage of the Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service being offered by different companies.  SaaS requires an architecture that can support peak usage demands and process millions and millions of transactions in a secure and reliable environment.

Choosing the right technology is a key to user adoption. Many transitioning ISV’s choose a well known technology stack to keep away from risks due to obsoleteness.

It is very essential for an enterprise SaaS application to be able to integrate with other applications. With SaaS not only does the core application need to function, but it needs to function in conjunction with other systems. Following a centralized approach for code management and focusing on open standards  helps avoid integration problems.
