Winning the Cloud Game: Royalty

In my last blog, I talked about how the cloud game comes with a new set of rules software developers need to live by in order to win the game. In this blog, we’ll talk about some of the cards you’ll need to draw to a Royal Flush.

Your Ace in the Hole: Agility

For software companies making the shift to a SaaS model, that ace is agility.

You need to be able to pivot rapidly as your customers’ needs and desires change. A funny thing happens when you make the move from on-premises to SaaS: customer expectations change. They suddenly expect you to move faster and to change more quickly.

To meet this demand, you need to design your product architecture with agility in mind – yours and your customers. That’s your ace in the hole.
