Today more and more organizations show their preference for cloud-based solutions, causing many to embrace SaaS providers over their traditional ISV’s. However, some companies still struggle with this transition, as it includes many changes within the business and development plan, from pricing to support and new sales models.
To stay competitive in dynamic business models today, independent software vendors must go further their comfort zone – from application development to openly embracing new sales models. There are a few key challenges to overcome.
