Software as a Service (SaaS) applications are growing exponentially. Businesses in nearly every sector across the world are discovering the advantages of SaaS over traditional on-premise solutions—faster time-to-deployment, lower capital costs and reduced demand on IT resources. And, increasingly, many organizations are seeking comprehensive, transformational solutions that provide even greater business benefits.
At the same time, as the cloud matures, its complexities evolve. Organizations need to address growing challenges such as:
Taking advantage of the growing SaaS ecosystem.
Fostering sustained innovation and rapid adoption .
Achieving economies of scale.
Developing new operating, security and governance models.
Instilling the concept of agility across the organization.
Incorporating social and mobile technologies into their solutions.
As a leader in deploying SaaS solutions, Accenture understands the importance of business challenges associated with cloud technologies. We have been designing and implementing SaaS-based solutions across hundreds of organizations for almost a decade, and have more than 3,800 skilled professionals with SaaS experience.
Industry analysts consistently recognize us as a leader in cloud and SaaS. As a result, we have developed deep insights into products from leading SaaS vendors such as Apttus, Microsoft, Oracle, NetSuite, Salesforce.com, SAP, Workday and Zuora.
Accenture has channeled these insights and launched the Accenture Innovation Center for Cloud in San Jose, Calif. to help organizations explore both the short- and long-term opportunities to gain greater business value from SaaS. With its specific focus on SaaS, this new innovation center gives organizations access to Accenture’s SaaS leadership.
