To SaaS Or Not To SaaS?

This was asked in a recent Wired Cloudline Blog Post. Why to subscribe to a Software-as-a-server?
Six reasons are discussed, referring to Zilliant …

  • Total cost of ownership
  • Resource cost
  • Time to value and ease of implementation 
  • Access to innovation
  • Ability to try before you buy
  • Ongoing vendor accountability and engagement 
I could summarize: you have real options - the right to, say, invest into the expansion of the firm's  development systems, or alternatively reduce it ... call or put as you need. Not surprisingly there is an analogy between the modeling of real and financial options.
