The SaaS market is growing five times faster than on-premises. It’s time to redefine your business and take advantage of the SaaS marketplace.
Cloud-based solutions offer functionality and efficiencies that on-premises solutions just can’t match—the actions of today’s business leaders and analysts make that clear. According to a recent IDC report, from 2015-2016 there was a 137% increase in organization adoption and growth rates as much as 12 times higher for cloud vendors than traditional software vendors.
While it’s clear that the cloud presents a tremendous opportunity for growth, it may be less clear how it applies to your business. How can you leverage your expertise as an applications solution provider in the SaaS marketplace? The good news is that virtually every industry can benefit from a successful SaaS deployment—even, for example, the traditionally risk-averse transportation industry.
Carrier Logistics Inc (CLI) is a Progress 2015 SaaS Excellence Partner for a reason. CLI has been serving the transportation industry for over 40 years, and currently provides transportation management and logistics software. After a successful SaaS deployment, their business is 90% SaaS solutions, and they are well positioned to capture the explosive growth in that market.
Redefining your business takes thoughtful planning and execution, and this journey taught Carrier Logistics a number of lessons and best practices. In an on-demand webinar, Ken Weinberg, Vice President of Sales at Carrier Logistics, shares their SaaS journey in more detail.
Today’s business climate requires always-on services with 24/7 access from any device—not just for consumer-driven apps but in the B2B market as well. As IT budgets shrink while the demand for innovation increases, the cloud has become a crucial component of business transformation.
Customers are increasingly looking to cloud solutions for their versatility and ease-of-use. Entering the SaaS market will not only open your business to an entire new market of potential customers, but it will also help make sure you retain the ones you already have.
