From a business perspective, switching from buying software to getting it on a subscription basis makes a lot of sense, allowing your organization to remain up-to-date with applications and ensuring you don’t pay out for services you won’t use. However, as companies start switching mission-critical services over to a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, the capacity for things to go wrong becomes magnified and if you aren’t adequately prepared for the impact on your network, the promised savings could result in expensive consequences. This white paper looks at how to mitigate the risks of Software-as-a-Service to deliver your customers the service they expect.
