  • - Business Value

    Pattern Overview


    SaaS-Cockpit™ provides a set of extensible administration and management capabilities necessary to provision tenants, monitor SaaS applications, and enables other features that are needed in a SaaS application. Provisioning and Configuration - facilities to create new Tenants and assign Tenant Administrators that have the privileges to create users, configure access, and manage all tenant specific configuration options. Performance Monitoring - real-time user monitoring capabilities, dashboards, and management reports to provide insight and alerts on the operational state of the application. Billing Integration - facilities for reporting or exporting billing information gathered by the system. Subscription Management - essential capabilities to manage tenants and their subscriptions, including customized ones.

    Business Case

    SaaS-Cockpit™ can be used to accelerate the timeline of a transformation to the SaaS business model. By enabling a path to SaaS for an organization that includes the ability to start providing SaaS with isolated application instances for each tenant, and continue to offer the same consistent operations and management capabilities for the tenants when a multi-tenant solution is offered, the SaaS-Cockpit™ provides a smooth SaaS transformation pathway. SaaS providers can go to market with their traditional software architecture, and then introduce a more efficient multi-tenant architecture when it becomes economically attractive to do so, thus optimizing the relevant business considerations at the appropriate time in the SaaS transformation lifecycle. By having the capability to operate and manage the SaaS offering as a collection of cloud instances which are isolated for each tenant or for a multi-tenant application supporting many tenants, the SaaS provider can manage all their customers as tenants in a consistent manner and lower their cost of service delivery. Having Saas-Cockpit™ as a consistent common infrastructure for operations and management, the SaaS provider can enable new business insights by analysis of the meta-data about their customer base. SaaS-Cockpit™ can also enable expansion into new markets through its support of any number of applications and instances on one or more clouds. This can enable local markets to be served by locally optimized instances, or to meet privacy or performance requirements, while providing the centralized, consistent operational view of the total SaaS business.

    Business Problem

    SaaS-Cockpit™ solves the problem of having a capable and robust application that can perform as the operations and management platform for a SaaS business. SaaS-Cockpit™ can be used to to transform from the traditional to the SaaS business model by providing a capability to deliver SaaS as an isolated instance per tenant as a first step, and then as a multi-tenant solution to decrease costs, creating a path to efficiency for SaaS providers.
