Running a software as a service (SaaS) business is hard: you need to develop and evolve a stellar software product, that elegantly and intuitively, dare I say 'auto-magically' solves pressing problems for your customers. You need to attract new customers, bring them onboard and hook them for life, you need to address support issues.

As a SaaS provider, are you at your wits' end when it comes to pricing your SaaS product? How much can you ask for? And will the price you apply cover the costs enough to leave you with a healthy margin? You'll find out the answer to this and many other questions during two boot camp sessions that Sirris is organising in September.

After international players such as Amazon, Rackspace, IBM and CSC, we are now focusing on domestic contributors for our fifth and final workshop in the series of workshops "Focus on your business, leave your IT infrastructure to the cloud". Curious as to how IaaS Belgian providers find solutions? Come to our last IaaS workshop on 11 February and ask the experts yourself!

This time the leader in cloud transformation CSC will unveil their insights about what clients believe is the most important in the development of a successful corporate strategy for cloud transformation. If you are wondering what is this global player’s approach and what this could mean for your business, come and ask your questions directly to the company experts themselves.

In a previous post, I wondered why nobody had come up with a "universal" way to visualise SaaS/Cloud architectures. In this blog post, I'll give it a very first try, using an example loosely based upon a project I'm working on.

Last week I attended VelocityConf Europe, an international conference dedicated to building a stronger and faster web. With speakers from Google, Facebook, Twitter, the BBC and many others, the conference promised to be inspiring. Here are my takeaways after 2 days of awesomeness: Faster is (much) better Mobile, mobile, mobile Responsive design to the rescue Mobile + fast = difficult We are not there yet, but help is on the way Misc

A few times now, customers have asked me to brainstorm with them on the software architecture for their SaaS product. It is a typical question when there are issues with system scalability or performance, or when maintainability or serviceability leaves much to be desired.

Amazon is coming to Belgium to unveil its view of IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service). Do you wonder what the approach of this global player is? Do you want to know what this means concretely for you? Then come and ask your questions directly to the company’s experts!

Meet the major players in the Cloud during five breakfast sessions on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Once a month Sirris and Agoria will invite an IaaS provider to whom you can ask all your questions, even the technical ones. We will kick off these sessions on October 15 with Amazon. The presentations will be given in English.
