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.

En tant que fournisseur SaaS, vous êtes désemparé face à la question de la fixation du prix de votre produit ? Combien pouvez-vous demander ? Le prix fixé sera-t-il suffisant pour couvrir les frais et dégager une marge confortable ? Vous connaîtrez la réponse à ces questions et à bien d’autres encore en participant aux deux sessions du Bootcamp organisé par Sirris en septembre.

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!

Cette fois, c’est au tour de CSC, leader dans la transformation vers le cloud, de venir vous dévoiler ce que les clients considèrent comme le plus important dans le développement d’une stratégie d’entreprise efficace pour opérer votre transformation vers le cloud. Vous vous demandez quelle est l’approche de cet acteur mondial ? Et vous voudriez savoir ce qu’elle pourrait apporter concrètement à votre entreprise ? Posez vos questions directement à des experts de l’entreprise même !

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.
