Yesterday morning I presented at the Sydney sessions of the Software as a Service (SaaS) seminar series (the sessions also ran in New York, San Jose, Boston, Munich, Düsseldorf and Paris). My session about some of the architectural concepts associated with SaaS (slides here (691 kb)) and was derived from a white paper entitled Architecture Strategies for Catching the Long Tail.
One of the authors of the white paper, Gianpaolo Carraro, a Microsoft Application Architect working in this space, chatted with Diego Dagum about SaaS recently. The transcript of that chat is available at http://msdn.microsoft.com/architecture/default.aspx?pull=/library/en-us/dnbda/html/SaaSChat_MSDN.asp?_r=1
There are a couple of links to blogs in that chat that are worth calling out: Gianpaolo's blog and in particular his note on the SaaS Simple Maturity Model, and the other author of the White Paper, Fred Chong's blog. Subscribed.
BTW, I'll also be presenting this session next Wednesday at the South Coast Chapter of the ACS.
