I just came back from a long vacation, and before that I was cranking on the two SaaS architecture papers that are now available here:
I have been receiving readers’ feedback on those papers and the comments have been excellent. Here’s a quote from a customer in Australia on the multi-tenant data architecture paper:
“Thanks for a great article. It’s was nice to see that the system that we have followed for the last 6 years was the right way to go and with us wanting to move to the next level, the encryption system to give protection and horizontal partitioning was a nice touch which I have been looking for.”
It’s always great to have real world practitioners’ validation on our architecture guidance.
A few topics are on my radar for the next few papers:
Multi-tenant workflow architecture
Using multi-tenant data models in UI presentation and business logic
Multi-tenant UI architecture
SaaS and the enterprise: value propositions, challenges and solutions
I would love to hear and include war stories from the seasoned architects out there.
