KOMAL GUPTA IS INTO CLOUD COMPUTING
SOFTWARE AS A SERVICE
Software as a Service (SaaS) is a software distribution model. It allows companies to subscribe to software as a service hosted by a provider, rather than having to buy it. For example, Accenture's customers need more clarity on the opportunities and risks of cloud computing and how they can best make use of this service.
In my research, I mapped out what is happening in the SaaS market. I also researched the assessments companies make when they opt for a Software as a Service solution. I now work for Getronics Consulting, an ICT consultancy agency that employs 1,400 professionals. At the moment I am working on a project for KPN, which involves outsourcing application management from The Netherlands to India. My job is to manage that transition. Quite a varied role and a real learning experience!
