To kick off a month of in-depth and up-to-date features on Software-as-a-Service, TechRepublic is offering a free ebook for download (PDF format), The Executive's Guide to Best Practices in SaaS and the Cloud.
Whether you are building a business case for SaaS, looking for advice on cloud strategies, or want to know more about what pitfalls to avoid, the ebook will provide advice and tips in all those areas and more.
Watch this blog for continuing SaaS coverage and don't miss some of the special reports from our writers on ZDNet as well. For example, one of the thorniest issues that always comes up in debates about cloud strategies is that of compliance with local and regional laws regarding data. Our writers have compiled reports on regulatory and compliance concerns for the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Australia:
- US: (Thoran Rodrigues) What US businesses should know about compliance and regulatory issues before adopting a cloud strategy
- Europe: (Nick Heath) SaaS and EU legislation: What you need to know
- Asia: (Jamie Yap) Local, vertical laws critical in SaaS adoption
- Australia: (Michael Lee) What Australian businesses need to know about cloud compliance
These reports and more can be found on the Special Report page for both TechRepublic and ZDNet, "Cloud: How to do SaaS right."
