Web-delivered solutions that follow a Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery model - where customers subscribe to software and access it from a service provider site rather than get licenses and have software installed on their premises - can offer compelling business value for businesses of any size. Solution developers who develop new solutions or transform existing solutions and service providers who deploy these solutions are faced with several technical challenges. One example is multitenancy, where a single instance of the software, running on a service provider's premises, serves multiple organizations. This paper series describes different patterns to address these challenges, often using Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) techniques. Also learn how IBM software products can help one build and deploy scalable, configurable, and cost-effective multitenant Web-delivered solutions.
