Great read Chris for an IT novice like myself. I've also noticed a lot of business services shifting away from hardware and towards SaaS. It seems sensible that there's a shift towards scalability and flexible pricing for processes that are too expensive to do in house.

Very well written article, Chris. We have a variation in the SaaS implementation wherein the service is hosted in our data centre for security reasons. The challenges we encounter are mainly around the supportability (i)compatability with the infra in the data centre requiring us to do extensive testing for upgrades (ii) lack of adequate logging when investigating situations end to end involving internal apps and SaaS app. These factors should also be borne in mind to make SaaS work better for the organisation.
