A key challenge SaaS providers face is understanding the cost profile of their environment and the customers within it. Measuring the cost of each tenant in the system, understanding cost-effectiveness of product features, and accurately metering the margin in a SaaS solution are examples of abilities that are critical for SaaS success.
