Analytics and metrics are essential to the success of SaaS organizations. Successful SaaS providers rely heavily on having their finger on the pulse of tenant consumption and usage activity. This data is used across the SaaS organization, informing the business, product, architecture, and operational strategy of SaaS organizations. AWS and APN Partners provide a rich collection of services and tools that can support the aggregation and analysis of this data.
Optimizing SaaS Solutions for AWS
The adoption of SaaS and a shared multi-tenant infrastructure brings a unique set of challenges that require developers to find new and creative ways to optimize their SaaS applications. In this video, we will explore a collection of strategies that can be leveraged to increase the performance, flexibility, and agility of SaaS environments. You will learn how to identify areas where services, tools, and design strategies can be combined to enrich the agility of your SaaS architecture.
Optimizing SaaS Tenant Workflows & Costs
Designing robust software as a service (SaaS) solutions often requires developers to find new and creative strategies for optimizing their applications. The emphasis in this blog post is on SaaS-specific optimizations that address the complexities introduced by a diverse set of tenants who might be imposing continually evolving loads on your system. Our goal is to identify strategies for reacting and responding to tenant dynamics in real time. AWS offers SaaS developers a rich collection of services that can be applied in a number of different permutations to help optimize a multi-tenant environment. These services represent the dials and knobs that can be leveraged to refine the performance and general profile of your SaaS offering. In this discussion, we will illustrate a few of these models to give you a better sense of what’s possible.
SaaS Metrics: The Ultimate View of Tenant Consumption
Understanding the patterns for tenant consumption provides both business and technical teams the data they need to make sound decisions about product packaging, metering, and tiering. Of course, building a robust model for analyzing and attributing tenant consumption can be tricky. In this session, we look at specific strategies for capturing, aggregating, and associating consumption with tenants in a multitenant, shared resource model. We touch on common patterns and strategies that are used to instrument and publish metrics spanning compute, storage, and so on. We also look at how tools and models that can be used to correlate consumption with AWS spend.
SaaS Analytics: What Metrics Should I Be Capturing?
Metrics are foundational to SaaS. As your pour tenants into a multi-tenant environment, you must have your finger on the pulse of how tenants are using your system, how they're consuming resources, which features they're using, how they are impacting cost, and how quickly new customers are achieving value. These are amongst a few samples of the many metrics-driven decisions that are fundamental to the business, operational, architectural, and agility goals of SaaS providers. In this webinar, we will explore common SaaS metrics, how they captured and aggregated, and how they are frequently applied across a SaaS business. The goal is to blend the technical and business importance of metrics and illustrate how these metrics can be instrumented into your SaaS environment.
