ISV Community Event
Welcome to the third virtual community event for software companies to hear about collaboration models and tools for the software service business (SaaS). We'll review Microsoft's different levels of collaboration with software houses and services to increase and speed up your customer acquisition.
SaaS applications are at the heart of the organization's software strategy, and previously self-hosted software is primarily replaced by new SaaS services. Traditional production and distribution is already in a minority in new or substitution procurement. In 2020 ,74% of business customers globally prefer the SaaS model when acquiring business applications. In 2013, the corresponding figure was 41%, so the trend is clear. Cloud platforms have contributed to this trend. Finnish ISV companies have been and will be the pioneers of this trend. Now is an excellent opportunity to hear from the world 's leading and most experienced professionals how to take advantage of this trend.
To this breakthrough, we offer tools and services to partners to ensure and grow future business. In this session we go a bit deeper to technologies and tools that will help you in this journey. Please note that the event is held in Finnish.
