Software As A Service - Skyline

Skyline is a SaaS business model built on the Arigoo Flowtrix infrastructure. It reduces IT costs and empowers today's employees and businesses. Skyline helps organizations like yours deliver Software as a Service (SaaS) using Flowtrix which is a tool that embraces change and is built for quick deployment. Whether it is business-to-business, business-to-consumer or business to employees focused, Arigoo understands the complexities of delivering SaaS in a multi-customer environment. As organizations continue to adopt outsourced models for automating critical business processes, SaaS is becoming more attractive for many different types of service providers as well as independent software vendors (ISVs). Under this model, business software features can be easily enabled or disabled by customers or users based on a specific industry, work environment, or any other criteria.

Through this single-platform supporting multiple applications approach, service providers reduce internal operating costs and help lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for customers. Implementation time is shortened and greater user acceptance is achieved.

However, the concept of SaaS still faces a major challenge of mass adoption as most vendors are using off the shelf hard coded ERP applications in their SaaS offerings. This approach faces major road blocks for two reasons.

 Vendors can only offer standard applications in the traditional areas of HR, Sales or Finance such as employee leave, claim, CRM etc. A customized business application will not fit into the business framework of a typical SaaS model as it will not be scalable for the vendor to provide support when delivered in volume.

 Unless your business processes can be changed to fit into a hard coded application, you will probably need to invest significant money to customize these standard ERPs before you can even start using them on SaaS . This model itself defeats the fundamental advantages of SaaS, which are quick deployment, low upfront investment and lower TCO.

Skyline differs as it is delivered via the Flowtrix platform. This platform enables customization and changes in the business processes to be done very easily and quickly, at a fraction of the cost compared to the changing of code within an ERP. The Software Delivery Life Cycle (SDLC) is significantly shortened because there will be reduced testing required as it will be a mere re-configuration rather than a code change. With this, it translates into faster roll out, lower customization effort/cost and lower TCO in the long run in the overall maintenance for your organization and customers.
