Software as a Service is here to stay – It’s the sector that’s predicted to hit well over $600 billion in global value by 2023 (FinancesOnline). Let’s recap – SaaS is the prime method of software delivery, where software and applications are hosted remotely via a vendor.

The media and entertainment industry is in an exciting period of transformation and innovation, and Signiant is thrilled to be in the midst of it. Nowhere was this energy more apparent than at this year’s IBC conference, where we had the opportunity to speak with a wide range of organizations, vendors, and thought leaders to better understand where M&E businesses are at, where they’re going, and what they need.
Now with IBC 2019 in the rearview mirror, we’ve been reflecting on everything we’ve learned, and Jon Finegold, Signiant’s CMO, has taken the time to share his experience from the conference, and how that might affect Signiant as we charge toward 2020.

SaaS connects vendors and customers in a long-term relationship that begins with onboarding, thrives through superb customer support and DevOps, and grows with ongoing product improvements rooted in feedback from customers. Entering into a partnership with a SaaS vendor that has a high-level commitment to services can provide enormous advantages to customers. Since the software vendor is responsible for operation of the cloud environment, it removes the burden of procuring, managing and maintaining on-premises infrastructure, while automatically providing the latest product releases without impacting customizations. Well-executed services also improve the usability of products over time, because they allow vendors the opportunity to get invaluable feedback from customers on an ongoing basis.
