Leading Industry Expert to Help Organizations Quantify the ROI of SaaS

Upcoming Plateau Systems' Webinar Featuring Forrester Research Analyst Liz Herbert Will Discuss How Organizations Can Calculate ROI to Determine if SaaS Is Right for Their Organization

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - February 16, 2010) - Plateau Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-class SaaS solutions for talent management, today announced that registration is open for its February 23, 2010 Webinar titled "The ROI of Software-As-A-Service" featuring Liz Herbert, a senior analyst covering SaaS at Forrester Research.

Over the past five years, organizations have increasingly recognized the advantages and financial benefits of the software-as-a-service (SaaS) deployment model. A cost-effective alternative to on-premise software due to its lower up-front implementation costs, faster deployment and upgrade cycles, and pay-as-you-go pricing, SaaS appears to be software's silver bullet, at least in the short term. However, as SaaS continues to move into a broader range of applications and into larger, more strategic deployments, organizations are seeking to quantify the overall benefits of this model. Many are questioning the long-term economics of SaaS, trying to determine if the rent-versus-own model necessarily has a cost crossover point and which applications deliver greater ROI when delivered as SaaS.

In its recent "The ROI of Software-As-A-Service" research report, Forrester examined client decisions across a range of SaaS use cases and found that SaaS-based human resources applications, in particular, yielded significant ROI, with payback in 12-24 months.

During this interactive Webinar, Liz Herbert will discuss key findings from Forrester's research, including key customer benefits and risk analysis for determining ROI. Attend this free one hour webinar to learn how your organization can achieve a higher ROI by using a SaaS Solution. Webinar attendees will also receive a complimentary copy of Forrester's "The ROI of Software-As-A-Service" research.
