In addition to providing an analysis of SaaS perceptions and planned adoption, specifically in HR, Guptill will explore how SaaS maps to business priorities and HR's key reasons for selecting SaaS. Kristick will discuss specific criteria businesses should consider when choosing a SaaS solution provider and, in turn, the capabilities a provider should deliver in order to guarantee success. The webinar will also address the critical role "Service" plays in the successful delivery of Software-as-a-Service, which according to Saugatuck's research, is the most important business consideration when selecting a SaaS or cloud-based solution provider. Guptill and Kristick will offer guidance for businesses looking to evaluate the "Service" component of SaaS solutions, including implementation support, commitment to customer success, solution provider experience and track record with customers.

During the daylong virtual conference, InformationWeek editors and Cloud Connect leaders will participate in several webinars, presenting a multi-dimensional view of the cloud, exploring its popularity and potential and discussing the advantages businesses are reaping from their cloud-based and virtualized environments.
