    It’s completely likely to achieve true HRM SaaS software that’s fruitless, expendable, badly architected, built on old fashioned or just plain wrong object models.

    It just boils down to picking the right vendor/product with which to partner.

    Easy said than done.

    Thanks for the interesting read Naomi

    You are so right. Just meeting my (or anyone else’s) definition of SaaS says nothing about underlying software quality, robustness, elegance, fitness for purpose, etc. etc. And I’ve certainly seen a lot of that. If you go over to my primary blog,, you’ll find my now dated thoughts on SaaS InFullBloom. One goal for 2014 is to update completely and expand my posts on that topic.
