SaaS Application Development 

For a business to flourish, you need a complete product that really works. User expectations from products are pretty high and hence you need a top SaaS development company. A SaaS product is entirely cloud-based and has to scale up and down as per usage. Other aspects of SaaS software development are continuous enhancements, version upgrades and security. Hence, the SaaS development team has to keep these aspects in mind when architecting and coding a SaaS platform.

Why Does SaaS Product Development Need A Specialist?

01

Continuous Upgrade And Deployment

At Mindbowser, we help build a Data Science plan for SaaS companies to develop solutions backed with DevOps that provide continuous integration and a continuous deployment pipeline along with automated testing. These practices are vital for companies to maintain a competitive advantage. Through continuous integrations, we develop, test, and deploy code in numerous environments. By doing so, we get feedback rapidly and problems can be identified when they occur. Changes are not deployed until they are tested repeatedly. This early step in a CI/CD pipeline helps ascertain issues quickly.

02

Scaling Up

As the product reaches critical mass, it gets a sudden inflow of users and a need for highly complex computation. Your SaaS product has to be scalable since you cannot plan for growth without it. If you keep acquiring more customers while the product performance worsens, you will ultimately lose them. When you proactively plan to scale your product, it will function properly even after you expand your app functionality and customer base substantially, which will enhance your revenue.

03

Management Of Subscription Lifecycle

SaaS products run on monthly cycles and hence the traffic and nature of software usage can vary accordingly. Ideally, a subscription lifecycle should not end when a subscription expires. When a customer aims to grow by upgrading or simply renewing their subscription and receives any updates, the cycle goes on. A subscription lifecycle playbook provides more than a blueprint to retain customers. It acts as a training tool and a source of performance measurement.

04

Iterative Development

SaaS software development requires continuous testing and changes as versions continue to evolve. During the first iteration, the core feature set is created centred around the chosen architecture. Subsequently, new updates, improvements, and functionalities are integrated into that core. The extent of each iteration that follows is based on market feedback and continues to evolve.

05

High Security

The security of a SaaS platform is usually the development team’s onus rather than the end-users. Hence, SaaS platforms have to follow thorough security and compliance strategy. Data must be encrypted, stored with multiple backups and available with 99.99% SLAs.

06

Multi-tenant Architecture

Through multi-tenancy, your product can run several independent instances of the software tenants using a scalable and resilient architecture in a single ecosystem. The fundamental infrastructure is entirely shared and includes integrated services. Through the adoption of multi-tenant architecture, SaaS application development companies benefit from building a single source of trust, reduction of server infrastructure costs and better performance

SaaS Product Development Process

SaaS product development involves a balance of good ideas, hard work, a pragmatic approach combined with idealistic thinking, and great organization. A SaaS product development process involves the following steps:

Undertaking A Thorough Market Analysis

Extensive research before starting the development work provides several ideas to produce leads that ensure product success after completion.

Discussing SaaS Requirements With All Stakeholders

Based on customers’ requirements, discuss how your software could be adjusted to specific needs or combined with existing tools.

Defining The Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

It refers to the fundamental features that produce quick value to users with reduced costs.

Choosing An Appropriate Pricing Model

This distinguishes you from your rivals as it classifies your product cost as per the customer’s usage and affordability.

Understanding The Technical Aspects

This is the step that will determine how the software will be developed and the decision must be made with MVP and keeping in mind the long-term plans.

Defining The Various Features & Functionalities

The features & functionalities brought in must satisfy the requirements of your customers and must be unique from your rivals.

Knowing Your Budget

It is important to make budget allocations with care while factoring in any potential challenges and setbacks that could burden your finances.

Launching The Prototype & Getting Feedback

The final step involves the pre-launch testing of the product and getting feedback from the customer on user experience, features, and user design.
