Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings such as GitHub, Google, Dropbox, .. give us access to critical services without having to deal with operations, updates, data retention ….
But SaaS is not for all! Many organizations are prohibited storing data outside their data centers, worried about security or restrained by limited change control!
The solution is an architecture that allows deploying your SaaS offering on-premises which however comes with new challenges such as: how to plan maintenance, proper hardware sizing or configuration. While we have known examples such as AWS Outputs or Google Anthos the fact is that not everyone is Google or Amazon!

Join my session where I share how we at Dynatrace moved from SaaS to a hybrid offering including an on-premises deployment. I discuss my top 3 aspects of a successful managed implementation: pro-active support, automated updates delivery, and zero-configuration approach and how our “Mission Control” takes care of these.
I will further discuss our automated CI/CD delivery that deploys to our customers, how automation takes care of proper configuration and how we deal with security related concerns.
This talk should inspire you how to expand your software offering from SaaS to premises with the lowest total cost of ownership!
