Software as a Service (SaaS) is a delivery model in which software is provided over the internet, on a subscription basis, rather than as a product installed on companies' own computers. SaaS has its roots in the late 1990s with early adopters such as Salesforce.com, but it wasn't until the mid-2000s that SaaS started to gain widespread adoption. In the following decades, the growth of cloud computing and the increasing availability of high-speed internet made SaaS a more viable option for businesses of all sizes.
Today, SaaS is a multi-billion dollar industry, the fastest growing business model, and is a major driver of innovation in the software industry. Analytics firm Statista estimates that the SaaS market is worth approximately 146 billion in U.S. dollars and estimated to reach 195 billion U.S. dollars by 2023.
Consumption, usage and recurring revenue models are very popular in today’s business climate. To be successful, these business models require integration and coordination among your key business systems from the front-end to the back-end. Before rolling out these revenue models, it is often useful to take a step back and reimagine how these revenue models, business strategies, and business systems should all be aligned and deployed for the best results.
In 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) announced the release of new accounting standards, ASC 842 and IFRS 16, that redefined how organizations must account for leases.
These new leasing standards represent more than just an accounting change, with far-reaching and profound implications on lease/buy decisions, internal process coordination and financial reporting. Effective lease management must go beyond a one-time compliance perspective by enabling both ongoing management of lease changes and seamless integration with associated finance processes.
