Impact across the enterprise8

LoBITWho would you call?SaaS applications power: Internal business processes Sales, Finance, Marketing, HR, Engineering, OperationsExternal, customer-facing interactionsLead forms, partner extranets, customer catalogs, content gatewaysPerformance and availability issues impact:Head of DigitalLine of BusinessITGetting to know your SaaS provider SLAIn any IT infrastructure, unplanned outages can and do occur.Most SaaS vendors only guarantee 99.9% availability or betterHow is downtime defined?What if apps are integrated with each other?Other aspects that may be covered:Security breech notificationData availability on terminationService request responseFail-over/recoveryTrust communicationSystem performanceUnplanned outage details9

Typical SLA guaranteeWhat does 99.9% equate to? Actually a simple calculation:Total number of minutes in a month x (100-uptime%)/100= 30days x 24hours x 60min x (100-99.9)/100= 43200 x (0.1)/100= 43.2 minutes (max downtime).At 99.9%, your website should be down no more than a total of about 43 minutes in a monthWhats 43.2 minutes per month worth to you?Creation of 40 service desk tickets at $22/incident?Loss of 40 lead form submissions at $50/lead?Loss of 40 subscriptions at $500/member?
