Independent software vendors (ISVs) are at the nucleus of explosive growth in cloud services and the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) market. The volume of ISV products and services sold for and through cloud platforms is increasing exponentially and IDC predicts that by 2021, 70% of new enterprise applications will be developed as cloud-native. Leading cloud services providers are also offering next-gen cloud platform native services such as DevOps, Infrastructure as a code, microservices and containerization-based architecture for ISV partners. Container technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes are expected to experience the fastest growth in contrast with other cloud-enabling technologies, with an estimated CAGR of 40% through 2020.

Embracing cloud services allows ISV partners to focus on their core goals of developing and delivering applications; and improving their cloud platform provider. More importantly, these costs can be aligned to usage and revenue for the ISV partner.With a Managed Services the cloud is undisputedly the future for ISV partners, it is far from being a panacea.

Explore Cloud Advantages for ISV partners

What keeps ISVs from crafting a winning cloud strategy

Most ISV partners are familiar with the traditional on-premise model and hesitant to change.To further complicate matters, customers’ expectations from Independent SoftwareVendors are changing radically.While in the past, delivering quality functioning software was an ISV’s only responsibility, today customers expect them to serve the role of an end-to-end vendor who assumes responsibility of software, IT and datacenter infrastructure, security, compliance, and Managed Services.The cloud does pave the way to address the changing market and customer dynamics but multiple challenges stand in the way for Independent Software Vendors:

Multi country data residency laws and other stringent local regulatory compliances that make it time consuming and expensive to store data. Independent SoftwareVendors also have to ensure compliance with varying data localization norms for addressing global customers

Security Alliance, countries (IRAP, Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority, GDPR, RBI, FedRamp, etc.) and global standards (ISO 27001, ISO 27017, ISO 27018, etc.)

Demand for mobile versions of software solutions with single SLA from application to infrastructure

Deciding which cloud platform to adopt – public, private or hybrid and whether to go for a single or multiple cloud services providers

Structuring SLAs and ensuring adherence with multiple partners

Disruption for traditional ISVs

Heavy upfront investments in multi-cloud skill sets and technologies for Devops, Managed Services, and next-gen cloud services
