Are you a product company wondering what it would take to move to the new cloud and as-a-service model? Over the last few years WSO2 has been going through that transition and in this talk we will share our experience and answer the following questions:

  • Why bother? What makes as-a-service model attractive?
  • What makes the model different for engineering, sales, pre-sales, support, finance, and business reporting teams?
  • What is some practical advice on starting the cloud business within a software company and what lessons have we learned?
