On Demand/SaaS and New Year’s

New Year’s always brings back memories of applying the old “LCPs” (Legal Change Packages) to R/3. LCPs are required to ensure HR systems reflect the latest legislation or administrative rulings for the various jurisdictions that the HR system covered. Not exactly a value-added activity, as needed as it was.

This type of content update is exactly where SaaS shines. The single code base justification for SaaS gets a lot of play, but I’ve always liked the single content base angle better. This angle is relevant in HCM and GRC solutions (e.g., COSO, COBIT updates), other regulatory environments (banking), and enabling methods and tools (e.g., implementation methodologies created, maintained, and distributed via wiki).
