Dimension Data and Montclare will teach attendees about building an optimal SaaS business model, how organizations can adopt SaaS to best achieve business goals and will offer real-world examples of successful transition stories. The events will also convey the insights needed to help attendees build a more successful SaaS business by covering the advantages and challenges of switching to a new business model that is required to effectively deliver SaaS solutions.

"Montclare and Dimension Data have worked together with a number of ISVs to optimize everything from their business model, product and pricing mix, through to application architectures and operational best practices for software delivery," said Jason Cumberland, vice president of SaaS Solutions at Dimension Data's ITaaS Unit.
