We run a company called Replicated that enables SaaS applications to create an enterprise installable version of their product to be distributed behind the firewall. We’ve built and sold a SaaS company previously. We work closely with many SaaS founders and teams. In order to be successful with the Replicated platform, SaaS companies generally need a baseline of features that enterprise customers want. We've led the charge on much of the content, but we've been lucky to have contributers like the teams at Segment and TIBCO Jaspersoft to contribute to areas where where they're experts.
We're product people. So, we're changing the enterprise software narrative from "how to SELL to the enterprise" to "how to BUILD for the enterprise." Hopefully this site can create a common vernacular for founders, product managers, engineers, sales and customers alike. We know we're not always right... so we open sourced this, you can fork it, create edits, share it with your team and even contribute those back.
You are set to receive an email twice a month containing all the latest contributions to EnterpriseReady.
