Abstract

Software as a Service (SaaS) is often sold to businesses as a way for the business to get value from software without all of the issues associated with owning the software. But just because you don't own the software, have it installed on a server, or know the person responsible for keeping it running doesn't mean that it isn't important to your business. When things go wrong with a SaaS solution you might be wishing you could walk down the hall and yell at the person responsible for keeping that software running. Since you can't do that you might want to try some of the ideas from this session to help you out before, during, and after an incident to save your sanity and to keep your business running.
