What is Microsoft’s SaaS Maturity Model?

Microsoft’s SaaS maturity model was proposed by Microsoft in the year 2006. It provides a framework for accessing SaaS products and how a SaaS solution is delivered to the end users. It also analyzes a SaaS solution’s maturity based on three key aspects: scalability, multi-tenancy and configurability.

The SaaS maturity model is divided into four levels of development.

1.Single-Tenant, Custom Instances

2. Single-Tenant, Configurable Instances

3. Multi-Tenant, Configurable

4. Multi-Tenant Configurable & Scalable.
