隨著「aaS」為基礎的發展模式的日益流行，通訊服務供應商 (CSP) ，迫於需要驗證預計展開雲端的「aaS」的支援功能。
"The use of software-as-a-service- (SaaS-) based models for CSPs' revenue management systems offers several benefits, but a lack of interest from larger CSPs is holding back widespread adoption."
The rising popularity of anything-as-a-service- (XaaS-) based deployment models, driven by implementations in enterprise and retail, has forced communications service providers (CSPs) to closely examine the prospect of deploying their own support functions as a service in the cloud.
SaaS-based models offer CSPs many advantages, but the replacement of complex billing systems with a SaaS-based model can also be substantially disruptive to CSPs' operations. From a vendor perspective, SaaS-based models offer advantages such as seamless upgrades and a stabilised revenue stream. However, the shift away from a capex-heavy model towards standardised, cloud-based platforms will lead to a substantial drop in revenue in the short term.
