You want to start selling your software as a service, and you have chosen to target the Windows Azure platform for it. Good! You started with the right foot!
However, this is just the first step for moving from traditional, on-premises software to a full subscription model. How do you plan to onboard your customers, create customized application instances on the fly, handle multi-tenancy, authenticate and authorize users and organizations, automate payment, all the while attaining full web scale?
We are here to help.
From this page you can access FabrikamShipping SaaS, a full end to end sample scenario which demonstrates how to use the Windows Azure platform for exposing an application as a service.
We developed this demo just as you would: we had an existing on-premises sample, FabrikamShipping, and we wanted to see what it would take to transform it in a full subscription based solution. The demo you see here is the result of that investigation.
We hope you'll find this sample useful! Have fun, but please always remember: THIS IS JUST A DEMO. It will be occasionally down, and we will update it as we go.
