|Fig 1: Mode 1 vs. Mode 2 - two required elements for growth and sustainability|
The one key challenge that remains is the transition to Mode 1 from the Mode 2 that the technology team will be responsible for. In simple words, managing the transition from experimentation and the exploration phase to adopting the SaaS application as one of the long-term enterprise application and integrating it with the rest of the enterprise application set.
The technology leadership team should plan and prepare for the SaaS integration with the rest of the enterprise to make the transition from Mode 2 to Mode 1 smooth and predictable. You will need a sound middleware integration strategy that is built for the world of Hybrid Cloud and SaaS utilizing advancement in the technology like Microservices and Docker.
