− Its why SaaS has been adopted faster than PaaS / IaaS
In general, distinctly defining a boundary is difficult and prone to
− Interoperability and shared services are inevitable such as:
Identity management federation or integration
Boundary management (TIC Integration etc.)
License management
Security controls and requirements (Continuous monitoring)

− …while enhancing your service capabilities AND improving your
security posture AND reducing your cost
