Executing a successful transition to SaaS
How do I begin my SaaS transition?
You’ve done all the preparation, now it’s time to start executing your transformation. The first step is to clearly define your project timeline and the future state of your Council on SaaS including key risks, mitigation strategies, roles and responsibilities. Defining this at the outset will enable you to maximise adoption and minimise disruption.

How long should a SaaS transition take?
For a council that is configured with OneCouncil, it takes approximately 16 weeks, with approximately 40 - 50 working days allocated to User Acceptance Testing (UAT) in a test environment with Council data.
Why is it important to move to SaaS first?
Management of an enterprise software solution isn’t a core business objective for your Council – so why make that a focus? Moving to SaaS is a logical step for Councils that are serious about operating efficiently and securely in the 21st century and beyond.
SaaS simplifies and stabilises the platform, brings Council up-to-date on the latest release, and accelerates time to value based on ongoing transformation and modernization as new enhancements are released annually.
Team members can tap into a modern user interface on any device, anywhere, at any time and collaborate on the go. TechnologyOne’s SaaS Platform offers the highest level of security, always-on reliability and the opportunity to scale usage up-or-down to suit your business’ needs. Knowing that system upgrades, data security and performance are taken care of, means you can concentrate on your core business and your customers.

In a successful transition, Council should be able to maintain day-to-day operations with minimum and preferably no disruption.
