Pricing & Packaging - What the best SaaS companies get right about them? with Adil Aijaz
SaaS for Developers
In the three years spanning 2018–2020, at least thirty-nine SaaS companies filed for IPO. These companies are the top 1% of SaaS companies. In this talk, I will cover the common GTM, pricing, and packaging strategies used by these companies, emphasizing developer-focused SaaS IPOs. If you are an entrepreneur or an executive at an early-stage startup (seed - Series B), this talk will be valuable for you. About Adil Aijaz, in his own words: I am a data scientist by education, engineering by training. After building data products at Yahoo!, LinkedIn, and RelateIQ, I founded Split Software, a feature flagging and experimentation company that helps engineering teams iterate faster and safer. I served as Split’s CEO for five years, taking it from zero to hundreds of customers. This transition from engineer to entrepreneur taught me a lot about business and SaaS. I write about building SaaS businesses at Medium. https://adilaijaz.medium.com/ Interested in more SaaS content? Join our Slack: https://saas-community.github.io/
Adil Aijaz of Split Software Talks Agile Deployment
The New Stack Podcast
Building software at scale and at velocity requires a great deal of infrastructure, process, and management. While some companies like Facebook and Google may make it seem like CI/CD is easy to build, in reality, both of these companies have spent billions of dollars optimizing their build pipelines and enabling developers to be more productive by removing barriers in the build/test/fix feedback loop.For the rest of us, there are many ways to help improve a CI/CD process that don't actually require writing your own build system, or spending $1 billion to make PHP compile to C++, as Facebook once did. Instead, there are numerous vendors, open source projects, and CI/CD gurus out there to help your team get from writing code to deploying it to production much faster.One company aimed at helping solve the CI/CD speed-up problem is Split Software. Adil Aijaz is the CEO and co-founder of Split, and he sat down with us to discuss the current state of agile deployment in the enterprise world.
