Great article on True SaaS (multitenant, single code line, hosted software) and why enterprises should care about it.  Its a common practice for software vendors with highly successful products to just assume that it can "be SaaS" if we just repackage the solution as hosted.  While this may look "SAAS" and your customers may even like the appearance of a higher level of data security, it has huge trade offs in terms of an enterprises need to manage the solution.  Customers of these type of solutions are tied to higher per user costs, they have to do their own upgrade coordination and scheduling, normally with high up front PS costs, and they suffer less than stellar quality and performance as they scale the solution.  If your in the market for a SaaS solution you should be asking about the delivery model, if your not your doing yourself a disservice.
