Tenant Sub Tenant Hierarchy And Tenant Aware Applications

Tenant Sub Tenant Hierarchy and Tenant Aware Applications

In Multi-tenant SaaS applications, the word tenant is often assumed to mean a customer organization.But it need not be the only use case. For a BPO’s internal application, used by different verticals, each tenant can be one vertical, for which the application is configured differently. For a BFSI (Banking / Finance / Securities / Investment) organization offering a market facing application, the tenant could mean one of the various channels (internal and external) that sell their products. For an ISV with a global network of distributors and resellers, providing solutions to “Retail chains” the tenant could mean any and all of the following: A National Distributor, A Reseller, A Retail chain owner (Corporate office) and a particular retail store.

Non Functional Requirements – Check List

Non Functional Requirements – Check list

An application that addresses a diverse set of stakeholders and multiple levels of user groups is more complicated and technically challenging than an application that is focused on a niche homogenous user base. The Non functional requirements (NFRs) of such applications are hence very critical and important. Defining the NFRs independent of the functional requirements has many benefits. It leads to a focused effort on NFRs, a robust architectural framework, engineering excellence and consistency. The NFR stack when implemented as a loosely coupled framework, could also become a common stack for multiple applications / products, resulting in significant reduction in cost of development, support and maintenance (TCO).

Tenant Based Indexing

Tenant Based Indexing

A true Multi tenant SaaS application uses shared database with shared schema to achieve better cost efficiency and maintainability. But over a period of time when the application grows with 100s, or 1000s of tenants, the data stored in the database might also grow exponentially, due to which the application’s performance (while fetching the data) may slow down. Indexing the data might be a good option to improve the speed but it is also resource intensive. So what can we do to enhance the performance?
