Can we architect solution for cloud based SaaS using existing products the way we architect solution for an enterprise? - are the typical questions that are examined in this session. One part of the answer is not all existing software is fully ready for cloud. If so what are the parameters that one will use to measure whether a given software product is fully cloud ready or not. Once it is fully cloud ready, then architecting a cloud based SaaS solution using that product is a different next game. Or architecting solutions using not-cloud ready or semi-cloud ready product is also a different game
