Configuration of Multi-Tenant Applications


Article Preview

SaaS (Software as a Service) application mode came into being along with the expansion and convenient of the network platform, and its core lies in Multi-Tenant (multi-tenant) application. Multi-Tenant Application under the SaaS model makes software applications efficient and convenient, more importantly, tenants can greatly reduce their software development costs, hardware acquisition costs, training costs, and upgrade and maintenance costs by using the application system, which virtually eased business cost pressures and makes more focus on business development. This paper elaborates the personalized needs of tenants for Multi-Tenant Applications mainly from the three aspects: data, function, and interface. With the configuration of data, function and interface, Multi-tenant applications will become better.
