Scalability Matters In The Digital Economy
The chart below truly highlights the scalability requirements for SaaS providers like ourselves in the Digital Economy, especially during the Holiday Season.
With consumers activating devices, downloading applications, and turning on subscriptions, some of the peak scale needs for merchants don’t fall on Black Friday or CyberMonday, but on Christmas and the days immediately following it.

Just in case you wondered if this client could be an outlier, here are a couple of additional digital clients who also saw a sizable Christmas spike.
