Abstract [en]

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a subset of cloud services where a vendor provides software as a service to customers. The SaaS application is installed on the SaaS provider’s servers, and is often accessed via the web browser. In the context of SaaS, a customer is called tenant, which often is an organization that is accessing the SaaS application, but it could also be a single individual. A SaaS application can be classified into tenancy models. A tenancy model describes how a tenant’s data is mapped to the storage on the server-side of the SaaS application.By doing a research, the authors have drawn the conclusion that there is a lack of guidance for selecting tenancy models. The purpose of this thesis is to provide guidance for selecting tenancy models. The short-term-goal is to create a tenancy selection guide. The long-term-goal is to provide researchers and students with research material. This thesis provides a guidance model for selection of tenancy models. The model is called Tenancy Model Selection Guidelines (TMSG).TMSG was evaluated by interviewing two professionals from the software industry. The criteria used for evaluating TMSG were Interviewee credibility, Syntactic correctness, Semantic correctness, Usefulness and Model flexibility. In the interviews, both of the interviewees said that TMSG was in need of further refinements. Still they were positive to the achieved result.

Abstract [sv]

Software as a Service (SaaS) är en delmängd av molntjänster där en tjänsteleverantör tillgodoser mjukvara som en tjänst åt kunder. SaaS-applikationen installeras på SaaS-leverantörens servrar, och åtkomsten till applikationen sker oftast via webbläsaren. I sammanhanget av SaaS kallas en kund för ten-ant, vilket oftast består av en organisation, eller i vissa fall enbart av en användare. En SaaS-applikation kan delas in i tenancy-modeller. En tenancymodell beskriver hur en tenant:s data är associerad till lagringsutrymmet på SaaS-leverantörens server.Efter att ha gjort en förstudie kunde författarna dra slutsatsen att det råder guidningsbrist för val av tenancy-modeller. Syftet med denna tes är att tillgodose vägledning för val av tenancy-modeller. Kortsiktsmålet är att skapa en guide för val av tenancy-modeller. Långsiktsmålet är att tillgodose forskare och studenter med forskningsmaterial. Denna tes tillgodoser en modell för guidning av val för tenancy-modeller. Namnet på denna guide är textitTenancy Model Selection Guidelines (TMSG).TMSG utvärderades genom intervjuer med två personer som jobbar inom mjukvaru-branschen. Kriterierna som användes vid utvärderingen av TMSG var följande: Trovärdighet hos den intervjuade personen, Syntaktisk korrekthet, Semantisk korrekthet, Användbarhet och Modellens flexibilitet. I båda intervjuerna ansåg de medverkande att TMSG behöver ytterligare finslipning, och de var båda positiva till det uppnådda resultatet.
