Is your application well layered?

Incorrect layering is a common problem for legacy systems. To avoid major rework some people tend to continue with the existing architecture, which might not be layered properly. This could become a major show stopper when the SaaS application starts experiencing performance issues.

Do you have service oriented architecture between the layers?

I've always wondered why CIOs can't just say "NO" to BYOD. Well, CIO.com reporter Tom Kanshige wrote about one who did.

In fact, he cites a survery where just over half of companies do not allow BYOD at all. Have we in the media drunk the BYOD KoolAid that flies in the face of what is really happening? Quite possibly. 

I would posit that some if not many companies are not as obssessed with technology as we in the vendor, analyst and media communities. After all, someone have to forge car axles.
