Would You Outsource Your Startup to a SaaS?

A post on News Y Combinator has an intriguing proposition to the sometimes daunting task that startups face when launching a service.

The post asks if startups would be interested in a service that offered an API and other services to launch a startup.

Developer Regan Wolfrom wrote the post. In a reply to comments in the post, he said he and his partners are developing a service that would offer an API, and potentially an embedded JavaScript, to analyze the data from a launch and provide updates, alerts and reporting. The service would track users, while allowing for customized alerts and feature controls.

The developers came to the idea following its own work on a service it plans to release in a few weeks. They saw the need for the service in the first release as well as for a line of successive products the group is developing. Here are the features they are considering.

What do you think?

The idea that a startup would use a SaaS for launch is a testament to the level of automation that comes with cloud computing. It’s also an example of how startups will be launched ever faster and at a clip that makes today’s pace seem slight by comparison.
