In this research brief, we analyze the relative expense structure of 400 private SaaS companies that took part in our 2015 survey. This data can serve as a baseline for similarly-sized businesses. Your company’s spend level should not necessarily track to the chart, but deviations should be understood, and in most cases, be intentional. If your business is operating in a significantly different way, you should try to understand why. That inquiry might lead to identifying inefficiencies, or possibly areas of under investment.
