What is Software-as-a-Service?
In today’s world, SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) refers to a new and alternative way of accessing popular software, as opposed to more traditional method of access.
In the past, businesses would purchase software outright to be loaded directly onto a computer. With SaaS, this software can now be purchased on a subscription-based model where the software is hosted in the cloud and accessed via the internet. There are a number of benefits to this model for most businesses.
- Lower Cost – SaaS allows companies to access productivity applications at a cost that is often less than paying for individual licenses removing the need for large up-front investment.
- SaaS removes the need for organizations to handle the installation, set-up and upkeep and maintenance of software applications.
- Flexible Payments – When subscribing to a software, you pay for the service on a monthly basis using a pay-as-you-go model. This moves the costs to a recurring operating expense allowing your business to make your business’ budgeting better and more predictable. You can also terminate a subscription offering at any time to stop the recurring costs.
- Scalability – Many cloud service options provide high scalability, which gives your business the option to access more, or less, services or features on demand.
- Automatic Updates and Patch Management – Instead of having to continue to purchase software when new versions come out, your business can rely on the subscription service to automatically perform updates and patch management for the latest version of the software. This reduces the burden of having to manually do updates for new versions further reducing costs.
- Other advantages of SaaS include ease of administration, and having the same software version across the entire organization.
