SaaS - Software as a service
"Computation may someday be organised as a public utility”
John McCarthyComputer Scientist 1971 Turing Award

SaaS – Software as a service is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted, normally using cloud services. SaaS is considered to be part of cloud computing

SaaS apps are typically accessed by users from any device with an internet connection and a web browser. SaaS has become a common delivery model for many business applications.

In this web-based model, software vendors host and maintain the servers, databases, and the code that makes up an application.

SaaS has been incorporated into the strategy of nearly all leading enterprise software companies.

Benefits of SaaS

Why use SaaS to deploy your software rather than a traditional approach (On-Prem)

There are two key differences between SaaS and a traditional approach:

With SaaS deployments, you don’t need to invest extensively in hardware and infrastructure to host your application. Being able to use cloud services to deploy your application and “pay as you go” for these infrastructure costs is a massive benefit particularly for companies that are just starting and might be limited in budget but also for large companies.

Most of the IT activities to troubleshoot and maintain the infrastructure can also be outsourced thus reducing your company payroll footprint.

Most SaaS applications are paid with a subscription model – as opposed to selling licenses – which helps manage cashflow and allocate costs for maintenance and the development of new versions.
