What is SAAS?
SAAS stands for Software as a Service.
SaaS is a software delivery method that provides access to software and its functions remotely as a Web-based service. Software as a Service allows organizations to access business functionality at a cost typically less than paying for licensed applications since SaaS pricing is based on a monthly fee. Also, because the software is hosted remotely, users don't need to invest in additional hardware.
Software as a Service removes the need for organizations to handle the installation, set-up and often daily upkeep and maintenance.
Benefits of the SaaS model include:
- easier administration
- automatic updates and patch management
- compatibility: All users will have the same version of software.
- easier collaboration, for the same reason
- global accessibility.
