Software as a Service (SaaS)

What is SaaS in Cloud Computing?

With its low costs and substantial benefits, SaaS adoption is skyrocketing. But, what is SaaS all about?

Software as a service (SaaS) is a key component of the cloud computing ecosystem.

SaaS allows users to ‘rent’ or subscribe to a software application and execute it online, rather than purchasing it to install on in-house computers. The Cloud services provider installs, operates, and maintains the required type of software application on behalf of the company. This reduces the installation and maintenance costs typically associated with IT platforms or infrastructures.

SaaS is universally accessible: the user can run the software on any platform or device.
