The future of software

What is SaaS?

Software as a Service or on-demand software is a way of delivering applications to the end-user over the internet. Thanks to this model, those apps can provide great advantages for most businesses, primarily in costs and flexibility.

The advantages of using SaaS products

Why wouldn't go for a on-premise?

Lower up-front cost

It is generally subscription-based model and has no up-front licence fees resulting in lower initial costs. The SaaS provider manages the IT infrastructure that is running the software, which brings down fees for hardware and software maintenance.

Accessibility

All you need to access a application in this model is a browser and an internet connection. This is generally available on a wide range of devices and from anywhere in the world, making SaaS more accessible than the traditional business software installation.

Scalability

Providers offers many subscription options and flexibility to change subscriptions as and when needed, eg when your business grows, or more users need to access the service.

Quick set up and deployment

The application is already installed and configured in the cloud. This minimises common delays resulting from often lengthy traditional software deployment.
