SaaS or Software as a Service is the process of delivering applications over the internet. Instead of installing or maintaining the software, you can access it over the internet without spending on software and hardware management. SaaS is otherwise called web-based tools or on-demand software or hosted software.
The SaaS applications will run on the provider’s server by managing access to the application including availability, security, and performance.
Benefits of SaaS
Access to the sophisticated applications: You don’t want to purchase, update, or install any hardware, middleware, or software. SaaS makes the enterprise applications including CRM and ERP affordable for organizations and makes it easy to deploy, purchase, or manage the infrastructure and software.
Pay for your usage: SaaS service saves your money because it automatically scales up and scales down according to the usage.
Free client software: Users can run their saas applications directly from their web browser without downloading or installing it. Thus you no need to install additional software for your users.
Mobilize your workforce: SaaS makes it easy for the workforce as they can access the SaaS applications from an internet-connected computer or mobile phone. You don’t need to worry about developing applications that run on different devices or operating systems. You also don’t need a specialist to manage security issues. The best-chosen service provider will safeguard your data regardless of the type of device using it.
Access your SaaS application from anywhere: With cloud storage, you can access the information from a computer or mobile device. When application data is stored in the cloud, the data will not be lost when a computer or device fails.
