Advantages of Software as a Service (SaaS) in Cloud Computing

Software as a Service (SaaS) is an alternative to the standard on premise software installation in the business environment (traditional model) where a user has to build the server, install the application and configure it.

SaaS applications allow the user full access to application features, typically from any device type, and the organization only pays for each user’s access to the online application.

Business Benefits of Software as a Service

Reduce Time to Benefit

Faster deployment means users have faster access to necessary applications

Lower Costs

Shared multi-tenant environments typically mean more users have access at overall lower costs to the business

Scalability & Integration

Hosting in cloud environments allows for more scalability in addition to easier integrations with other applications

Upgrades & Patches

SaaS providers handle upgrades and patches, typically rolling them in seamlessly with no impact to the user base

Easy Testing & POCs

With less to install and impact in the internal environment, SaaS makes testing and proof of concepts faster and easier to execute

Pay as You Go

Get predictable costs for the subscription and the administration, even as you scale, so you always know where your budget stands.
