SOFTWARE AS A SERVICE
SaaS allows customers to move away from IT. As opposed to buying software licenses or servers or storage to run applications, all workloads are shifted to a SaaS provider. While you use their software, they do the heavy-lifting: upgrades to the software and hardware, patching, and guaranteed off-times. Benefits of SaaS?
- All software is handled from an IT perspective
- Servers are no longer needed to support the software because the servers are located in the cloud
- Once implemented, all you have to do is use the app and pay subscription
