Software as a Service SaaS

Software as a service (SaaS) also known as "on-demand software" is a software delivery model in which software platforms and associated data are centrally hosted on the cloud. SaaS has become a common delivery model for many business applications, including accounting, collaboration, customer relationship management (CRM), management information systems (MIS), enterprise resource planning (ERP) (…). SaaS has been incorporated into the strategy of all leading enterprise software companies. One of the biggest selling points for these companies is the potential to reduce IT support costs by outsourcing hardware and software maintenance and support to the SaaS provider.*
