SAAS: On-demand software delivery
With the changing business environment, organizations are under pressure to perform better, bring innovation into their products and services, and squeeze the maximum value from limited budgets. As a result, industries are moving fast towards the on-demand deliverymodel in every aspect of business, especially IT.
Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is the rapidly growingon-demand delivery model for software. It is vastly different from the traditional model of software delivery, which needed customers to buy a license for software.SaaS is a subscription-based software delivery model which derives scalability from its multi-tenant architecture. With this model, software and associated data is hosted centrally on the cloud.This helps bring down the cost and implementation time for customers.
Since there is no upfront capital expense involved with SaaS solutions, they help you save cost. As these solutions are usually priced on a ‘pay-per-use’ model, they can also be quickly scaled up or down.
Additionally, with SaaS, the onus of the upkeep and management of the software lies with your vendor. The vendor will take care of the updates, new features, patches and versions. This saves you time and allows you to focus on your core business, enabling faster innovation for your product or service.
Today, almost every critical application that your business needs is offered under the SaaS model.These solutions have several characteristic features:
Customizable: SaaS applications are customizable, just like traditional software solutions. You can alter the functionality and the look-and-feel of the applications as per your requirement.
Accelerated feature delivery: Since SaaS applications are hosted centrally on the cloud, service providerscan update them more frequently. As they have access to user behavior along with customer data,they can add new features at an accelerated pace. With the traditional software delivery model,the addition of new features and functionality could happen only once in a year or once in six months. Now, you get immediate access to new changes in the application.
High quality: Since under the SaaS model, the entire service is outsourced to a vendor, you can demand the quality your business needs. The subscription model of engagement ensures that vendors provide the best possible service month-on-month. As a whole, this eco-system of software applications delivery fosters product innovation and keeps the focus on providing a better customer experience.
