Software As a Service

What is SaaS?

Also known as on-demand software, SaaS technology makes programs and applications available over the web, rather than asking businesses to download and install them on their own computers. This means they can be accessed from anywhere, and your organisation doesn’t need to worry about things like updates, configuration, and patches yourself. Various service models and pricing options also allow for greater flexibility and efficiency.

In your personal life, a streaming service like Netflix is an example of a SaaS system, but with their service directed at individual consumers rather than at businesses. On an organisational level, third-party vendor products such as Salesforce, MailChimp, Hubspot and ZenDesk are common SaaS business use examples.


IaaS and PaaS, versus Software as a Service

Historically, enterprises have operated their software on their own computer networks or internal infrastructure. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) are partially self-managed solutions. However, in recent years, many customers and vendors have switched to the Software as a Service business model.

IaaS and PaaS still rely on the business owner to maintain many of the services, where SaaS systems allow business owners to focus on other aspects of their organisation, and watch as their business grows. SaaS applications are an ingenious and secure process of delivering applications over the net.

What software as a service companies do:

A third-party vendor, also known as a SaaS company, develops a cloud-based software application and then operates and hosts that service over the Internet for clients who subscribe to the service provider. Software companies are developing more and more software solutions that are optimised for use with cloud providers on the cloud platform.

With the SaaS offerings, businesses no longer have to buy, install, update, and maintain software and hardware, freeing them from intricate hardware and software management. Software solutions like SaaS applications will provide your company with the technology and tools you need to be a leader in your industry, leaving the hard work to the service provider to manage your software and apps.

Frequently asked questions

What’s the difference between SaaS and PaaS?

While SaaS and PaaS share several characteristics, it’s mainly how they’re used that differentiates them.

PaaS vs SaaS models:

PaaS, or Platform as a Service, is essentially a platform that software developers can use to create their own apps. AWS Elastic Beanstalk is a good example of a PaaS system.

SaaS systems, as we talked about above, is any software that can be accessed on demand over the web. Examples include Google Apps, GoToMeeting, and accounting, HR or tax software your business uses through a web browser rather than via a desktop program.

What about PaaS vs IaaS?

IaaS, or Infrastructure as a Service, focuses around on-demand access to hardware and computing resources and storage. IaaS gives companies all the benefits of their own data centre, just without the need to maintain it. At the same time though, they are able to administrate, monitor and access their resources through virtual machines. Amazon Web Services AWS is a prime example of IaaS.
