The term SaaS (Software as a Service) defines a technology that offers a remote access to a software rather than a local installation on the enterprise server. An SaaS offer is associated with the principle of software rental. The software turns to a service.
The advantages of SaaS for the customer
- Rapidity of the solution deployment.
- Data backup and security.
- Mutualization of costs: no hardware or licence investment is required.
- Reduced internal costs, be they material or human (operating budget).
- Eased software update.
- On-demand payment.
The SaaS allows for faster access to new applications, at a lower cost and without turning the current infrastructure upside down.
