What is SaaS?


SaaS stands for software as a service and it is also known as cloud-based software. It refers to a process where a software makes data accessible by any device through the use of the internet and web browser as a service. This model is used by software creators and vendors to host and manage servers, databases, and codes to run an application.

Saas is sometimes referred to as hosted software, web-based software, or on-demand software. Saas works when you only have to log in to a particular app or web instead of installing the software on your computer. The provider will manage the data storage, security, performance, and other related activities of the app.

By using SaaS, the company’s information technology department will have less worry in managing complicated software and hardware, and they can give more attention to their more important responsibilities.
