Software as a Service (SaaS)
A Software as a Service (SaaS) offers a set of functionalities that users subscribe to. The applications are hosted on the servers of the software providers and the user does not have to install or maintain any software. The user only needs to connect via the Internet to benefit from the service and all the related advantages. The provider manages the security, access, storage and performance of the applications. This offshore management and maintenance offers a huge advantage to corporate IT departments: their teams can focus on strategic tasks rather than on managing software and hardware.
