Applications delivered over the web
Software as a Service (SaaS) enables both software and data to be hosted in the cloud and accessed by the user via a web browser. As SaaS utilises multi-tenanted architecture in which an application serves multiple businesses, it offers your organisation the ability to change its pricing model, benefit from relative lower costs and a transfer from a static capex to a flexible opex.
There are many non business critical applications that take up significant development time and storage space to manage in house. Take email for example. What email system you use will not offer you any competitive advantage yet you can still end up spending valuable time, resource and money managing it. These are the perfect applications to run outside of the organisation via the Cloud, freeing up your valuable time to focus on developing business critical applications.
