On the road to making computing a utility, much like power and phone service, Software as a Service (SaaS) is a method of delivering software applications, over the ubiquitous “Cloud” (read as “internet”). With this approach small business can reduce the cost of up-front investment, and reduce the need for systems support. Advanced technology can be delivered at affordable prices for small business. SaaS provides the ability to access applications from multiple locations without duplicating all the applications at each site.
SaaS is a tool small business can use for backup and data security as well, as the data is stored remotely.
What value do you see with SaaS for your business?
