saas benefitsAccess your information from anywhere, all the time. With Hosted SaaS, your data lives in a state-of-the-art data center that possesses enterprise security and a highly available network. Access your environment remotely and enjoy speedy performance from down the road or across the world.

First, Let’s Look at the Difference Between SaaS and IaaS:

IaaS “Infrastructure as a Service”
When an organization outsources or hosts their operations, usually involving storage, hardware, servers and networks. The hosting service provides the equipment as well as maintains, runs and houses it. Also known as Cloud Computing.

SaaS “Software as a Service”
When an organization is provided access to software and its functions remotely via an outsourcing or hosting provider. Typically this is done to save costs on licensing, hardware, installation, upkeep and maintenance.

Why SaaS Hosting is Better Than Using Your Own Servers:

  • Solutions are housed in state-of-the-art hosting data centers
  • Your applications always receive the latest updates
  • Your business can save significant time and money
  • You’re backed by a dedicated Support team that knows the technology inside and out

So, what SaaS solution is right for my business?

When making the choice between on-premises products and on-demand solutions, business and IT decision-makers should use the following questions to determine which is best suited to meet the needs of their organization:

  • Do you have the financial resources to withstand the upfront capital costs of acquiring the hardware and software to support your business requirements?
  • Do you have the internal skills to select the right hardware and software to meet your business objectives?
  • Do you have sufficient resources to successfully deploy and keep your hardware and software up and running?
  • Do you know if you are getting the best performance and greatest value from your hardware and software investments?
  • Do you have the expertise and experience to combat today’s escalating security threats?
  • Would you rather focus your limited financial and staff resources on your core business?

Who uses Software as a Service?

Everyone! For example, most individuals have Webmail accounts with a major email provider like Yahoo, Gmail or Hotmail. Millions of individuals also have blogs hosted on sites like Blogger.com, WordPress.com and more.

With SaaS applications, all software and data you add is stored remotely on the host’s servers, which can be accessed from any computer. SaaS has made it possible for individuals to check their email, update their blog and even collaborate with their organization from any computer with Internet access, worldwide.
