Together with the platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS), software as a service (SaaS) is one of the three primary tiers of cloud computing, allowing businesses to redirect resources away from IT hardware, software, and personnel expenses, and towards other business needs.

Currently, companies and users have at their disposal various technological tools, which allow them greater accessibility wherever they are. And it is that behind were the unique applications developed by the same companies, which required them to be installed, with specific maintenance, as well as the maintenance and updating of hardware and software for their proper functioning. When the “Saas” (#SoftwareasaService) service arrives on the scene, the technological solutions and software can be contracted as a service, only through an internet connection. The services are executed in the #cloud, so the provider companies are responsible for managing access and maintaining connectivity, data structure, and ensuring the proper functioning of the service. Among the main benefits that SaaS has, are:
• With SaaS, companies can continually regulate #software compliance based on business needs and customer demand.
• Since your service is through subscriptions, there is a cost reduction for companies, since the SaaS provider is responsible for the #IT infrastructure, in many cases both in software and hardware.
• The SaaS provider is responsible for managing updates. He also takes care of availability, so customers don't have to add #hardware, software, or bandwidth as the user base grows.
• SaaS applications are available from any computer or device, anytime, anywhere, through SaaS Cloud Computing. With #Internet availability everywhere, SaaS platforms tend to have high adoption rates, along with virtually no need for training.
One of the great benefits of SaaS is that developers can serve multiple customers with a single product version, so this approach allows companies to grow faster without replacing expensive infrastructure or hiring more IT staff. On the other hand, since SaaS is subscription-based, it can help keep IT budget costs to a minimum.
