The trend is clear. Software is moving to a SaaS model at a rapid pace and for good reason. The lower up-front costs and ease of use are too good to ignore.
Today users want availability anywhere, any time and only cloud based applications can deliver on these new expectations. Users enjoy more flexibility with SaaS and a better user experience across multiple devices and multiple locations. Being tied to one specific machine is no longer aligned with the reality of today’s workforce.
Another benefit is lower risk. SaaS transfers responsibility back to the developers, which gives users added security and reliability. With SaaS there’s no need to maintain software, troubleshoot glitches or lose sleep over ensuring each device is up-to-date. Organisations can enjoy less strain for over-burdened IT departments thanks to a reliable SaaS provider.
SaaS is scalable and cost-effective. SaaS subscriptions require a smaller up-front investment and offer simple and flexible sign-up options to align with the workforce needs. A SaaS model also ensures faster deployment with no need to install executable files. Cloud based software also provides instant access to the latest fixes, features, and enhancements. No need to wait until next year any longer!
With the ability to access software and data from any location, on demand, securely and reliably, enables users to improve productivity and collaboration. The case for a SaaS future is clear.
