Is the SaaS Model Right for You?

SaaS Model is also known as : Software on Demand, Software as a Service Model, SaaS Vendor, SaaS Market, SaaS Providers, SaaS Hosting, SaaS Application, Software on Demand Model

For IT departments drowning in complex and expensive software maintenance chores, the Software as a Service (SaaS) model promises to ease the burden dramatically. SaaS reduces complexity by outsourcing most of the infrastructure required to run software applications (to the software vendors themselves) and reduces costs by charging only for what is consumed.

While the vision sounds like utopia for IT departments and the people who fund them, SaaS is not a panacea. For the right computing applications it could be a Godsend, allowing companies to outsource non-core competencies and focus on what they do best. For other situations, it’s a not a good idea. Fortunately, it’s not an either/or choice. In the world of cloud computing (which includes SaaS, among other services), you can adopt a hybrid model in which some systems are outsourced and others are kept in-house.
