SaaS – Software as a Service (SaaS Development)
SaaS development and the cloud have become important steps in the evolution of software and availability. We get the question all the time, “What is the cloud and how does it help me?” Put simplistically, the cloud is an application delivered over the Internet. Additionally, there are some distinct advantages to running your applications this way. Some of them are listed here;
- Greatly reduced infrastructure costs
- Offloaded security and delivery requirements
- Global availability – wherever there is an Internet connection
- Constant updates with little downtime
- Flexibility in application configuration
- Reduced human resource and maintenance requirements
- Reduced energy usage and need for IT facilities
- On call expertise without the expense
Is SaaS Development Right for Me?
First, there are a lot of reasons why you should seriously look at the cloud. Consequently, the cloud is a viable alternative for everything from your email systems, website delivery, data interactions, analytics and enterprise application delivery. Also, chances are pretty good that you are already utilizing a Software as a Service (SaaS) architecture and don’t even know it. Because these websites are typically hosted offsite, they are perfect examples of what a SaaS platform looks like.
Finally, there may or may not be a significant cost savings if you are not already running business in the cloud. So, if you want to find out more about potential cost savings to you, contact us and we will have a representative contact you.

As a result, they will be able to help you determine which (if any) applications you should move or keep onsite. Also, he or she will help you define your most efficient and cost efficient architecture designed specifically for you.
