Don’t be scared of SaaS: a quick FAQ
- What is SaaS?
SaaS means Software as a Service. It’s a different way to access software rather than buying the software to install and own.
- Ok, what does that mean, a different way to access besides buying?
Most people are familiar with Netflix. Selecting and watching a movie through the Netflix app is SaaS. Buying a physical copy of the movie, whether it is digital or a DVD, for example, is not SaaS. That is called perpetual ownership.
- Is there a difference in cost between SaaS and perpetual?
You bet, and it’s why SaaS can be so attractive to any budget. Rather than a huge upfront cost for a software license and hardware to run it, you pay as you go.
Back to Netflix: they offer thousands of movies. Buying a DVD of each movie they offered would cost tens of thousands of dollars, or more, plus the cost of hardware to play them. Now imagine having to pay that cost up front. Not very budget friendly! Instead, they offer full access to their library through an app on an internet-connected device for a low monthly fee.
- Wait, are software updates and maintenance easier with SaaS?
Yes! We do that for you, included in the subscription cost!
- What other great advantages are there with SaaS?
