SaaS - Software As A Service

Software as a Service (SaaS) is the distribution of software where individuals and small businesses access software over the Internet. 

In SaaS, a service provider hosts the application at its data center and a small business it via a standard web browser.

There are a few major characteristics that apply to most SaaS vendors:
  • Updates are applied automatically without customer intervention.
  • The service is purchased on a subscription basis.
  • No hardware is required to be installed by the customer
SaaS is also known as hosted software or on-demand software.
