This is a significant departure from the on-premise software delivery model.
1. Startup’s or companies don’t have to invest in expensive hardware to host the software, and this in turn, allows buyers to outsource most of the IT responsibilities typically required to troubleshoot and maintain the software.
2. Backup are taking by the Saas vendor.
3. Security is also taken care by the same vendor.
4. Technical Support is also provided if any assistants are needed.
5. The SaaS vendor takes care of all the issues.
In addition to allowing remote access via the web to the software applications and data,
SaaS also differs from on-premise software in it’s pricing model.
On-premise software is typically purchased through a perpetual license, which means buyers own a license to the software. They also pay 15% to 20% per year in maintenance and support fees. Plus also bears the Infrastructure cost.
SaaS, on the other hand, allows buyers to pay an annual or monthly subscription fee, which typically includes the software license, support, and most other fees. A major benefit of SaaS is being able to spread out costs over time.
