What is SaaS?
SaaS is a software distribution model in which applications are hosted by a provider and made available over the Internet.
Organizations don’t have to invest in extensive hardware to host the software, and this in turn, allows SMBs to outsource most of the IT responsibilities typically required to troubleshoot and maintain the software. The SaaS provider takes care of it all.
How do I choose between SaaS and on-premise?
SaaS also differs from on-premise software in its 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.
SaaS, on the other hand, allows SMBs 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.
Is my data safe?
This is the biggest sticking point for organizations that are considering SaaS. In truth, data security is independent of whether the server is sitting next to you or in a different city. Software providers actually invest much more in security, backups and maintenance than any small to medium organization. With SmartStart Cloud, your application updates, maintenance, data security, backup and recovery are all managed automatically with SSAE 16 SOC II compliant process controls and infrastructure.
