The software as a service (SaaS) model has become increasingly popular, and with good reason. SaaS – a delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is made available to customers over a network – offers many benefits compared to having an in-house application development team (or an external services supplier) build a system or buying from a vendor.
For founders, SaaS means opportunity. The SaaS market is exploding. Analysts project that the global SaaS enterprise application market will grow from a $22.6 billion market in 2013 to $50.8 billion in 2018.
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has taken the technology world by storm. Nowadays, all new software companies are SaaS, which simply means they are based in the cloud and have subscription pricing. With the exception of mobile applications and e-commerce, almost all new companies are following this model.
It is not surprising. The benefits of SaaS over older models of software delivery are clear. Cloud based software can be updated and improved much more rapidly than on-premise software, with a fraction of the cost of maintenance. Subscription pricing means that revenue continues to roll in month after month for the entire life of a customer.
