SaaS has become a common delivery model for businesses today due to its numerous advantages. The shift from traditional legacy business model to a modern, flexible SaaS model has proved to be effective in terms of costs and performance for business, especially for the small and medium-sized businesses, by making physical hardware redundant. Consequently, the initial setup costs are drastically reduced with the adoption of SaaS. Integration of SaaS within a business is generally instantaneous and provides the corporation with added scalability and flexibility. Moreover, SaaS providers price their services using a monthly or annual subscription fee. This provides businesses with flexibility in their spend, forces service vendors to continuously improve their services, and promotes a customer-centric approach. The use of SaaS also frees up resources for corporations as service providers generally manage applications, and address security concerns and performance issues.
