Although cloud computing has been around for awhile, to average people it is a mysterious entity that simply doesn’t make sense. There are different cloud computing models, including one called Software as a Service or SaaS. In a nutshell, SaaS allows people to subscribe to a desired software and access it without having to download or install the software on their computer.
While the obvious benefit is that the software will not take up valuable disk space on your device, there are also other benefits. For example, in many cases it is much cheaper to subscribe to a software rather than purchase it outright. Additionally, maintenance is seamless – if there is a new version of the software out, you will access it the next time you log in to use it. In other words, there is no need to keep up on any updates. Software as a Service is cost effective, secure and convenient.
