What is SaaS?

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a type of software delivery model in which software and associated data are hosted in the cloud and accessed by users through a web browser. This type of software delivery model offers a range of benefits, from reduced maintenance costs to scalability and flexibility. Companies can take advantage of SaaS solutions to quickly deploy software solutions to customers.

Types of SaaS Solutions

SaaS solutions come in a variety of forms, from email services to customer relationship management (CRM) software. Examples include Google’s Gmail, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, Salesforce, Zenefits, Xero, Basecamp, and WordPress.

Which One is Not an Example of SaaS?

The answer is simple: desktop software. Desktop software is installed directly on the user’s computer or server, and does not require an internet connection to be accessed. Examples of desktop software include Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, and Apple’s iWork suite.
