Software as a service (SaaS) is a delivery model in which software and associated data are centrally hosted on the cloud.
Software as a Service is the first step into Cloud for many Organisations and the one that most are already familiar with; CRM, ERP and Email are all examples of SaaS that many Companies have already invested in and are using in day-to-day working lives.
The shift by large enterprises from on-premise software solutions to SaaS-enabled applications is a rapidly growing trend. Gartner predicts that SaaS will account for 15 percent of enterprise application purchases by 2015, up from 10 percent today.
The benefits of SaaS applications are obvious but only fully embraced if performance is a key consideration during the implementation and ongoing evolution of the application.
