  • 2. Introduction
    — The Philosophy of SAAS
  • 3. What is it?
    SAAS stands for Software as a Service
    It is commonly referred to as the Application Service Provider (ASP) model
    In general, Software As A Service meaning delivering software over the internet
    Its biggest feature is that it is generally sold on demand
    Its ability to simplify deployment and and reduce customer acquisition costs
    SAAS is also often associated with a "pay as you go" subscription licensing model

  • 5. Key Characteristics of SAAS
    Available via the web
    Product support, maintenance, enhancement and deployment are managed centrally by the Vendor
    Deployment model is  one-to-many in terms of feature-sets
    Pricing is kept as simple as possible
    Many SAAS products can be ordered, immediately deployed and paid for online 
    Due to the Vendor requirement to "package" these products and make them "self-supporting", the offering is forced to be well thought out and simple from an end user's perspective
    First-line end user support is often not provided at all, or provided through online community forums, wikis and help documentation. Interfaces are thus developed to be extremely intuitive and self-supporting
