Key Characteristics of SAAS<br />Available via the web<br />Product support, maintenance, enhancement and deployment are managed centrally by the Vendor<br />Deployment model is  one-to-many in terms of feature-sets<br />Pricing is kept as simple as possible<br />Many SAAS products can be ordered, immediately deployed and paid for online <br />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<br />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<br />
