• As companies aggressively advance to acquire the advantages of cloud, Soft-ware-as-a-Solution(SaaS) become more and more popular. Implemented throughout enterprises and start-ups, SaaS applications have come to account for almost 69 percent of the overall public cloud market, as suggested by IDC. However, despite these encouraging trends, the overall growth of the SaaS market through the years has been slow. In fact, spending on SaaS still remains comparatively small to on-premise software. That being said, to trivialize the innumerable benefits that SaaS solutions bring to the table would be strategically wrong. SaaS solutions prove to be a great proposition with the possibility to pay for only what is needed, without the necessity to invest in the hardware for new applications. Moreover, it is the solution provider who will do much of the work, getting the procured software up and running. Organ-isations can thus invest the new found time and funds in their mission-critical operations. Hosted in the cloud, accessible to the solution any time anywhere is yet another advantage. The scope of customization as per the unique requirement of the business, higher agility with integration and scalability together with regular updates only make SaaS solutions all the more lucrative.
