SaaS and the Cloud
  • SaaS and the Cloud

    Cloud computing has completely revolutionized the IT industry. What once required huge capital investments in hardware and network infrastructure can now be done for a fraction of the cost and the time with cloud computing services.

    Software as a Service (SaaS) has completely changed the way businesses communicate, internally and externally, and do business. SaaS makes us of cloud computing infrastructure to deliver a single application to many users, from anywhere at any time. This is different from the traditional model of one application per device because it allows activities to be managed from a single central location in a one-to-many model.  This model provides many benefits to business owners, which has caused an explosion in the use of SaaS products and services over the last five years.

    Reasons to Consider Cloud-Based SaaS Services

    There are many reasons to consider cloud-based software services. The most popular reasons for companies opting to adopt SaaS are for cost, convenience, and efficiency.

    Unlike traditional software that must be installed locally on every computer’s hard drive, SaaS products are accessible from anywhere with an internet connection. This allows employees the ability to easily and efficiently work from wherever they are in the world. Since all projects are hosted and managed on the web, multiple users can quickly and easily collaborate, removing many of the inefficiencies associated with past practices. No longer do multiple versions of documents have to be sent around and edited individually.

    For IT professionals, convenience is a big factor. IT professionals that formerly had to installs software on every individual device on a company’s network and do they same every time any major updates hit the market no longer have this burden. SaaS products ensure that all users are using the same version and compatibility across devices is ensured. This eliminates a lot of time and cost from IT department budgets.

    Popular SaaS Products

    It is likely that you have not only heard of many of the most popular SaaS products, but you probably have even used them before. Some of the most popular SaaS products include:

    • Microsoft Office 365
    • Google Apps
    • GoToMeeting
    • Oracle
    • SalesForce
    • Constant Contact
    • And Many More!

    These few products alone have had a significant impact on the way we do business. For instance, GoToMeeting has revolutionized the way we conduct business meetings. No longer do companies have to send employees to every meeting. Now, especially for non-critical meetings, GoToMeeting allows people to meet quicker and easier than ever–for a fraction of the cost of in-person meetings.

    Microsoft Office 365 is threatening to completely change the way we create, share, and collaborate on files. No longer do you have to edit a document, email it to a coworker, and wait on their revisions. Now, all documents can be stored, managed, and edited on the cloud in a collaborative manner. Further, the entire ecosystem can be managed from a single location, freeing up time for and expense from your IT department.

    All of these services and more can save businesses thousands of dollars and countless hours of inefficient and unproductive work.
