So, what is Software as a Service (SaaS) and why does your company need it?
In a nutshell—fully cracked and ready for consumption—SaaS is a software and data delivery model that is hosted by the cloud. The cloud is the conduit that brings the software to you and your business.
Basically, cloud storage replaces the need for that old-school floppy disk or CD. This enables the software application to be downloaded directly to your computer.
This convenience is just one of the many reasons why SaaS has steadily gained in popularity.

Thanks to cloud computing, your software updates regularly—monthly, weekly, even daily in some instances.
