What Is Software as a Service (SaaS)?

June 12, 2023

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a cloud-based software delivery model in which a third-party provider hosts an app and makes it available to clients over the Internet. The SaaS provider operates and maintains the software and its underlying infrastructure. The end user simply pays a subscription fee (if there is one) and uses the ready-made app via a browser, mobile app, or an API.
