Last issue dated September 15, 2020 we started with the cloud computing article, so in continuation of the series, we will be taking about software-as-a-service (SaaS) in this issue and we will be talking about other use cases of cloud computing in the upcoming articles. So what is SaaS? In laymen terms, SaaS is a software delivery model, where a lease or a license fee is charged to consumers per month and a non-contractor, normally the software provider, makes the program over the Internet accessible. As well as infrastructure-as-service (Iaas) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS), SaaS is one of the major commercial implementations of cloud computing. In SaaS the user depends on the software provider to allow access to the application over the website, hosting and managing on his own computer instead of buying a hard copy of an app and downloading it on a local server. When a customer buys a SaaS-software tool, it is normally the provider who hosts and promotes access to the program, but this is not the only way. There are also application service providers (ASPs) which benefit from data center management and host applications for their own customer networks.
