SAAS (Software as a Service)

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a cloud-based software delivery model where software is made available to users through the internet, typically on a subscription basis. Instead of downloading and installing software on a local computer or server, SaaS applications are hosted and managed by a third-party provider who provides access to the software over the internet.

SaaS is a popular delivery model for business applications such as customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and human resources management (HRM) software, among others.
