Sure in-house IT has worked for us and may still have its place in some environments. However, with all the start-ups popping up, a solution was necessary to meet the demands of businesses in need of a more efficient way to manage software. SaaS is shaping up to be the leading trend for software-driven operations in the years to come. As cloud software increases its flexibility, offering more scalability and less overhead, companies may be ditching traditional hosting in favor of SaaS.
SaaS is more cost effective and alleviates the stress that comes along with on-premise IT service management, especially for newer companies with smaller budgets. Businesses are becoming "unplugged", thanks to virtual software applications. Professionals can complete tasks, backup data, and attend conferences from any location without losing valuable security. Programs can be bundled into single cost effective solutions or purchased as needed. The point is, companies purchase what they need. SaaS subscription-based programs alleviate costly overhead, allowing much-needed funds to be funneled into more productive avenues, like marketing, and business customers can focus on upgrades that become necessary as their companies grow.
