What is software as a service (SaaS)?

Software as a service (SaaS) is one of several common distribution models for software, together with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS).

In the SaaS model, a cloud provider hosts the software used by customers. The software is therefore made available to them via the internet rather than locally hosted.

In most cases the company providing the hosting is the same company that develops and sells the software. In some instances, a third party that specialises in hosting may be used to host the application. This is often referred to as an Independent Software Vendor (ISV).

A wide range of organisations and consumers use a wide range of SaaS applications. The end function and service provided may vary wildly. For example entertainment is provided in the form of SaaS via Netflix. Professional tools like Adobe Suite and Microsoft 365 can be in the form of Saas. Accounting or financial tools like Xero - just to name a few. SaaS products are frequently marketed to both B2B and B2C users. Whereas IaaS and PaaS are typically marketed to B2B for professionals and corporations.

Here are some popular SaaS apps:

According to a recent McKinsey & Company report, technology industry analysts predict further growth in the software as a service market. It is predicted that the market for SaaS products will near $200 billion by the year 2024.
