There’s a good chance that MOST of the software applications you use every day are SaaS applications, or ‘software as a service’. In other words, you don’t have to install them on your server or computer, you simply access it as a pay as you go model for only the licenses, space and features that you use. This gives you the ability to access highly sophisticated software and functionality at a fraction of the cost and without long term commitments.
With just a username, password, and internet access you have the ability to access highly sophisticated software and take advantage of all its functionality.
