Software as a Service / software-as-a-Service (SaaS)

Software as a service (SaaS) is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed to a business or end user via a subscription. Applications are hosted by a vendor or service provider and made available to customers, usually via the internet. SaaS is sometimes referred to as on-demand software. It has become an increasingly popular model for buying business applications as it eliminates the burden of hardware and software maintenance for the end user.
