ebizQ and SaaS Week

Vote 0 Votes

It is with great pleasure that I share the news that ebizQ has welcomed SaaS Week as a premier partner in its network family. Saas Week is a labor of love for a member of our ebizQ team, and I heartily congratulate Prakash Kannoth on his personal and professional insight into this around-the-curve technology set. With the help of SaaS Week, we are looking forward to bringing the ebizQ reader more news about this fast growing 2.0 industry concept, Software-as-a-Service. SaaS Week can be visited now here.

From the ebizQ release on this subject:

"We recognize that companies like Salesforce.com are starting to permeate the market in terms of providing and securing business agility for companies on an ad-hoc basis," said Les Yeamans, ebizQ president and publisher. "Our research team has been involved with SaaS Week since its inception and with its lead, Jayaprakash Kannoth, and we look forward to welcoming SaaS Week to our ebizQ network," he said.

SaaS is a software distribution model in which applications are hosted by a vendor or service provider and made available to customers over a network, typically the internet. The customer is alleviated from the maintenance and daily technical operation and support of business and/or consumer software.

SaaS is a model of software delivery rather than a market segment; software can be delivered using this method to any market segment including home consumers, small business, medium and large business.

Benefits of the SaaS model include:

Easier administration

Automatic updates and patch management

Compatibility: All users will have the same version of software. easier collaboration, for the same reason

Global accessibility.

SaaS allows organizations to access business functionality at a cost typically less than paying for licensed applications since SaaS pricing is based on a monthly fee. Also, because the software is hosted remotely, users don't need to invest in additional hardware. SaaS removes the need for organizations to handle the installation, set-up and often daily upkeep and maintenance. Software as a Service may also be referred to as simply hosted applications.
