On-demand software, also known as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), or even "Cloud Computing", is a software delivery model where a vendor hosts and operates the application for use by its customers over the Internet. Customers pay for using the service, not owning the software.
On-demand delivery offers many benefits over installed software, including faster deployment, lower cost of entry, lower ongoing maintenance, and substantial savings on expensive resources to install, configure, and maintain the solutions. These benefits enable dramatically faster return on investment and a lower total cost of ownership.
In fact, a recent Software and Information Industry Association study found that on-demand deployments are 50% to 90% faster, with a total cost of ownership (TCO) five to ten times less expensive than installed software.
