  1. Reducing Operational Costs through Software as a Service (SaaS) 22 March 2009 QAD Midwest User Group Meeting (MMUG)

  2. Market Definition • On Demand/Software as a Service (SaaS) • (SaaS, typically pronounced 'Sass') is a model of software deployment where an application is hosted as a service, provided to customers across the Internet. • Eliminating the need to install and run the application on the customer's own computer, SaaS alleviates the customer's burden of software maintenance, ongoing operation, and support. • Using SaaS also reduces the up-front expense of software purchases, through less costly, on-demand pricing.” Source - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_as_a_Service
