SaaS (Software as a Service)

The Software as a Service (SaaS) wave is dramatically changing the software business. SaaS is a model for software delivery where a software company publishes one copy of their software on the Internet and allows individuals and companies to "rent" it through a subscription model. The software company centrally operates, maintains and supports all its customers using this centralized service.

SaaS is a rapidly growing trend in the software market. Industry analysts like IDC and Gartner are forecasting the SaaS market to grow at 25% compound rate over the next five years reaching $19.3 billion worldwide by 2011.

Challenges
Software companies face substantial challenges moving from a traditional software business to a SaaS business model. Red Apple Inc is working with software vendors to address these challenges. Some of the challenges we hear from software vendors are depicted in the picture below
