What is SaaS?

Software as a Service, also known as SaaS, is a cloud-based service easily accessible on an application via an internet browser. It hosts your data all in one place for better convenience, regular updates, and is accessible to any device with a network connection. Oberholtzer Media provides ongoing service and support, long after your solution is deployed.

 

What are examples of SaaS?

Any cloud-based service that can store data for you to retrieve whenever you need it is considered an example of SaaS. For example, Evernote or Dropbox are considered SaaS programs. Communication platforms could also be considered examples of SaaS, such as Salesforce or any apps available on G Suite. We’re all using SaaS to better perform at work. According to Statista, quoted in Finances Online, “In 2018, the global SaaS workload grew to 206 million and is predicted to reach 380 million by 2021 (Statista, 2018).”

 

What are SaaS products?

Now that you have examples of SaaS uses in the workplace, what are some other programs that are considered SaaS products? Some SaaS products you may be familiar with include Adobe’s Creative Cloud and Hubspot. Cloud traffic continues to grow and, therefore, the need for even more SaaS products does too. We expect to see more, updated products releasing in the next few years.

 

Can I customize SaaS data?

You can! It may require a paid plan on the app of your choosing, but can be customized for your business and individual teams’ needs. We are always interested in new products and services, either to provide to your relationships, or to develop internally. If you have a need or want to learn more about our current SaaS offering, please contact Oberholtzer Media.

 

Who owns my SaaS data?

While the software company itself owns the data and configuration of the app, the user owns all their input data and information. Additionally, SaaS products are becoming increasingly careful with data protections for their users. When signing up, it’s best to review the compliance guidelines and our support team is here to help every step of the way.
