Why Software as a Service?
Focus on Your Core Business
Is IT expertise a critical success factor for your business? Unless you are a technology company the answer should be NO! What most businesses need is the capability to automate business processes to improve the efficiency of their staff and their value chain.
Software as a service (SaaS, typically pronounced 'Sass') is a model of software deployment that allows you to focus on your core business and not on keeping up with the latest hardware and software technology. By outsourcing to an expert in the application and the underlying technology, you can focus on using the latest tools to improve your business.
Software as a Service Defined
Software as a service is a model of software deployment where an application is hosted as a service and provided to customers across the Internet. By 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. The key characteristics of SaaS software, according to 2005 IDC whitepaper include:
- network-based access to, and management of, commercially available software
- activities that are managed from central locations rather than at each customer's site, enabling customers to access applications remotely via the Web
- application delivery that typically is closer to a one-to-many model than to a one-to-one model, including architecture, pricing, partnering, and management characteristics
- centralized feature updating, which obviates the need for downloadable patches and upgrades.

Business 1 Online vs. the "Competition"
Choosing a service provider is similar to choosing a brain surgeon. Your service provider will be responsible for the health of your business management software which provides information to run your business (a.k.a. the brain of your business). Before comparing features of the service provider ask yourself the questions:
- Does the service provider understand my software?
- Is hosting business management software their core competency?
- Is my price fully inclusive? Business 1 Online does not consider anti-virus an option but a requirement!
