What is SaaS or Software as a Service?

Acronym of software as a service, it designates the software-delivery system whereby users access the software via a network without having to install it, configure it, or keep it on their device. Access is enabled via the internet and is provided remotely by a supplier, which is normally the owner of the program. When this is not a free service, users pay for what they use or have a subscription. Examples of SaaS include the Gmail e-mail service or an online CRM, in which end users use a web browser to access the applications, which are run using the infrastructure of an external provider located in the cloud.
