Software as a Service (SaaS)

The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on the basis of an EU regulation on May 25, 2018 and regulates the handling of personal data by companies and other legal entities.

What is Software as a Service (SaaS)?

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a form of cloud computing in which a software application is made available to users with all its underlying IT infrastructures via a web browser.

SaaS solutions are mostly based on subscription models for the provision of the cloud software. Unlike a perpetual license, in this software delivery model each account is linked to a subscription that grants SaaS access for a specified period of time - usually on an annual or monthly basis.

The advantages of a SaaS solution are, on the one hand, the clearly calculable cost model and, on the other hand, the SaaS provider always takes care of the operation and maintenance of the software at the same time. In addition, no local installation of the software is necessary.
