How Software Fits Into Your Technology Plans

Read below to find out how software fits into your technology plans. Traditionally, if a business needed a solution to a problem, they would research the best technology and buy it. If a company didn’t have the money to buy that solution, they would borrow so their business wouldn’t stagnate. In today’s tech-driven business environment there is a much better option than mortgaging your business just to save it.

It’s the cloud.

Specifically, software-as-a-service (SaaS).

How Does Software Fit Into Your Technology Plans?

What is SaaS?

In order to understand SaaS, you definitely need to have a cursory understanding of the concept of cloud computing. Cloud computing is the use of servers hosted in data centers to provide businesses computing they need through the Internet. It’s as simple as that. Companies create data centers where any business can get the processing, data storage, services, and software utilities they need. Software-as-a-service represents the last part of that. Basically, if you need a piece of software, you can now get it in the cloud.

Why Buy Software In the Cloud?

If you are going to buy software, why not buy a physical copy of the software? You still can, but you will also need the infrastructure to handle the dissemination and computation of data. Plus, you’ll need reliable IT support to ensure the hardware is maintained, the software is patched, and any issues that arise are handled quickly. This can be extremely costly to perfect and secure. 

 Software-as-a-service comes with all this. You will get the software you need without having to take on the responsibility of maintenance, utility costs, and other detriments. In most cases with a SaaS offering, the cloud provider will handle all of the hosting and maintenance costs and bake them into the cost of the service.

So How Does SaaS Work?

SaaS platforms are simple to set up and are completely scalable. This means that if you need five licenses for a certain program and 40 for another, you can get them. You can add or remove users from any of these platforms for any monthly subscription cycle. This allows you to control your business’ computing costs more accurately than if you are trying to maintain multiple servers. 

 Users will sign in using a login and a password. Many of these offerings today come with two-factor authentication (2FA) as an additional security option. At Link High Technologies Inc., we recommend using 2FA on as many online accounts as you can. Once in, they have full access to the software. Users can select the storage they want to use to save and export files created with this software. This gives them full control over their work!

 Your business uses a lot of software. If you could avoid paying for software and turn your computing into an operational expense, it might open up more capital to invest in your vision.
