What is cloud computing?
Cloud computing refers to the use of networks of remote servers accessed over the internet to store, manage, and process data. It offers customers access to a wide range of technologies while lowering costs and reducing the need for technical expertise. The cloud service market is divided into three primary service models encompassing infrastructure, platforms, and software. Customers are able to choose between private, public, or hybrid cloud deployment depending on their business needs and security concerns.
SaaS: the most widely adopted cloud solutions
In line with increases in companies’ adoption of cloud computing technologies, the worldwide revenue generated from these technologies has increased rapidly in recent years. Software as a Service (SaaS) is the largest segment of the global cloud computing market with revenues of over 100 billion U.S. dollars as of 2019. It is the most widely adopted cloud technology, being now deployed by the majority of organizations globally. Popular applications of SaaS include customer relationship management and enterprise resource planning software.
