If you’re in the business world and you haven’t heard of SaaS, you’re living under a rock.

As a licensed-and-delivered software, companies are leveraging SaaS to meet a variety of corporate needs as a cost-effective, scalable and flexible alternative to on-premises solutions.

In fact, SaaS is expected to represent 85% of all new software applications by this year, growing at five times the pace of on-premise solutions.
