Software as a service (SaaS)

Software as a Service (SaaS) makes use of a cloud computing infrastructure to deliver one application to many users, regardless of their location, rather than the traditional model of one application per desktop. It allows activities to be managed from central locations in a one-to-many model, including architecture, partnering, and management characteristics.


Digital transformation is not simply about technology. It’s not a product or a package—it’s a state of mind. It’s asking ourselves how can we do what we do for the people who need it… but better. It's about bringing together people, data, and processes to capture new opportunities and deliver improved visibility in a trustworthy dependable way.
