FROM GOTS SAAS TO COTS SAAS
Software as a Service (SaaS) is a method of distributing software where a third-party provider hosts applications and makes them available to contracted customers as a service via the internet. These applications are sometimes called web-based software, on-demand software, or hosted software. Regardless of the name, all SaaS applications run on a provider’s server. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) notes that in a SaaS environment, the capability provided to the consumer is to use the provider’s applications running on a cloud infrastructure. The applications are accessible from various client devices through a thin client interface such as a web browser. DOWNLOAD
