SaaS Framework

What is the SaaS framework?

The utilization of SaaS in all spheres of businesses skyrocketed in the past few years. This trend will surely continue in the next few years because the core elements of SaaS provide organizations with more efficiency and productivity. So we will talk today about three core parts that make SaaS applications so attractive to businesses across all industries.  

Software architecture

One of the main reasons why the SaaS framework open-source model is so attractive for organizations is because of its multi-user software architecture. This basically means that multiple users can use the same instance of an application. Availability has thus become all-inclusive and much smoother and easier for companies to deal with. Before this, in the traditional model, a single instance could only be used to serve one customer, making it a nightmare if a company needed to use the same program across the team.

The multi-user model is also way cheaper than the traditional one because software maintenance is shared among all users. Additionally, software updates are also way simpler to implement, because the provider shares all the necessary updates with users. The old way meant that users have to individually install and update all the changes made by the provider. Multi-user (also known as “multi-tenant”) software SaaS architecture removes pressure from the company’s IT teams by doing the annoying task of upgrading and patching.

So, to highlight once again the primary benefits of SaaS application architecture:

  • Helps companies in the utilization of their resources more  effectively 
  • Costs of maintenance and SaaS development framework are lower than traditional delivery models
  • Possibility of wide customization

Various pricing models

Unlike old delivery models, the SaaS framework allows companies to choose from a plethora of different pricing models, features, and functionalities. Different organizations demand different needs. Thanks to this dynamic pricing, companies pay only for what they need.

Each SaaS provider has pricing models that are all tailored to customer needs, whether it is a large or small organization. For many, there is the possibility of making special arrangements that remove all unnecessary or add all the necessary features within the program. Many companies are also left with the option of amending an existing arrangement because the business needs and existing conditions have changed compared to the situation at the time of concluding the contract.

This type of pricing is the complete opposite of earlier models and allows the company to not overpay by buying strict packages that are well above their needs. 

Benefits of SaaS pricing models:

  • More choices for organizations
  • Less-costly and more efficiently than older models

Adaptability 

Probably the feature that most attracts potential users of SaaS services is its capability of quick and easy adaptability. The traditional model would require individual purchases and installations. Another problem would be the fact that the installed application could only be used on that device and by one person.

This framework is also more than capable of keeping pace with business, unlike the on-premise application model. Besides most SaaS services do not have strict limits on the number of users. This is extremely important for companies whose members use the same software tools.

  • Organizations get the requested services easier and faster than before

It provides customers with so many benefits that it is impossible for this trend to even slow down any time soon. With help from SaaS tools, your business objectives became more achievable.
