The software as a service (SaaS) industry has experienced only steady, constant growth ever since it was introduced in the 1960s. A report notes that SaaS is progressing at a rapid speed, expanding “five times faster than the software market as a whole”. Another report predicts that the continuous growth of the SaaS industry will lead to a total of $116 billion in 2020. This trend says a lot about how SaaS will continue to dominate the market. And no wonder: Every business requires software.
Through software, data and services can be quickly accessed as long as the device being used is connected to the Internet. With software, your company can run smoothly and efficiently.
For example, the main platform in e-commerce is the software because it is where shopping and transactions are made. Another example is how companies in general need software as an organizational tool so that tasks, such as finance management, are more securely and accurately done. Software can also help companies with their customer service, internal communications, and time management.
Some of the primary industries that SaaS helps are:
- Healthcare and Medicine
- Non-Governmental and Nonprofit Organizations
These industries require bulks of data to be stored, processed, and analyzed on time, which can presently be achieved only through optimized software.
Internally, software has a role to play in virtually every department of a company:
- Human Resources can keep track of their employees speedily and easily;
- Finance can trace and update where the company’s finances go, and;
- Marketing can obtain data that will help them strategize better.
But developing software can be tricky for a company that does not have any experience in programming, and it will be especially challenging if the company does not have the hardware to execute it in the first place.
According to a survey conducted in 2014, more than 250 out of the 539 global business executives said the “implementation costs for adopting new cloud-based software was the most challenging aspect of cloud deployment”. Some of the key concerns involved data protection, integration to existing structures, and implementation costs.
How Outsourcing SaaS Can Help Your Company
Aside from the very obvious benefit of price, outsourcing can help your company through the manpower and hardware already in place. This significantly eliminates the extra work you need to do if you’re going to develop software internally.
As previously mentioned, one of the main challenges of executives when implementing software is ensuring that their data is protected from security breaches. By outsourcing a software development firm, their team’s experience and skills can guarantee your data’s privacy remains intact.
Additionally, outsourcing SaaS to a software development firm means the equipment needed to develop programs is already available, effectively avoiding needless expenditure by the company.
