The advantages of software as a service, SaaS, are numerous. On the one hand, sophisticated business applications, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM), are available to companies without the resources to purchase, deploy and manage the necessary infrastructure and software. On the other hand, it is very easy to "mobilise" staff, as users have access to both these applications and data from any computer or mobile device connected to the Internet. In addition, there is no need to bring in qualified staff to manage the security aspects of mobile computing.
One of the exponents of this technology is Onna Technologies.
