Nowadays, companies are applying Software-as-a-Service model to just about everything, from core business functions, including IT, to industry-specific processes. Have you ever thought about building your own Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business?
Since more and more businesses are moving to SaaS, you also can create your own service by using Drupal. In this article we will discuss Drupal’s possibilities as a Software as a Service and its benefits. We have a recipe for your success!
What Is SaaS?
Let’s start from the very beginning. Software as a Service (SaaS) can be any cloud service where consumers are able to access software applications over the Internet. It doesn’t matter whether you work individually or in organization, you can use SaaS for a wide range of tasks. Google and Facebook are examples of SaaS. Software as a Service is not a traditional software application because you don’t have to download it on your computer and you rent, rather than buy it. Now that you understand the term better, let’s move further.
Using Drupal for SaaS
Drupal is highly empowered with contributed modules, so it is capable of doing everything you want. First and foremost, Drupal can be impressively fast – right from installing it to adding modules of varying complexities. All your ideas and wishes can be implemented with quick customizations and a rich variety of modules available.
If you eventually decide to choose Drupal for your SaaS, you may be sure that your service will be a high quality and not vulnerable to crashes. You could rely on any number of well managed modules in Drupal to get the job done!
