Advantages of SaaS , Software as a service, and Cloud computing


Welcome to the world of SaaS , Cloud Computing and Software as a service. Today we will discuss the advantages of all these in an organized way. Let us begin with categorizing the IT scenario as a whole.

1. Programming:-

Cloud computing, SaaS , and Software as a service all refer to a common IT environment, which is remote database hosting.  Rich internet application is centrally loaded on the server which typically has single application performing with different logic for different types of business scenarios. The agility of the database is the buzzword of future rich internet applications because of different types of business processes. Programming takes care of the business agility.

2. Security:-

Database security all depends on how the service provider is handling the same which in turn also depends which database is used.  The database makes a big difference. If database is prone to attacks then the software will also be prone to attacks. So it is better to use well-known databases like Oracle or SQL Server for cloud computing.  There are several patches which needs to be applied which are provided by the database software from time to time which make the Database more secure on the cloud.

3. Anywhere Access:-

Anywhere access is the biggest advantage of cloud computing and software as a service architecture. As the database is hosted on the server, we can access our database by just logging in the URL given by the service provider and gain access to our data and application.  We need to have only the web browser which is normally available free of cost on any operating system. Operating system is also no more an issue for software as a service as only the browser is used to access the web application.

4. No more software Maintenance:-

For Desktop applications, one of the biggest worries of the customers were to maintain the application and see to it that it performs well from all the attacks in the network and also they need to concentrate on the upgrades and customization at the same time.  Training is also one of the big issues for desktop applications. When we consider the desktop applications from the application service provider angle, we notice that, the implementation is the biggest hurdle in front of the service provider. Geo location also adds fuel to the same. The cost of the service provider exponentially grow from customer to customer. All this cost has to be contributed from the customers in the end. In case of a web application, this is no more an issue. The application service provider can update the application in a common way for all his customers in just a click of the mouse. This definitely adds up to the profitability and performance of the application service provider, the benefit in turn is passed on to the customers, and the customers in the end enjoy low-cost solutions in the long run.

5. No upfront fees :-

For desktop applications, customers are required to invest heavily on the software cost, hardware cost, including the maintenance of the hardware, and see to it that the hardware is in tune with the latest version of the OS and the software. The memories of the desktop computers are also fine tuned to suit the application speed.  This requires a big cost to be spent by the customers, and the payback period of the customer investment is very long. The customer is also taking the risk of non-performance of the software while investing in any software.  The customer most often facilitates a separate IT department to look after all these issues, which again involves huge cost. Whereas, in case of software as a service, the customer can try the web application as a demonstration over the website and check the suitability of the application to their business process, negotiate well with the service provider for customizations, need not invest heavily on the hardware, as nowadays any hardware is suitable to run a browser at great speed, only the internet speed is the constraint here. Secondly, the customers also has no cost to purchase the software, because the customer is paying monthly rental as much as he use the application. That’s Great ! So software as a service is pay as you go model. Customer has every freedom to use the software only as much as he wants to use, and not beyond that. So he need to pay only for that time frame for which he is using it.

6. No per seat licensing:-

This is a bit debatable issue. Some service providers do not charge on per seat licensing, while others do. In my view, if the service provider issues one user name and password for a single user type authentication, there may be more than one users logging in by that user name and password in the said organization from any browser and run the application at the same time. So when it comes to web applications, in my view, per seat licensing is just left on paper, while the actual scenario may be something different.  So this gimmick should be explained by the customer to the service provider and get him down to no per seat licensing model.

What’s your take as a customer ? Do let me know in the poll.

 

Effective ways to manage your school activity by using SaaS


In golden old days, school was getting managed properly because the students were limited and the school scenario as a whole was limited. Everyone was having their own conveyance and were coming from nearby places to attend school. Parents were finding time to visit school and see the progress of their kids and have long hour discussion with teachers and take corrective actions, problems with students were also not so serious then. So there was absolutely nothing to manage as such, just intimate the fees orally and it was paid ! The outstanding fees was easily calculated by the clerk !

Things have changed now, due to globalization, schools have grown beyond limits, the campus of the school have grown, the teachers and students have grown due to increasing population. The office staff have grown to accommodate the increased work pressure. Students are now coming from far place due to admission problems, migration and other problems. So the school scenario now is not limited to a local student, or student staying locally. The parents expectation levels have also increased, due to increased rush hour and changed way of living, parents are expecting some resources delivered by the school or privately managed vehicle to pick up their kids in a comfortable way everyday to school. Sometimes parents are also not able to give lunch to kids, so they expect some canteen to be there in school, with supply of good food. Most of the times, parents are not able to join kids in his territory, due to unavoidable circumstances, parents expect school to have some hostel accommodation also. Students problem areas have also grown, parents now cannot visit during the rush hour every now and then to the school, and know the progress, complaints, attendance about their kids, they expect something to be communicated reliably to them, over their cellphone if any untoward thing happens with their kids. Things have changed completely due to this globally changing attitude.

Is your school ready to face and accommodate such drastic change, or are you missing on something very important  ?

When it comes to managing a school in a better way,  previously everyone looked at a computer, and they expect the computer to do the rest. Up till last decade or so, the schools were able to manage it in a better way, by taking help of desktop computer. But there were other factors also, which were affecting the schools and increasing the expenses in a major way, like Software Cost, Hardware Cost, Operating system cost, Annual Maintenance cost, software per seat licensing. The schools also required to frame an IT department and employees in that department to maintain the software and hardware aspects of their department, the expenses grew in a compounded way, which definitely reduced the margins to run the school. In spite of doing so many things and spending so much on it, the problems of viruses also wiped the data often, which did not guarantee the school a reliable data, which was always available.

But things have changed still. Schools expectations have also grown drastically. They need some system by which the computer will have communication with parents, teachers etc. The School wants to use the power of real computing now. But resources is a major hatchback. The school needs to have sophisticated equipments like a costly web server, good client side computers, good software, people to run the software, people to look after the software, the database and the database security. Schools also analyze how communicative the computer is, or is it just a dumb machine working like a workaholic.

It is communication that matters, is your school computer ready to communicate with parents, parents with teachers, school with parent ? Accessible from anywhere ?.  Here comes the SaaS Technology, Welcome to the SaaS Platform ! What is SaaS after all ? It is Software as a Service !  It is like using a software which is already hosted on the servers of your application vendor. it is ready to input your school data, it will communicate in a reliable way, you can see the performance of all your schools and branches from your home !  Your teachers can give marks to their students from home ! And of course, you can communicate anything you wish for your school to anyone you say either by sms or by email, and that too instantly. So what is the point in maintaining all these costly servers and spending in a compounded way, if schools are getting all these facilities without maintaining any software or hardware. Schools save on Software cost, hardware cost , software annual maintenance cost, per seat licensing, and yes, I forgot to mention, it is just for a monthly rent which you have to pay to use the vendor system over his server. Sounds promising, isn’t it ?

Exponential cost to run any IT infrastructure is a history. SaaS is a robust alternative to such an infrastructure. SaaS systems have remained to be plug-in type and subscription based. SaaS has flourished since recent years because it offers great benefits to business of all types. Below are the things which are driving customers to make a SaaS enabled organization and take advantage of the same.

This benefit is available for the customers, and the customers are easily able to analyze the performance of the solution online, and they enter into pay as you go model. This completely eliminates the risk in investing large share of funds in softwares and hardware, which is the groundwork required to run any software.
  3. Painless Upgrades :- When it comes to upgrades, it is the most pathetic situation for desktop softwares. The burden and risk of both the vendor and customer increase a lot into upgrading. Most of the software are not that easily upgraded with minimal groundwork. They most of the times demand changes in database which is most risky venture. Location is also a constraint for upgrades and affects cost in a major way. SaaS is a centralized management system which provides painless upgrades to all the customers in one go, providing seamless upgrades and benefit is passed on to all the customers in a single click.
