The much talked about benefits of the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model are fueling widespread adoption of Cloud-computing products in the life sciences industry. But how does it work exactly? And what advantages are there?
Traditionally, clients purchase a software product from a vendor and install it on their systems. They then need to maintain and upgrade that product over time, and manage the IT infrastructure required to serve users.
With SaaS, clients simply purchase a subscription to use a product on an ongoing basis. The vendor is responsible for maintaining and updating the product and IT infrastructure.
Top five benefits of the BaseCase Software-as-a-Service model
Following the SaaS model, BaseCase products are hosted remotely, and BaseCase is responsible for maintaining and upgrading the network and servers. This reduces your workload and saves you time.
It’s easily scalable. Building up or reducing capacity is risk-free, and as simple as changing your subscription package.
BaseCase maintains its products and keeps them up-to-date at all times, so you’re always running the latest version, without any disruptive or expensive upgrades.
SaaS users share a secure Cloud-based network, and so benefit greatly from economies of scale. Subscribers get access to robust, world-class IT infrastructure at a reduced cost.
The SaaS model is flexible and adaptable, enabling users to experiment with different configurations and implement new processes dynamically.
