SaaS grows with 5 C’s

SaaS architecture and benefits defined.

SaaS (Software as a Service) is the delivery of applications or services over the Internet.  According to, “Growth trends for SaaS are strong” and Gartner Inc. “has predicted that the SaaS market will grow more than 22 percent per year and that by 2011, 25 percent or more of new software systems will be delivered as SaaS applications.”

With an uptick in adoption of SaaS, it is important to review why this service might be better than “shrink-wrap” service, where the customer buys, installs and maintains software itself.

In an article titled, “The Five C’s of SaaS” author John Szczygiel, executive vice president of Brivo Systems LLC, defines the 5 C’s as the way that SaaS addresses the needs of consumers when it comes to “change, compliance, cost, continuity and coverage.” Szczygiel also delves into the potential impact of “Security as a Service” by exploring  the five areas of strategic importance for all organizations (5 C’s).

If you are a software start-up, the SaaS delivery model should be a serious consideration. In order to better understand the basic architecture of SaaS and the 5C’s as they pertain to security, be sure to check out the full, thoughtful and well-written blog (link below).
