Solutions from KeyedIn are delivered via Software as a Service (SaaS) because this model offers many advantages to our customers. Cloud-based or SaaS applications are hosted by a service provider and made available to customers entirely on-line. The software is delivered as a service rather than a product, and shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a metered service over the Internet.
This graphic illustrates the cloud from a technology architecture standpoint. While there are a lot of details, the key point is that all this complexity doesn’t have to concern you. All the applications in the cloud area of the diagram are managed by your service providers. KeyedIn takes care of the technology details, leaving you free to concentrate on your core business.
KeyedIn Delivers True SaaS /Cloud Applications
There is a lot of confusion regarding what constitutes a genuine SaaS or Cloud application. Some legacy applications are offered on a “hosting” basis, but have limitations that render them unfit to carry the label of SaaS or Cloud applications. Here are four criteria that define genuine SaaS applications like those offered by KeyedIn:
- Zero Client – there is nothing to install on your server, desktop, laptop, tablet or smart phone.
- Multi-tenant – this means that everyone runs off the same master software code and database – it is not necessary to have your own version of the software.
- Configured, not coded – configuration means that the application can be customized according to your specific requirements, through drop-down menus, screen layouts, field choices, etc. No changes to the code are ever required, making upgrades simple and painless.
- Internet access – All you need to access the application is a Web browser and access to the Internet – nothing else is required.
