Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud deployments are becoming increasingly common among businesses, marking a shift in data management infrastructure practices.
Figures compiled by industry analyst Gartner at its Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference held in London this week (November 24th and 25th) showed 45 per cent of businesses employing cloud SaaS are doing so to make overall savings on IT expenditure.
Joanne Correia, research vice president at Gartner, stated there has been a real transition over recent years that has seen SaaS take the lead over infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) models.
“This is an affirmation that more businesses are comfortable with cloud deployments beyond the front office running sales force automation and email,” she argued.
Indeed, cloud SaaS infrastructure is now being used to manage projects that are both mission-critical and production grade, marking a considerable evolution for the technology in recent years.
