It's a part of the trio, between Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service. Believe it or not, SaaS emerged with the early computers of the 1960s. Ever since IBM established the concept of software as a service (SaaS), the trend has come a long way from supplanting the retail software model to enabling companies to access their data on the cloud. Today, credits to internet and global communications technologies, it has never been more popular. More web businesses are adopting subscription business models to deliver their products or services to customers. The benefits of subscription business model are clear: steady cash flow, predictable inventory requirements and reduced cost of acquiring customers. The subscription industry is rapidly changing and industry observers predict a shift from subscription economy to consumption economy. With the launch of Amazon Web Services (AWS), suppliers of SaaS have moved on to public clouds. Apart from start-ups and small companies, category experts predict that 2019 will witness larger businesses like `Boeing' and `Capital One' taking the plunge into the public cloud sector. Google reports that SaaS will contribute to more than 75 percent of public cloud revenues, driving the global SaaS industry to USD 132 billion revenue by 2020.
