    According to OSWAL report, The Indian software-as-a-service (SaaS) ecosystem is expected to grow rapidly and increase its share of global SaaS to 4-5 percent (from about one percent at present), translating to a $50-70 billion revenue opportunity by calendar year 2030. Reports say that India has the third largest SaaS ecosystem globally, after the US and China. Last few years saw tremendous rise of SAAS and has transformed software industry and other huge enterprises it serves, thus emerging as one of the biggest disrupters in the global energy technology. SaaS has rapidly become the software delivery model of choice and preferred alternative to legacy, on premise products with the accelerated pace of growth of cloud computing. The SAAS market is expected to double in size by 2025, and continue growing from there to about $800 billion in revenue by the end of the decade. While SAAS is continuing its dominance, the IT department would be needed to be more agile and proactive instead of depending on reactive models. During migration to cloud, companies will undergo tremendous challenges of compliance and data security. SaaS offers instant decision making, cost-effectiveness, low risk and greater flexibility, among other features. Compared to traditional models, SaaS offers ease of use and faster application deployment because the application is already installed and configured.
