SaaS or On Premise? What are the differences between these two architectures? Should one be preferred?
Saas solutions: payment of a subscription
The SaaS architecture allows a software solution to be used online, anywhere and anytime, from a browser.
How does it work?
The software is outsourced and accessible by network, for a subscription with the editor/host, on any browser.
- Fully digitalized solution
- Maintenance and updates provided by the service provider
- Data access: Cloud computing
- Turnkey solution
- Data protection depends on the provider
- Offshore data
On-premise solutions: purchase of a license
On-premise solutions are software whose architecture is physically present within a company.
How does it work?
The software is settled on the company’s servers which must first purchase a license from the publisher in order to use the software.
- Remote access possible
- Maintenance and updates depend on the internal IT department
- Data access: even without internet
- In-house data security
- Data hosted on site
