The key reasons SaaS is so popular are its flexibility, accessibility, scalability, security, and consistency. Besides these seven qualities that SaaS offers enterprise companies, there's also increased collaboration with it.
For these reasons, the SaaS market has been booming in recent years and is expected to grow even more in the coming years. The amount that companies are paying on average per application has steadily risen each year and it's forecasted that this growth will continue.

Should SaaS be the future of business? Many people seem to think so. It also seems inevitable considering how many people experienced working from home during the pandemic. Many businesses owners and managers have realized the importance of SaaS within their company and employees now work more efficiently and collaboratively through it.
There are so many new SaaS companies coming out, which is both a good and a bad thing. It’s great because it means there’s so much innovation happening. But as you know, with all this innovation also come strong competition which might end up squashing some interesting startups. We should also be wary of the risks behind using SaaS. It's vital that organizations work with their employees on how to use it properly so they're aware of any potential risks. And they also need to make sure third party SaaS products are approved by their IT departments, otherwise sometime it becomes difficult to maintain the safety of their employees, customers and data.
