We often come across the term in software Industry as Online Software or Web-based software also at time Cloud based Software
What exactly is the Online , web-based or cloud based software? Is the question which arises in any oneís mind when we come across the above so often.
Online software are basically the software which are installed on the cloud servers, which means that the complete software does not reside on a clientís server or computer , but it is installed on the servers which are remotely located.
This servers acts as a host for the vendorís software, and also stores the data generated by the user during the process of utilizing the softwareA server can be a premises hosted server, which means the location of the server is at the premises where the software is installed alternatively the software is loaded on the remote server also referred as cloud servers, which means that the server is not located at clientís premises but hosted remotely on the cloud.
Another term which we very usually come across is the SAAS which is short from for Software as a Service
This is the term which has arisen out of the fact that in such cases the software is offered by the vendor to their customers as a service since it is usually subscription based software service, wherein the user is charged as per the usage based on the usage period , type of software and various other terms and conditions discussed and agreed between the SAAS provider and the customer
Another question which usually comes in mind is as regards to the concern about data is Data Confidentiality and Data Security of the software installed on cloud servers
The cloud based servers on which the software is installed first of all need to be compliant to all the International norms and adhere to all the specifications as per IT disaster recovery policy
Once the above is ensured as regards to the server, then the data of customers using the software is extremely safe and secure since they usually do not have any human intervene thereby ensuring the possibility of human committed errors to minimum or eliminate the same completely
Once having ensured that the data confidentiality and data security of the software is ensured by way of selecting the cloud servers complaint with all IT norms, IT rules and regulations, the opportunity of itís applications are huge with no limit on the same
