The growing popularity of SaaS

Software as a service (SaaS) is known by different names such as on-demand software, web-based software, and hosted software. It is a software licensing model that enables businesses to leverage software on a subscription basis. SaaS applications run on the cloud hosted by the service provider.

Key Statistics to note

Now, when master data management is hosted on the cloud, it is called SaaS MDM or MDM SaaS. Businesses struggling to work on accurate versions of data can leverage SaaS MDM to streamline their data management processes.

Cloud-based MDM vs on-premises MDM

      • SaaS MDM offers enhanced enterprise-grade security measures. Data security lies in the hands of the vendor, and businesses can focus better on growth and expansion. On the contrary, when leveraging on-premises MDM, the security compliance responsibility falls on the organization.

      • Cloud-based MDM seamlessly integrates into the already existing setup. On the other hand, on-premises MDM requires you to take care of all the system upgrades.

      • SaaS MDM is easy to deploy as no on-site installation of hardware is required. In contrast, on-premises MDM is complex as it requires more IT assistance.

Advantages of SaaS MDM

1. Get architectural flexibility


The best aspect about SaaS-based MDM model is that it keeps on delivering new functionalities on a regular basis. Any technological or infrastructural update can be leveraged by the organization as soon as it is available on the cloud. SaaS MDM is usually constructed with combined continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) processes. It helps businesses benefit from the consistent innovation performed by the SaaS MDM vendor.


2. Flatten extra IT expenses


Gone are the times when you had to incur huge expenditures on hardware maintenance. Most SaaS MDM solutions will offer flexible subscription options and enable businesses to utilize technologies as per their unique requirements. They enable you to adopt an operational expenditure model. SaaS-based MDM solution focuses on cost optimization and requires you to pay only for what you leverage. Moreover, it also helps save time that goes into managing infrastructure administration. Companies can focus better on core business operations and facilitate better business reputation.


3. Ensure 100% security
