‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS) continues to be one of the industry's hottest buzzwords. In fact, the growing popularity of SaaS is forcing IT managers and technology implementers to consider how this new software delivery model might affect their current IT infrastructures, since SaaS and on-premise software are not mutually exclusive.

This month, Ruth Morton, Mark Relph (Microsoft Canada) and Barb Cummings (Brodie Computers Inc.) are discussing the difference between ‘Software as a Service’ and Microsoft’s vision of ‘Software-plus-Services,’ as well as tips on how IT pros can choose the right mix of on-premise, hosted, and client software within an IT environment.
