SaaS delivery will significantly outpace traditional software product delivery, growing nearly five times faster than the traditional software market.

- Rapid Deployment – Reduced time to implement. Applications can be rolled out whenever you’re ready and across your entire infrastructure.
- Quicker Access to Innovation - Updates and patches are done on the virtual level, no more going from machine to machine.
- Improved Security – Fewer service disruptions and security breaches. In addition, controlled access allows lock-outs for terminated employees.
