Solution as a Service: What is it?

Solution as a service is a new approach to cloud computing that delivers all aspects of an IT solution integrated as one offer. Solution as a service looks to integrate disparate systems, improve project risks and reduce time to value.

What is Solution as a Service?

Today’s cloud vendors typically focus their products on one layer of the cloud computing stack (IaaS, PaaS and SaaS), where they specialize. Solution as a Service is different because it delivers all aspects of cloud computing, integrated as one offer. The solution is then delivered as a subscription service.

For example, when a customer wants to move and operate applications on the cloud they might purchase and integrate a range of stand-alone technologies (commonly referred to as a “solution”). This approach often involves an in-house project or system integration consultants. It can be a costly and time-consuming process. Project risks can be significant as each solution is custom made.

Instead of hiring a system integrator or undertaking a complex in-house cloud development project, a Solution as a Service provider will deliver all the components required for cloud operations pre-integrated in a subscription model.
