Featured excerpt:

“As a service refers to a form of service delivery in which the infrastructure used by the client to achieve the desired objective is owned, maintained and operated by a separate institution. Therefore, the user simply “rents” this infrastructure temporarily or as part of a subscription model.

This allows them to enjoy all the benefits without the drawbacks of system maintenance, upgrading, and the cost of acquiring the infrastructure itself. »
