The Rise of Cloud Computing and SaaS (Software as a Service)

The concept of cloud computing is very popular in the present day with millions of people every day storing and accessing data programmes over the internet. Applications such as Google drive, Microsoft’s one drive and Dropbox have become very commonplace. With SaaS (Software as a Service) this describes any cloud service where consumers can access software applications over the internet. The most current example of a company which has thrived in this space is Marc Benioff’s Salesforce.com platform.
