Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has been defined as software deployed as a hosted service and accessed over the Internet.  This paper covers the democratization and monetization of software services and uses cloud computing as the primary delivery vehicle.  Cloud computing represents a contextual shift in how computers are provisioned and accessed.  Opportunity and value exists in software-as-a-service for providers and clients, and the economic and technical essentials are reviewed in this paper.
