Software as a Service (SAAS)
The advancements in software technology and changes in financial models for software companies gave rise to the Software as a Service (SaaS) concept in the early 2000s. Whereas in the 1990s it was not common to pay for a subscription for software, today it is generally accepted and has become a regularity in everyday life. SaaS has been incorporated into the strategy of nearly all leading enterprise software companies. SaaS remains the largest market segment on public cloud services and is forecast to be responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars in subscriptions.
And since SaaS platforms and applications are considered software by the U.S. Patent Office, they are considered patentable matter. Every week, the U.S. Patent Office issues hundreds, if not thousands of SaaS related utility patents.
