Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications such as Core dna provide access to data from any networked device while making it easier to manage privileges, monitor data use and ensure everyone sees the same information at the same time. You can work with a team in real time without conflicts. 

With the SaaS model, you can customize with point-and-click ease, making the weeks or months it takes to update traditional business software seem hopelessly old-fashioned.

Different from the traditional model, Core dna is a fully managed solution, meaning the application comes fully ready to use and a new website can be up in minutes. This reduces the time spent in installation and configuration and can reduce the issues that can get in the way of the software deployment.

In SaaS, the user does not pay for the software itself. Instead, it works like a rental. They have the authorization to use it for a period of time and pay for the software that they are using. 

A great way to think about SaaS is like going to a public park. You go to the park to enjoy a picnic, play with your dog, have a pickup Frisbee game, etc. You have friends that also use the park. You might use it at the same time, or different times. You get to enjoy the park when you want to and as often as you would like, without having to mow the lawn, water the flowers and maintain the jungle gym. Instead, you pay a fixed amount of taxes per month and for that, the park is available to you anytime. The maintenance is taken care of for you, and local police patrol the area, keeping you and your family safe. 

A “park” meets the key characteristics of the SaaS model.
