Core dna digital experience platform (DXP) is a Software as a Service platform.
Software as a Service (SaaS) is a way of delivering applications over the Internet through a subscription fee model instead of through traditional on-premises, licensed software models of the past.
Instead of installing and maintaining software platforms, software-as-a-service is accessed via the Internet, eliminating complex computing infrastructure provisioning and maintenance tasks.
SaaS applications are sometimes called web-based software, on-demand software, or hosted software. Whatever the name, SaaS applications run on a SaaS provider’s servers. The provider manages access to the application, including security, availability, and performance.[Read more]
Although SaaS applications such as Core dna DXP are ‘multi-tenanted’, users can easily customize applications to fit their business processes without affecting the common infrastructure.
Because there is a separation between that front-end experience layer and the Core dna DXP platform, clients can create their own interconnections using APIs and plugin to third-party systems.
Additionally, because of the way SaaS is architected, these customizations are unique to each company or user and are always preserved through upgrades. That means SaaS providers can make upgrades more often, with less customer risk and much lower adoption cost.[Read more]
Core dna is built as a multi-tenant platform. All users of Core dna login from a single login screen.
A multi-tenant architecture such as Core dna means that all users and applications share a single, common infrastructure and code base that is centrally maintained.
Because Core dna clients are all on the same infrastructure and code base, Core dna can innovate more quickly and save the valuable development time previously spent on maintaining numerous versions of outdated code.[Read more]
SaaS application 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 with out 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.[Read more]
Software as a Service provides companies numerous benefits. At a high level, SaaS provides companies:
For many organizations the need for a Content Management System (CMS) boils down to two main factors;
However, it is important to recognize that CMS solutions themselves have also evolved to the point where they are now:
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.[Read more]
Reduce your labor costs with pre-built applications and removing backend development, saving you money when you build your site, and in ongoing maintenance.
SaaS platforms are delivered for a fixed monthly subscription cost which allows you to pay for what you need and use. Move to a consumption based model, like Core dna, and away from large capital expenditures.
