The expansion of the Internet in the 1990s led to a new class of centralized computing called “Application Service Provider” (ASP). PMs have offered companies the service of hosting and managing specialized business applications with the aim of reducing costs through centralized administration and by specialization of the solution provider in a specific business application. Two of the world`s biggest pioneers and ASP were USI, headquartered in Washington, DC, and Futurelink Corporation, headquartered in Irvine, California.  Most SAS software is not subject to additional fees for technical support. Fees for paid technical support services are set out in the license agreement. OpenSaaS refers to Software as a Service (SaaS) based on open source code. Much like SaaS applications, Open SaaS is a web application hosted, supported and maintained by a service provider. While the roadmap for Open SaaS applications is defined by the user community, product updates and extensions are handled by a central vendor. The term was coined in 2011 by Dries Buytaert, the creator of the Drupal content management framework.  SaaS is considered part of cloud computing, along with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Desktop as a Service (DaaS), , Managed Software as a Service (MSaaS), Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS), Datacenter as a Service (DCaaS) and INFORMATION Technology Management as a Service (ITMaaS). In case of non-compliance with this obligation, a credit of 5% per hour of downtime is granted to each user concerned, up to the level of the service at its monthly price.
Notification of the incident begins with confirmation from our certified monitoring platform and credit can be claimed via a support ticket at the billing center. The Telecommunications Relay Service makes it possible to make and receive calls from people with a hearing or vocal disability using a telex (TTY) or other text input device. It allows SAS`s technical support team to communicate with customers with hearing or voice impairments. Availability of this service may vary by country or region. Software as a Service essentially expands the idea of the ASP model. However, the term Software as a Service (SaaS) is often used in more specific settings: Remote Support is not suitable for all technical support tracks and is only used for the types of services described in the General Support Services section. A notable review of SaaS comes from Richard Stallman of the Free Software Foundation, who calls it a software replacement service (SaaSS).  He considers the use of SaaSS to be a violation of the principles of free software.  According to Stallman: Software as a Service Data Escrow is the process in which a copy of critical software application data is kept with an independent third party. As with Escrow source code, where the software`s critical source code is stored with an independent third party, SaaS-Data-Escrow applies the same logic to data in a SaaS application. It enables organizations to protect and insure all data that is in SaaS applications and protect it from data loss.
 In some cases, SAS software is supported on an operating system, Java application server, Java Development Kit (JDK), or Java runtime Environment (JRE), although one-third of that software has removed support. . . .
