Welcome to the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Showplace!
Software-as-a-service (SaaS), and a growing array of cloud computing solutions, is one of the fastest growing segments of the information technology (IT) industry because it provides a more cost-effective alternative for enterprises to achieve their business objectives than traditional packaged applications.
The SaaS Showplace® was founded by THINKstrategies in 2006 to help IT/business decision-makers find SaaS solutions to meet their corporate needs; help SaaS providers promote their offerings; and help others learn about this revolutionary marketplace. Today, the Showplace is the largest vendor-independent, online directory of SaaS solutions with over 1300 company listings, and the highest ranked SaaS resource center on all the major search engines.
