Software as a Service, or SaaS, is a great approach for web content management. It provides all the functionality of a traditional on premises Web CMS without the overhead of purchasing expensive licenses and the cost of managing the server and software environment needed to run your websites. SaaS is definitely about cost-savings, at least upfront, but it's also about handing over the work required to keep your Web CMS environment up and running to people who are experts and leaving your IT resources to look after other important aspects of your business.
