SAAS products are a great way to get some awesome software ‘as a service’ by paying a small monthly fee or a per user fee. They have the benefit of being ‘plug & play’ solutions for the problems they solve & are kept up to date with new features & bug fixes.While they come with a lot of benefits, they are also locked in terms of source code & have limitations on how far you can customise them.
The Joomla ecosystem with its scalable & modular architecture & a large vendor marketplace of free and paid extensions offers a great alternative which can bring you the benefits of SAAS without having to compromise on flexibility or code & vendor lock in. You can create targeted solutions for various Industries which are a viable alternative to SAAS offerings giving more or less all the benefits of continuous evolution SAAS products offer while retaining the freedom to host it & modify it as needed .
In this session, explore how Joomla can help you create credible opensource based alternatives to SAAS and explore a specific use case of how we helped several Associations & Not for profits through our Joomla based offerings.
