What is SaaSS and examples
From the article on GNU.org about SaaSS there are examples of what is or isn't SaaSS. But let's elaborate on that even more so that the table doesn't deviate from its purpose.
The "end-user" or "user" here means someone who won't host an entire server to run a simple software.
- Storing things in a server isn't SaaSS.
- Editing things that are stored in a server, using a online editor, is SaaSS.
- Uploading photos or videos to some publishing website isn't SaaSS.
- Editing photos that will be published in some website, using the site's online editor, is SaaSS.
- Emacs or some other text editor using Google Docs or Google Drive APIs to connect to these and edit documents, isn't SaaSS. Because the editing happens in the text editor, not in Google's online editor.
