Software Models

Software as a Service (SaaS) Model (Also Known As A Cloud Solution)

IOTIS’s Software as a Service model provides a complete solution for a fixed monthly/annual fee.  IOTIS assumes the responsibility for providing the application, database software, server equipment, internet connectivity, security, and backup of the system.  The SaaS model includes installation of upgrades and patches.  Clients administer and operate the application using a standard web browser.

Software License Model (Self- Host)

IOTIS’s Software License Model provides clients the ability to purchase the software application and control the operation of the system, a variety of options for hosting and services are available in this model.

Hosting Options:

1.    IOTIS can provide enterprise class hosting as outlined in the SaaS model above.

2.    Clients can host and operate the application on their web server, assuming the responsibility for providing server equipment, database software, internet connectivity, security, and backup.  Compatible hardware and software requirements depend on the solution chosen by client.

3.    Clients can secure the services of a third party hosting company to host the application.  Clients or the hosting company would have responsibility for providing server equipment, database software, Internet connectivity, security, and backup.  Compatible hardware and software requirements depend on the solution chosen by client.

Remote System Management Services:

In the event our clients choose to host the application(s) outside IOTIS’s data center, they will receive IOTIS’s Remote System Management Services to install and support the remotely hosted application(s).  Remote management includes initial configuration of the applications and installation of all upgrades and patches.
