Web Apps

Traditionally you will have purchased and installed software to use on your computer to do things such as word processing, spreadsheets or accounting. These can be quite expensive and then you need to update them at more expense every 2-3 years. In Cloud Computing, you use Software As A Service (SaaS) where where you purchase a licence to use a web application.  Web applications are generally paid for per month per user.  So typically, a web app to manage your customer database (a CRM) may cost $10-$15 per month for each user as opposed to up to $5000 for CRM software you install.
