Welcome to the future! SaaS (Software as a Service) rules the world. When just a few years ago businesses were buying software and installing it in-house, now they're renting it. There's a SaaS for everything. Actually, multiple SaaS for the exact same problem! Even technology companies with expert engineering teams are choosing to use off-the-shelf components (now in the form of SaaS) instead of developing in-house. It makes complete sense to buy something that would cost 100x more to develop in-house.
