In the early 2000s, improvements in software technology and financial models of software companies led to the creation of a concept called Software as a Service (SaaS). Before SaaS, a subscription for using software was uncommon, but now subscription for use software is widely used. Almost all leading software companies have integrated SaaS into their business strategy, leading to SaaS becoming the largest market segment on public cloud services and generating hundreds of millions of dollars in subscription revenue.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has found SaaS products, including platforms and applications, to be patentable subject matter. The USPTO issues hundreds of utility patents for SaaS products every week.
