Cloud Services Collaboration and Productivity (SaaS) Microsoft’s Office Online and Google Docs are online productivity suites for creating documents, presentations, spreadsheets, and other projects. Microsoft and Google offer these apps as part of their respective cloud storage services. Because documents are stored on the cloud, you can access them from any computer or device connected to the Internet. These are examples of SaaS (software as a service), a service of cloud computing that allows access to software using a browser, without the need to install software on a computer or device.

Many providers offer SaaS titles at no cost; others require users to purchase a subscription or pay a fee for the features they use.
