S+S and SaaS – A Brief Comparison

Though the architecture S+S and SaaS , sound very similar , there are several differences .

For the common people
SaaS – Software which completely based on the web
S+S – Collaboration of desktop software ( offline ) and services ( maybe
web or other wireless services )

Technical
SaaS – Mostly revolves around the REST API.
S+S – Not entirely built around the REST API, though thin clients may access REST to make use of the services.

An example of transition from SaaS to S+S can be found here.
