But before digging deep into the trends, let’s first have a clear idea about what SaaS is. 

What Is SaaS?

SaaS stands for ‘Software as a Service.’ It is a cloud-based software licensing service model on a subscription basis. In simple language, SaaS is a business model that provides different software-based services to its customers on a pay-per-use method or monthly or annual agreement. Microsoft, Netflix, and Zoom are all examples of SaaS. These SaaS applications are also known by other names, like- hosted software, on-demand software, or web-based software. 

Major Features Of SaaS

Before exploring the trend that SaaS is bringing in 2023, let us first know the major features of SaaS as a business model- 

Multi-Tenancy Model: Serving multiple customers is the major feature of SaaS. With a multi-tenancy model, SaaS serves many customers under a single software application. Each customer is known as a tenor, where they get customization facilities to a limited section. 

Subscription Model: SaaS charges their customers on a subscription basis. It allows the customer to take service whenever required and cut off when desired. Here are the most common subscription models for SaaS:

  • Freemium & Premium
  • Fixed 
  • Charging based on the number of users
  • Charging based on customer usage
  • Monthly & annual subscriptions

Automated Upgrade: Customers don’t require buying software services frequently to keep up with the newly added features. SaaS has automatic feature updating functions that provide customers with the latest features within the same package.

Scalability: SaaS is scalable, allowing the company to add more features and services. So, they can bring scalability to their product by approaching customers with newness and customization facilities. 

Accessibility: Companies can easily access software services anywhere and anytime. Besides, it supports mobile applications, making the platform highly accessible. 

Security: In SaaS marketing, cyber security is prioritized like any other digital platform. Many protocols are adopted to ensure secure transactions and data transfer and maintain customer privacy. 

Like the passing years, SaaS is bringing a new trend in 2023 that will also process its growth in the coming years. Let’s know these trends that SaaS is ready to set for 2023- 

1. Artificial Intelligence Leading SaaS

Thus this combo will benefit logistics, healthcare, finance, retail, and all other industries. 

2. The Evolution of Machine Learning Into MLaaS

Evolution of machine learning into MLAAS

Machine learning will grow significantly in the upcoming year, widening the scope of SaaS. It can be taken as a sub-branch of AI, already empowering SaaS with better outcomes. The demand for machine language for operating SaaS is rapidly increasing. Thus, companies now provide machine language as a service (MLaaS). 

Standard Features of MLaaS Provider

  • Data pre-processing
  • Facial recognition for ultimate data security
  • Data visualization
  • Natural language processing (NLP)
  • Predictive and preventive analytics

The pandemic further enforced the growth of MLaaS, which will grow to $12.6 billion by 2026. Salesforce is a shining example of SaaS that has transferred machine language to MLaaS. It is now the world’s most powerful CRM that effectively manages software and applications to serve its customers.  

3. SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM)

Saas security posture management

The tendency of rapid digital transformation of business and currency has increased concerns with SaaS security. About 85% of the companies are at top risk with SaaS micro configuration. But it is one of the biggest challenges for the security team to configure all internal SaaS apps and so, regarding SaaS security, SSPM is the ultimate solution. It is an automated security tool that detects misconfigurations, excess permission policies, unnecessary user accounts, and other issues regarding cloud security. Thus, the organization can protect its data and services. 

What Upgraded Features Will SSPM Bring in 2023 & Beyond? 

  • Visibility to end-user activities: The SaaS security posture management (SSPM) will soon include advanced technology to monitor end-user activity. Thus, the organizations will quickly identify the abnormalities, possible insider threats, or accounts that have been hacked.
  • Control over data sharing: Cloud security posture management (CSPM) makes data sharing easy and quick. Anyone can share the information within or outside the organization. But with SSPM, you can control the data sharing. It controls the data users can share within the organizations’ SaaS apps. 
  • Response to Cyber Attack: Cyber attacks are increasing at an alarming rate. Your firm could be destroyed by a successful ransomware assault that targets cloud SaaS data. So to ensure protection from these attacks, SSPM in 2023 or soon will update ransomware detection features and response to cyber-attacks in MLaaS. 

So, SaaS and SSPM will stay parallel and get more advanced in the coming years. This automation of the security system makes the operation of SaaS apps much more convenient and in the upcoming years, we look forward to more updates. 

4. Switching From Horizontal to Vertical SaaS

Switching from horizontal to vertical saas

With the advancement of technology, companies are now focused more on professionalism and regarding standard industrial business, vertical SaaS excels over horizontal platforms. Horizontal SaaS provides common services to a wide audience. In contrast, Vertical SaaS offers specific services for a narrow audience and provides the facilities that their service requires. 

The expertise of a specific industry designs vertical SaaS. For example- healthcare software comes with functionalities that allow them to run their health centers, patient records, treatments, and other sectors. Thus, vertical SaaS offers specialized features that make the user experience smoother. 

Industries from finance to law are all attracted to vertical SaaS thanks to its specialized features. The financial organization has taken the vertical SaaS up by 40%, the media sector by 19%, and government institutions by 16% and if this growth continues, the trend of vertical SaaS will continue in the next year and so far. 

How Vertical Will SaaS Impact 2023?

Vertical SaaS has already started replacing horizontal SaaS and will continue bringing more innovations. Here are the major impact that this trend is going to set in 2023 and in the next coming years- 

  • Industry-Specific Services: Vertical SaaS enables companies to obtain industry-specific customers. It recesses to the audience connected to the product rather than reaching the vast community. It thus arranges the service provided in an organized way focusing on targeted customers. 
  • Transparency In Data Access: Companies will get advanced transparency in data access as Vertical SaaS is positioned into industrial-specific data access. 
  • High Business Value: Vertical SaaS designs software keeping the requirements of a specific sector. Thus, it adds additional value to your business.
  • Customized Solutions: As the demand for vertical SaaS increases, new solutions will emerge to fulfill specific needs. Thus, new categories will be added, enhancing the accessibility of the customer. 

5. Data-as-a-Service (DaaS)

Data as a service

Storing data has always been an integral part of all business sectors. But due to digitalization and the rustic revolution of technologies, massive changes are noticed in the data storage section. Currently, in-house data storage is not productive and gives no valid security. So, to meet these lackings, DaaS has emerged as a major trend in 2023 and will lead in the coming years. 

DaaS includes data collection, storage, analytics, and integration software services. This allows organizations to manage their data in an arranged way, ensuring secure storage. Thus, DaaS provides the company’s quick access to the information that accelerates the strategy and decision-making scheme. Besides, it saves time and minimizes workload. Microsoft, Facebook, IBM, and Google are the major players in this industry.

The recent pandemic was a blooming period for DaaS when online platforms became mainstream for business. It greatly impacted the global DaaS market, creating a growth expectancy of $56.85 billion within 2023-2027 and as the competition is growing, there is no doubt this trend will stay bringing more advanced features in the coming years. 

6. API Development Will Improve SaaS Usability

API Development will improve

API stands for Application Programming Interface, a crucial part of software development for years and with the spread of SaaS solutions and market adoption, the need to integrate them into an established business system arose. But the problem is that the SaaS initially didn’t come with a complete integration solution. To enable the cloud solution, they would approach third-party APIs. 

With this increasing demand for APIs, SaaS is developing its integration capabilities and thus, in the coming years, the usability of SaaS will become more convenient and smoother. 

7. Migrating from Saas to PaaS

Migrating from SaaS to PaaS

As innovation continuously increases in the SaaS sector, developers will focus more on user experience. So, companies will soon migrate from software to a platform as a service (PaaS) to add original services to the customers. The world’s leading SaaS examples, like Salesforce and Box, have already launched PaaS-based services and no doubt, it is going to be a trend for 2023. The facilities that PaaS is going to bring to the table for future years- 

  • Motivating Startups & New Ventures: The major feature of the PaaS trend in 2023 will be motivating startups and new ventures to reach their ROI at the least time possible.
  • Enhancing Business Agility: With the development of PaaS, you will get creative space to take your business to the next level. Migration from SaaS to PaaS will widen the digital business platform. It gives the customers the best user experience with advanced features and functionality. 
  • Security: PaaS provides your service with a regular automated update. This adds an extra advantage of security to your business model. 
  • Scalability: To bring scalability to your business, flexibility, and robustness in service is very important and switching to PaaS will bring you this. Companies can easily scale their business using a platform as a service. 

8. Focus On Engagement Boosting Through SaaS

Engagement Boosting Through SaaS

As the SaaS market expands quickly, service providers focus on increasing engagement at the best level possible. To make this successful, the trend of customization tools will explode in 2023 and the coming year. 

Prioritizing engagement and loss reduction will lead to new trends like personalized onboarding tutorials and videos and improved platform features. It will further open up experimenting with creative approaches to reach the maximum customer possible. Thus, businesses can meet their service requirements while streamlining their internal processes.

Boosting interaction will further motivate providers to put users’ needs at the center of their inventions, thoughts, and actions. So, this will be one of the top SaaS trends influencing the market in 2023 and beyond.

The facilities and services that SaaS provides to its customers are now impossible when going for in-house models. As predicted, the size of the SaaS market is expected to increase from $251.17 billion in 2022 to $883.34 billion by 2029. So, now you know how SaaS impacts the digital marketing system and to make this impact more fruitful, more prominent SaaS companies are approaching the smaller companies to deliver their services to the target customers faster. 

This also brings profitability to the smaller companies as they get scopes to contact wider audiences. Their collaboration with bigger players in the industry is also bringing profitability to their business. They can also advance their future projects by drawing on the fame and success of larger players.

2023 is ready to see multiple mergers between companies in the SaaS market. However, it is not always necessary for big and small companies to form alliances. But what is more important is that both companies should be benefited. For example, CRM behemoth Salesforce paid $27.7 billion for Slack’s popular workplace software in 2021. This merger benefits both companies because Salesforce will provide better communication skills to their users, while Slack will be able to compete more effectively with Microsoft Teams. This deal has set an excellent live example for setting the trend in the SaaS market of 2023 and beyond. 

10. The Rise of SaaS Superapps

It allows users to enjoy personalized app experiences, giving them a significant competitive advantage. 

Understanding that a super app is more than just an app that combines multiple tools and services into a single UI is critical. You get numerous independent interfaces under a single program with SaaS super apps. This will definitely be a game-changing trend in the upcoming years!

11. Popularity of Low-Code & No-Code Platform

Low code and no code platform

Coding is undoubtedly the core technical part of building a SaaS platform. But to make software building and developing easier, low-code & no-code will be on trend in 2023 and the coming years. 

By writing less code to create the framework of your platform, technical employees can devote more of their time to promoting innovation. This will surely give them a competitive advantage to focus more on the business. 

In 2023, another trend-setting approach toward SaaS is the popularity of no-code SaaS. The features of the no-code SaaS will boost output and speed up the entry of new players. Thus, it will bring the emergence of innovative new solutions into the SaaS market. 

Benefits that Low-code & No-Coe Will Bring to SaaS:

  • Promoting innovation and digital development

Industry analysts predict that in 2023 and beyond, investments and value in analytics-centric SaaS platforms will increase by many times. Almost all SaaS platforms will incorporate analytics in the coming years and this will create BI and data-driven choices even more potent for anyone trying to beat their competitors. 

SaaS models’ centralization will allow users to access data at any moment and from any device. Thanks to high-tech software tools and web resources that can provide each team member access to their analytics.

13. MarTech Stack Will Reach Next Level Via SaaS

Undoubtedly, a business needs to approach mobile-fast-based SaaS to maximize its ROI most effectively. However, 2023 has already got into the mission of turning desktop-based software into mobile-based and in the upcoming years, this trend will continue it’s way. 

15. Growing Popularity Of Micro SaaS

In the coming years, experts will give special attention to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Language (ML) for automatic cyberattack response. 

17. Protection Against Data Loss and Leaks

Data loss has been one of the significant issues faced by SaaS companies and users for a long time. It could be intentional or accidental data loss or sharing of private data. This happens due to the accessible sharing facilities in cloud SaaS environments. Yet, human error is the top reason for data loss and leaks and with these issues, businesses face a major percentage of losses yearly. That is why a planned backup system is essential.  

Businesses are now aware of the damages and negative impact of data loss and leaks and so, data leak and loss protection is something that SaaS security professionals should continue to be the trend in 2023 and beyond.

18. Video Marketing Will Now Be Mainstream For SaaS Marketers

Video marketing has been on trend for many years in the digital marketing platform and no doubt, this will create the same buzz in SaaS marketing. Surveys have proved that video marketing is an excellent and successful medium to reach customers most quickly and effectively as possible. About 86% of businesses now use video as a marketing tool and over 96% of companies believe video marketing is important to accelerate ROI. 

But only creating videos and sharing will never bring you the expected result. For that, you need the right platform and the targeted real audience. There is a wide platform open for SaaS marketing. You can showcase your SaaS product on youtube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social media platforms. Here are the ways how video marketing creates a platform for SaaS marketing- 

  • Present updated features.

So, the video marketing craze will continue in 2023 and beyond. SaaS will focus more on video marketing to reach its target customers. Besides, this strategy helps the business to provide its services in the most effective way possible. 

19. SaaS will Focus More On Building Brand Experience

Building brand experience

Customers are now more concerned about branding and modern branding is not limited to just logo stamping. But how can SaaS provide branding experience? 

Customers’ tastes continuously change with the evolving tendency of new trends every second day and with these circumstances, the expectations from SaaS companies are also increasing. The users now seek more facilities and engagement from SaaS. So, branding should be top-notch and in the coming years, SaaS companies will focus more on branding their products to give consumers a luxurious experience. 

SaaS Product Branding Strategies

20. Interest In Feature Marketing Will Increase in SaaS 

interest in feature marketing

About 30,000 new products are launched every year in the SaaS market. But do they all gain success? And are the existing companies growing and keeping their service static? The answer is a big No. A report by McKinsey narrates that 90% of SaaS companies, when their growth rates fall less than 20%. But how to keep up the growth rate? 

Feature marketing is the ultimate solution for SaaS companies to continue their growth in 2023 and the upcoming years. Continuously new products are arriving in the market with the latest technologies and advanced features to compete in the challenging tech market and to stand strong, frequent feature adding or updating features is a must. This allows you to target new keywords, enhance SEO, and create chances to gain new clients.

You can increase overall income, retain current customers, and convert freemium users into paying ones through feature marketing. Another thing that SaaS startups may undertake is to develop add-on tools that complement and improve the core SaaS product. So, feature marketing comes next on our rundown of SaaS trends for 2023 and beyond.

21. Price Optimization Strategies Will Be On Trend 

Price optimization strategies

Pricing has been a significant issue that makes the customer think twice before taking any services. The subscription models that 2021 and 2022 were running were mainly monthly or annual based. But focusing on the consumer’s perspective, price optimization strategy will be on trend for 2023 and in the coming years and SaaS platforms will focus more on increasing usage and decreasing the subscription cost. In doing so, the pay-per-use system also has a chance to evolve in the SaaS market. 

Netflix is a shining example that cut down its pricing to catch up with its competitors. So, if Netflix wants to stay unaffected in the business, it has to increase the number of users by optimizing the pricing. However, reducing pricing is not always right, hampering the quality. But research says that companies with subscription-based models are missing 30% of their growth due to not adopting price optimization strategies. So, in 2023 and the coming year, price optimization will be on trend to keep up with the competitors in the challenging SaaS market. 

22. Implementing Product-led Growth SaaS Model 

Implementing product led growth

Implementing product-led growth means emphasizing the company’s software at the center of the customer experience and the purchasing process. A product-led growth plan relies heavily on the product to do a large portion of the “selling,” including its features, efficiency, and popularity.

In 2023, SaaS companies will likely put the product at the center of all marketing strategies letting the product take the lead. For example, SaaS companies will focus on making the product a freemium marketing tool. More focus will be driven on developing the SaaS product so the consumers are convinced to pay for premium services. Thus, this trend of supplying trial-based products or free usage and switching them to subscription-based customers will be on fire in the coming years. Thus SaaS companies will increase their customer reach organically by implementing a product-led growth strategy. 

23. Remote Work Will Be On Trend 

Remote work will be on trend

“Work From Home” will be the most industry-changing SaaS trend that will flood 2023 and the coming year. After the wave of COVID-19, remote offices have already been in practice and now people are taking the concept seriously. 

Since SaaS is a cloud-based system, many companies are now focusing on hybrid working models and in 2023, we expect more companies to switch to remote working systems. The cloud SaaS solution allows employees to work from anywhere and anytime. No in-house or in-person monitoring is required in this case. 

Switching to remote working will not only save business costs but will also provide work flexibility. It will bring controlled balance, opening opportunities for multi-tasking and versatility. So, the day is not far when remote working will be the most upgraded working medium and 2023 is here to take off the trend. 

24. Advancement of SaaS With 5G

With the expansion of the 5G networking system, SaaS will be able to add more advanced features and services to its box. It will be a turning point for cloud computing, data storage, and will explode the entire SaaS system.

The traditional product & services will soon switch to SaaS to reach their customers. No doubt, the advancement of 5G will have a forceful impact on the SaaS market. Services that were previously provided in a variety of offline methods will eventually start to be delivered as SaaS.

25. Popularity Of Virtual and Augmented Reality

Going for Virtual Reality (VR) & Augmented Reality (AR) will allow SaaS to give a real-case experience to their customers. In 2023, this will be one of the growing SaaS trends in approaching customers. 

VR & AR will allow businesses to communicate with their customers in real-time, regardless of location. Thus, implementing these strategies makes assistance-providing services more accessible and faster. So, this trend will keep blooming in 2023 and the coming year to improve the user experience and reduce service expenses. 

26. SaaS Based Blockchain Startups

The emergence of block change has been a revolutionary incident for the digital service platform. Earlier, people perceived block change as just about cryptocurrency and bitcoins. But in recent years, SaaS-based blockchain startups are creating a new line in the service business platform. Infura is a shining example in this case. It is a SaaS-based service platform with the world’s most powerful blockchain API. 

Blockchain provides a secure digital transaction and in 2023, SaaS will use this blockchain to secure their services and bring transparency to the data management system. Thus, using blockchain, SaaS companies can eliminate the requirement of running to a third party for security and transparency. 

 27. The Internet of Things (IoT) & SaaS

Internet of things and saas

The Internet of Things, or IoT, is a technology that allows communication between devices and the cloud. IoT SaaS will be worth mentoring trends of 2023 and beyond. Merging IoT in the SaaS business will bring scalability, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and real-time data capture to a platform. How doubtful it will give the customer an excellent user experience!

IoT devices are everywhere, starting from households to healthcare & finance departments. So, SaaS will expand its vision soon, implementing proper IoT strategies. No doubt this trend is going to stay for sure. 

 28. Personalized Customer Experiences in SaaS

Personalized customer experiences

The demand for personalized features is increasing in the SaaS industry and keeping that in mind, many SaaS companies should focus more on customization to give the best user experience to their customers. 

Personalization includes customizable tools, AI, and machine learning to impact the industry next-level. In 2023, we are willing to see a more personal approach in software services, to eliminate irrelevancy and bring relevant customer experience. 

29. Multi-cloud Strategy In SaaS

Multi cloud strategy

In 2023, we look forward to the overbrimming multi-cloud strategy in SaaS. Implementing this approach allows you to choose cloud services or features from various providers. This is advantageous because some cloud environments are more appropriate than others for a specific job.

For example- some clouds may provide better features on requests per unit of time. But the other might have better machine language features. You can combine these two features to your project by adopting a multi-cloud strategy in your software services. We are optimistic that this trend will bring versatility to the SaaS market within 2023. 

The Bottom Line

The above-discussed 29 trends will prevail in 2023 and the upcoming years. Among these, the artificial intelligence and transformation of machine language to MLaaS will be major game-changing trends. This will bring a new wave in the upcoming years in all sectors of SaaS. The adoption of SaaS will reach widely in all industries, including the finance, hospitality, and food sectors. 

By the end of 2023, we expect the SaaS trend of automatization cyber attack response to reach its peak level, ensuring protected data and currency transfer. Additionally, SaaS businesses will focus more on product development and price optimization. So, keep up with these trends and watch SaaS bring a revolution in the coming years!
