... as a Service

It seems everything can be packaged as a service these days. Here are a few examples.

Application-as-a-Service

Data-as-a-Service / Master-Data-as-a-Service

Identity-as-a-Service

Knowledge-as-a-Service

Security-as-a-Service

and of course

Software-as-a-Service

(too many vendors to list - see Phil Wainewright's blog).

and finally

Solution-as-a-Service

You won't have much luck with the term "data as a service" on wikipedia! Apparently the term is too "new" to be included. you can check out my blog for some discussion on the range of services here:

There are also two DaaS vendors you've missed, the most notable being Postcode Anywhere in the UK, whose core data service is UK and international address data. I work for them but they are a significant player (honest!)
