Insights as a Service (IaaS)
Definition - What does Insights as a Service (IaaS) mean?
Insights as a Service (abbreviated as IaaS, as is Infrastructure as a Service) is a type of cloud service that involves providing specific data results. It essentially combines the idea of business intelligence with the concept of vendor-delivered cloud services and analytics.
Techopedia explains Insights as a Service (IaaS)
Like other kinds of cloud services such as Software as a Service, Communications as a Service, Infrastructure as a Service and Platform as a Service, the idea of Insights as a Service revolves around the idea of Web-delivered services that supplement the business's in-house IT architecture. Unlike these other types of services, however, Insights as a Service takes the data and refines it for certain types of actionable results. Insights as a Service can be considered a subset of predictive analytics, or as an associated discipline that helps to provide business value through the cloud.
