One of the newest trends is the increasing use of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare, BFSI, and others. Cloud and AI technology are integrated by significant participants in the software as a service market to help customers manage their work by providing cutting-edge, secure services.

The development of significant data diagnostics drives the need for SaaS approaches combined with AI and cloud services throughout the healthcare system.
