Hi all
I was looking to get clear idea of Cloud computing, SaaS and SOA but couldn't get anything as such. Can anybody briefly explain what is the difference between them. Especially Cloud computing and SaaS.

Thanks in advance

Useless and incorrect question. Such questions are pointless and does not really help to learn anything. Ask yourself, what do you want to know on each concept...

As far as my understand from the article, SaaS is part of Cloud computing? where is the difference lays on?

One of the category of Cloud Computing is SaaS. Is it logical to look for difference between them?
If citrus fruits are one of the categories of fruits, what is the difference between fruits and citrus fruits?

What are you trying to explain? If a person who fails see that the questions of the type "what is the difference between {0}, {1} and {2}" are logically incorrect, how can you expect such person to understand programming?

I suggest we should not answer such questions, except pointing out they are incorrect. Why putting ourselves in awkward position?

You're right.

If you still fail to understand what do I mean by incorrect question, please read this past answer: what is the difference between the class and encapsulation in programming[^].

Please see the discussion on how to ask a question correctly: How to ask a good question?[^].

It's also very useful to have an idea of this: WPF Button Command Parameter config[^].
