Savvy business leaders recognize the future of IT is in the cloud. Don’t be left behind with outdated technology or leadership mindsets.
Many advantages exist to using SaaS. To start, you eliminate the headaches associated with managing and monitoring all the applications and the hardware necessary to run them. Servers are expensive to purchase and maintain. We take on all the responsibility of software and hardware maintenance.
Since software updates are automatic, you never need to think about installing, much less paying for an upgrade. And, with that is the satisfaction of knowing your users can enjoy the latest features. No need to budget for costly annual upgrades and maintenance fees. Plus, the costs are easier to manage and track on an ongoing basis.
It’s a pay-as-you-go model. You avoid the steep upfront costs associated with major capital investments. Just the approval process for capital expenditures can be time-consuming. With SaaS, you incur a monthly fee for as long as you subscribe. The risk is minimal, and you receive the latest updates and new features as part of your subscription.
Installing and setting up applications for each user is time consuming. The deployment for hosted applications requires fewer resources and certainly much less time. Deployment times for IDS applications are typically weeks instead of months, and the bulk of planning and implementation is handled by our team of project implementation managers.
Another benefit is continuity. Although we certainly don’t want them, disasters by nature and other forces do occur. Even in the aftermath of a serious problem or operational disruption, you don’t miss a beat. You and your staff can continue to work since the applications and data are stored safely and securely in the cloud.
