Technology pundits have been telling us that Cloud is the technology of the future. It is becoming clear that most of the todays software will run as software as a service (SaaS) in next five years. Traditional on premise business applications such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Enterprising Resource Planning (ERP),Management Information System (MIS) and Human Resource Management (HRM) etc. are becoming things of the past. Many more small to large enterprises are adapting to cloud business applications.
Here are the three reasons why you should use cloud base business applications:
1) Focus on what you do best
Your focus should be building your business and that is where your core competency is. Running full-fledged IT operations: such as installing and maintaining software, upgrading hardware, making sure data is secured etc. is not your core business and let others handle it who knows this best.
By subscribing software in the cloud (SaaS), you can save lot of time and afford which you can focus on your business. Research firm Gartner predicts that by 2012, 20% of businesses will own no IT assets.
2) Cost of ownership
One of the primary reasons to choose the cloud based application is the cost. For on-premise IT operation, there is upfront cost for purchasing software licenses, hardware, setup etc. By adopting SaaS, you will have no software or hardware upfront cost and maintenance cost, which generally comprises a big chunk of share on operation, and so you will save both time and money.
Technology is rapidly changing and business beats its competition by responding to these changes quickly. Today, many desktop based business applications run in the Web and some of them run in the cloud. Many cloud based applications are also offered (or in process) in mobile. There is a substantial investment you have to make if you want to upgrade your on-premise software to adapt to the technology changes.
