    Moving to the Cloud? Take a Deep Dive for Full Benefit

    It’s likely clear to most companies by now that any realistic view of the future of the business world involves cloud computing in some way. It’s difficult to ignore the variety of benefits that come from adopting the cloud, including more productivity from employees, more business agility, and, of course, significant cost savings. Even with these advantages in mind, many companies still feel a reluctance to make the cloud part of their operations. A move to the cloud is certainly a significant change, one which should not be considered lightly. While many of these reluctant businesses won’t dispute the benefits of cloud computing, they may have trouble seeing how to maximize those benefits to make such a transition worth it. The answer is to take a “deep dive” into the cloud.

  • Business Agility and SaaS for Small and Mid-sized Businesses

    Business Agility and SaaS for Small and Mid-sized Businesses

    Only big enterprises can afford the high upfront capital expenses of on-premises applications as well as skilled IT professionals to maintain the applications. Since small to mid-sized businesses have to do more with less, SaaS is clearly the best choice for managing growth, and business agility in ever-changing markets. A major reason is because SaaS eliminates the need for an infrastructure investment, platform development or expert manpower, which enables first order initiatives to hold top priority spot. All they need for SaaS is a basic computer with a browser. SaaS is a “pay as you use” subscription delivered to the business.
