In today’s world of Information Technology, or IT for short, you may need to choose between a cloud and on-premise based computer system. There certainly are a great deal of factors that you must consider when deciding if a cloud based computer system is the best fit for your organization. Should you stick to the more proven legacy on-premise computer applications and software, or should you make the leap to the more technologically advanced cloud based programs? Cloud computing has grown in a substantial manner in recent years.
This is due to the fact that Cloud provides a great deal of flexibility, saves both time and money, and vastly improves your company’s agility and scalability. That being stated, on-premise software that’s installed on your severs and is protected by your firewall was the only choice for many years. Although cloud based computer systems are more technologically advanced, an on-premise system may very well get the job done. In essence, why fix something that isn’t broken? Although on-premise computer software may be a bit slower, they are typically secure, reliable, and provide a higher level of control.
However, it’s important to consider that in addition to your existing on-premise platform, you may very well need to utilize new cloud based SaaS applications in order to truly achieve the best results. In essence, a cloud and on-premise computing system may be in order. Hybrid computing. Cloud computing is different from on-premise computing in one major way. In an on-premise environment the organization hosts everything in-house. In a cloud based environment a third party company hosts everything for you. This enables your organization to basically pay for software and services on as needed basis.
Cloud will scale up or down based on your user requirements, which are driven by the size and growth of your organization. The bottom line is that a cloud based computer solution utilizes virtual technology in order to host your organization’s applications and software online and offsite. With cloud based computing systems there are virtually zero capital expenses. The data is backed up on a regular basis, and you only need to pay for the technology that you actually utilize. In addition, the cloud provides you with the ability to connect with business partners, customers, vendors, and anyone else with less effort. We can help you determine if a cloud and on-premises computer system is right for your business. There are also many compliance benefits with going with a Cloud solution. With regards to reporting, security and data analysis, the Cloud option is typically far more advanced compared to what is natively available with an on premise system.
