As companies look for innovative ways to slash IT expense, improve resiliency and remain competitive, Cloud technologies are becoming more appealing especially to the small and midsize business owner looking to better manage their cash flow and be a part of the next generation of cloud computing. In the past, it was common for companies to purchase, deploy and maintain their software applications on-premise. Now with Cloud technologies leading the forefront of change, organizations are interested in exploring new options and want to understand the economic advantages of on-premise vs. cloud and what moving to the cloud really means in terms of TCO (total-cost-of-ownership).
One of the most compelling reasons for moving to the cloud is a company’s ability to convert a capital expense to operational expense. This combined with quicker deployment times, no longer having to maintain software, hardware and infrastructure, or having the resources to internally support make Cloud technologies attractive.
