The Economic and Strategic Benefits of Cloud Computing

Cloud computing and software-as-a-service (SaaS) are two of the hottest IT trends that have emerged in the last couple of decades. By creating the ability to store and access data and programs through the internet while cutting out the middleman (aka, hard drives and other physical devices), cloud computing offers many attractive features to companies in almost all industries, including fiscal savings, speed, scalability, ease of upgrades, and agility. Although the upfront savings of SaaS are undeniable, there are still many that favor on-premise systems and proprietary software. You may be wondering if transitioning to a cloud-based model is the right choice for your company, but with so many different viewpoints it can be hard to make sense of all the pros and cons. Using concrete data organized into helpful graphs, this white paper offers insightful interpretations of the numbers to show the ways in which SaaS can offer both financial savings and strategic advantages.
