If you haven’t moved your applications to the cloud yet, check out the five benefits of adopting a SaaS solution below:
Moving from the capital-heavy expense of installing, maintaining, and upgrading on-premises IT infrastructure to the operational cost of a SaaS subscription provides greater clarity in the costs involved in the use of a software solution (license costs, maintenance costs, and infrastructure costs). Indeed, the historical complaint about enterprise software has been the unknown cost to deploy, operate, and archive. With SaaS, the total cost to operate the application is fixed and transparent from the start, so there aren’t any surprises or unexpected costs.
With cloud computing, you only need an internet connection to work on your daily tasks and projects the same way as on desktop applications. Your work is automatically saved and safely stored in the cloud. You can also easily collaborate with your peers using modern embedded collaborative features such as review notes and validation workflows, improving teamwork efficiency, and providing faster results. This enables your workforce to work remotely without productivity taking a hit.
In general, cloud solutions include automated backups out of the box. Cloud vendors can indeed perform daily backups, weekly and monthly backups so that you are sure that your data is safe. In addition to backups, cloud vendors can also offer advanced disaster recovery programs to protect you in the event of unexpected disruption. To do so, production data are synchronized regularly to a secure server in a remote location. In the event of a disaster, the production server is updated with the latest backup of the remote server.
Cloud systems provide a higher uptime compared to on-premises. Cloud systems indeed help reduce technology complexity and rely on an enhanced and secure cloud infrastructure. There’s also no need to plan for costly IT upgrades with SaaS. It eliminates the hassle of managing upgrades or any other IT expansion as your business grows. It ensures that your software solution is always up to date by letting the software vendor managing upgrades.
Last but not least, cloud solutions are even more secure than on-premise solutions enabling you to store your strategic data on a secure infrastructure. Cloud providers are large companies that possess high technical expertise and hire certified professionals. They comply with many international regulations and use the most recent technologies. Cloud providers also run powerful cybersecurity software preventing attacks from happening and keeping your data protected.
