With so much discussion and debate about whether to use cloud or on-premise solutions, it can be difficult to decide. In this new blog & video series, I'm helping narrow down the top 6 things to consider before making this important decision for your business. Today, I'm covering Consideration #5: User Locations.
#5 User Locations
Does your business have more than one location or remote workers? Having multiple locations can challenge organizations and their employees’ ability to be as productive and efficient as possible. This is a huge factor to consider when deciding between cloud or on-premise software. The cloud is credited with being easily accessible by anyone at anytime, but it is also touted as sometimes being less secure. At the same time, on-premise software has long-standing remote solutions, but those may still limit functionality for traveling employees.
One thing everyone can agree on is that remote access is becoming increasingly important with the rise of mobile devices used for business. The best way to choose the right solution is to find an expert who can help you evaluate your business needs now and in the future.
Stay tuned for the next post when I discuss Consideration #6: Bandwidth.
