Cloud Computing provides a cost effective, flexible option for businesses to deploy software solutions. When applications run in the cloud, organizations no longer have to make major investments in infrastructure. These costs are now a predictable monthly subscription, so you only pay for what you actually use.
Some of the benefits the Cloud brings are:
- Reduced hardware and software acquisition costs.
- Ability to focus on the core business vs technology.
- Improved cash flow under Pay for Use payment models.
- Eliminating software upgrade and update processes.
- Improved accessibility to applications remotely.
- Continuous availability to new updates and new features
