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 #4: Integration.
There is no end to the amount of useful applications customized for the specific needs of every industry today. However, each of those applications may operate in different ways. For example, your organization may use an on-premise database in conjunction with a cloud-based CRM. Insuring that these systems integrate prevents rekeying information and enables having the right data available when you need it. You need the option of deploying your integration technology so that it works in both environments. To decide whether your integration technology will reside in the cloud or in a rack in your data center, you have to start with the specific requirements of your business.
Stay tuned for the next post when I discuss Consideration #5: User Locations.
