Cloud Vs On-Premise Software Solutions
Essentially, the fundamental difference between cloud vs on-premise software is where it resides. On-premise software is installed locally, on your business’ computers and servers, where cloud software is hosted on the vendor’s server and accessed via a web browser or client connection. As well as accessibility, there are a raft of other things that need to be considered when making a decision, including software ownership, cost of ownership, software updates and additional services, such as support and implementation.
With a cloud solution there are many processes and resources that are offloaded at a cost via the platforms software subscription. In many cases this makes the most sense from a monetary and reliability standpoint. However there can be many pitfalls with choosing a substandard or proprietary solution. Also there are some features that can be lost due to losing the ability to control the system files at a database level. Both topologies have their pros and cons and both have their application dependent on your organizations needs and overall roadmap.
