Competing in this new economic climate, while delivering a consistent level of service, requires organizations to rethink their IT delivery strategies and core competencies. The slowdown across IT sectors has reduced budgets and staff – yet demands for new business applications and network processing continue to expand.
As organizations seek to reduce costs and risks, some might find that a tactical, short-term solution is the best way of sustaining flexibility in the uncertain times ahead.
A growing number of organizations are investing in software-as-a-service (SaaS) as the fastest and most mature form of cloud deployment. This deployment model is changing the way software services are consumed by the lines of business, spurring the use of business analytics and improving competitiveness. IT departments will discover that cloud deployments allow for a renewed focus on core competencies, reduced staffing and zero maintenance.
