Cloud, On-premise, or Hybrid? What is the Best for Your Business
It’s difficult to escape the discussion of cloud, on-premise, and hybrid landscapes. But what exactly do these terms mean?
Previously, all systems were on-premise which means they were hosted on servers on the customer’s site and required end users to install software on their computers to run. Cloud systems or software as a service has become a popular choice in recent times. These offerings are hosted on a providers’ server without the need to install software locally, making transactions easier and reflected in real-time. This allows users to work remotely and on mobile devices, benefit from system updates quickly and efficiently, and provides real-time information across all applications and to all users.
In order to make the transition from on-premise to cloud a smoother process, companies are opting to use hybrid landscapes as an interim solution – that means cloud and on-premise systems working together to transition to the cloud without disruption. Businesses and end users have many concerns about changing their system landscapes and fear of the unknown. There are common questions which focus on architectural best practices, integration options, security aspects and how to operate the new environment.
