On Premise Vs Cloud Knowledge Base

Which license is right for your knowledge base system?

We are hearing a lot about how the Cloud is benefitting businesses of all shapes and sizes and across all industries. There is no doubt that being able to do away with onsite management of business critical systems has changed the technology landscape.

However, before implementing new software, or moving an existing one onto the Cloud, there are things that you should consider. As with anything, what’s right for other businesses might not be right for you. Whether you host systems, such as your Customer Relationship Management or Enterprise Resource Management solutions, onsite or in the Cloud depends on a number of factors, such as budget, level of control required, and in-house expertise available.
