Choosing between SaaS and the on-premises solution involves evaluating data before deciding about the software delivery method.
SaaS is a better option if you are dealing with a huge amount of data and are using old hardware. Storage scalability is another reason that favors SaaS, while many businesses don’t have the human resources needed to make an on-premises solution a success.
On the other hand, SaaS isn’t the best solution if security compliance of an enterprise does not allow 3rd party hosting, making on-premises solutions a better (or the only) option.
Compared to traditional installable software, SaaS provides some distinct advantages including:
- Helps make budgeting simpler
- Easy to configure and use
- No huge upfront costs
- Predictable costs
- Shortens the implementation time for projects
- Highly scalable
