PARTING THE CLOUDS: WHY TRUE CLOUD SOLUTIONS AND SAAS SOFTWARE ARE NOT THE SAME
DOWNLOAD WHITE PAPER
In the last few decades, technology has advanced at such a rapid pace that anyone not closely involved in its design and implementation may see little reason to acquaint themselves with the ‘tech terminology du jour’. After all, these terms and phrases often emerge or become extinct as quickly as the technology they are used to describe.
Despite the rapid growth and adoption of cloud computing, there’s still a general lack of understanding about the different terminologies associated with it — cloud- native, cloud-based, SaaS, PaaS, IaaS and so on.
For enterprises who plan to adopt cloud computing, this understanding is critical to identify the right software solution and realise the true benefits of cloud technology.
This white paper discusses the fundamental differences between true cloud solutions and software as a service, and how these differences can impact their ability to meet your current and future business requirements.
