Today’s new enterprises can accelerate quickly and remain agile by adopting subscription-based business apps delivered through the Cloud. Businesses no longer need to own their systems, they simply use them. This new approach threatens to leave behind companies tied to more established, on-premise software.
Additionally, the size of these software applications combined with the extent of their customer bases and distribution networks can make it difficult for providers to move to a new delivery model.
Rather than investing in true Cloud development, many established software providers have chosen to host their old solutions online, even offering subscription-based pricing, so it is becomes difficult to distinguish true, “Born in the Cloud” solutions from imitations. Does it actually make a difference?
