The way companies buy software has changed dramatically over the years. Companies used to purchase software that included an array of programs, ranging from maintenance to product inventory. The downfall is that these programs are often pricey and can take years to install. In addition, software with multiple programs may be strong in certain areas but weak in other important areas.
Today’s recommendation is to get your software from the cloud. You have countless options to choose from and can order specialized software that fits your company’s specific needs. And when you subscribe from the cloud, you are not locked into using the software. If you discover the software is not working for you, just unsubscribe and try another. The best part is that your IT department does not need to be heavily involved in the process, they just need to approve it.
So, the next time you need new software, consider looking to the cloud to find the product you need at a price that fits your budget.
