For on-premise solutions it is important to know the upgrade policy, the support policy and the overall total cost of ownership. Given the advantages of hosting a solution elsewhere, today’s enterprise often opts for SaaS solutions because of the convenience, flexibility and ability to easily scale and support remote and international teams.
