What is Application Hosting?
In the past, businesses built and maintained the infrastructure needed to run on-site applications. High cost, big staff burden. Fast forward to today and a company can alleviate the staff burden and cost of building the infrastructure by hosting all of their applications with an enterprise application service provider.
Who Needs Application Hosting?
Businesses that need application hosting the most are those with multiple locations or those with employees working from home or other remote locations. Businesses dealing with lots of sensitive data that must remain secure and who cannot afford a security breach, virus, or other damaging event. Additionally, companies that develop their own software applications can host inside of a secure cloud-based environment which is a much more cost-effective route.
Advantages of Applications Hosting
For one, as mentioned above it could represent a significant cost savings to your company. Beyond that it gives you and your workforce mobility – work anywhere at anytime. Companies don’t need to pay high, upfront costs to purchase products like Microsoft Office and then get stuck having to re-purchase them every 2-3 years in order to stay current. With Applications2U, a Microsoft partner, you can lease the software for a low-cost, monthly fee and never have to worry about upgrading.
And wouldn’t it be nice to stop worrying about the security of your data? Well, that’s another plus with application hosting – data is secure. Add in 24-hour support delivered 7 days a week, year round and it’s a wonder you’re still reading this sentence.
