  1. Solution Infrastructure:

Pros:

No infrastructure is needed in-house; there is no need for internal IT resources.

No internal IT resources are required, and therefore there is no need to invest on additional IT infrastructure.

Connection to the Internet is the only thing that cloud software systems require.

The cloud software provider takes care of everything– hardware, software, servers, and the entire infrastructure.

 

Cons:

Internet connectivity is necessary to enable use of SaaS solutions.

 

  1. Access To Your Organization’s Information At Any Time From Anywhere:

Pros:

You can access all your organization’s financial and operational from anywhere and at any time. You can access this information on your Phone, Tablet, Laptop or Desktop.

SaaS allows you to expand your local and global presence quickly.

The latest innovations in cloud computing allow cloud applications to be even more mobile, like Facebook or Instagram.

All that consumers need to keep up with information at any time, using any device, from any place in the world, is access to the Internet.

Cloud computing allows consumers to manage, store and process relevant data via the web, rather than on a personal computer from the local server.

Many people carry portable devices when not at their desk, and a cloud solution easily allows them to access their documents and data in cloud storage via the Internet.

 

Cons:

Internet access is necessary. The good thing about internet connectivity in Kenya is that over 95% of SMEs in Kenya have access to the internet so most of them don’t worry about internet connectivity for their SaaS systems.

In summary, before deciding which model is better for your company, consider all 6 components described earlier in this article: costs, risks, deployment time, security, web access, customization and future development.
