I usually have two word answer to the life-long pursuit of cutting cost and focusing on innovation, the Cloud. Software as a Service (SaaS), running applications on the Cloud, can offer more benefits than simply allowing one organization to save hardware and software costs. You cannot miss the obvious benefits, including reduced cost, increased storage, working in a highly automated environment with more flexibility and more mobility. However, I believe the biggest benefit for any organization is focusing on innovation, rather than focusing on cutting the costs associated with buying and maintaining software and hardware.
Salesforce.com, leader in CRM solutions has been helping thousands of organizations manage every aspect of their business online. In times like these, when cutting cost alone is not going to help enough, innovation has become the norm for many successful organizations.
In my 12 years of professional experience in IT, I have learned that the majority of organizations innovate within their software and hardware limits. When organizations can bypass their software and hardware limitations, can they focus on innovation and enter new markets and grab more market share. I understand the Cloud adoption might not be right for every organization, but until organizations take the first step and contact a cloud-solution provider, they will never know what opportunities are available to them.
