re: 5 Ways To Survive The Coming IT Apocalypse
Sorry, but SAAS is not a good idea, it's just a new fad that gives sales people something to push. The Cloud, Saas, Virtual Servers, it's all hype. Yes there is actually some benefit but these are not for everyone and they are not for every situation. Before any smb should consider them, think about the benefits versus the risk, yes...risk. These all have some amount of risk as well as benefit. Not to mention, cost is usually much higher. I run the entire IT department, so adding my salary to the cost of hosting our own exchange server is not a valid measure. I spend very little time managing our exchange server. I have checked out the new cloud solutions and saas and the cost is off the charts compared to the small cost of the server, the licenses, and my very limited time managing it. It was going to cost us twice the amount.
