SaaS vs. On-Premise: A Black and White Comparison

Date: Wednesday, July 18, 2012
Time: 2:00 p.m. ET / 11 a.m PT

Until recently, there's been a lot of hype surrounding SaaS and whether or not it is a viable option for application consumption. SaaS has quickly moved beyond the hype, however, to now become the preferred deployment model for enterprise software. SaaS is here to stay.

Check out some stats on the adoption of SaaS in the enterprise:
  • $14.5 billion will be spent worldwide this year on the SaaS market (Gartner)
  • 80 percent of new commercial enterprise applications deployed this year will be on cloud platforms (IDC)
Many of the benefits surrounding SaaS are clear, but how does a cloud-based SaaS solution compare to an on-premise system? Join us for a live webcast as experts answer questions on the reality of moving to SaaS.

- How is a SaaS deployment different, how long does it take, and what is IT's involvement?
- How is speed of innovation different, and why does it matter to your organization?
- What's the difference between SaaS updates and on-premise upgrades?
- How secure is SaaS versus on-premise?
- How does SaaS help your organization be more social, more mobile, and more collaborative?

Change is happening. Are you keeping pace?
