Prodoscore Featured on CMS Wire: SaaS vs Cloud
Prodoscore and Prodoscore Head of Product, Crisantos Hajibrahim, were recently featured in the article "SaaS vs. Cloud: Comparing Apples and Oranges" by Kaya Ismail on CMS Wire and would like to thank Ismail for our inclusion.
The article describes the difference between SaaS and Cloud terms and apps and explores the advantages and disadvantages of SaaS apps.
Here is an excerpt:
Do You Need a SaaS Product, or Cloud Computing?
“[The] advantages of a SaaS application are that you have a faster installation time and that you don’t have to worry about future upgrades, given they are done automatically by the hosting provider. A great example is Gmail, a mail service offered by Google,” said Crisantos Hajibrahim, head of product development at Prodoscore.
However, Hajibrahim noted that despite the advantages, SaaS does have some drawbacks. “[One] disadvantage of a SaaS application is there is limited ability to customize your deployment,” said Hajibrahim. He also noted that larger manufacturers might be resistant towards using SaaS applications for running their operations. Proprietary process attributes that are a “closely guarded secret” in a manufacturing firm may not be comfortable in letting a SaaS product access this kind of data.
