  • You have big ideas

  • To stream on your business

  • And drive sales through the roof

  • But to get there, your idea is the business apps

  • And business apps have always been too expensive

  • Especially in times like these

  • Behind each one is a world of complexity

  • They need a data center with office space,

  • power, cooling, bandwidth, networks, servers, and storage,

  • A complicated software’s stack

  • And a team of experts who stalk and figure around them

  • You need development, testing, staging, production, and failover environments

  • And when there’s a problem, good luck

  • You contact tech support

  • They don’t know, so they blame someone else

  • Oh, and your versions come out

  • They would upgrade

  • But that might bring the whole system down

  • Now, this is for one app

  • When you multiply these headaches across dozens, or hundreds of apps

  • It's easy to see why the biggest companies with the best IT departments aren’t getting the apps they need.

  • Small businesses don’t have a chance

  • How computing is a better way to run your business?

  • Instead of running your apps yourself

  • They run on a shared data center

  • You just "plug in," like utility

  • This makes it fast to get started and it costs less

  • It’s like Gmail, compared to Microsoft Exchange

  • With Gmail, do you need servers and storage? No

  • Do you need a technical team to keep it up and running? No

  • Do you have to do upgrades? No

  • When you use any app that runs on the cloud, you just log in, customize it, and start using it.

  • That's the power of cloud computing.

  • This model is so much better. It's changing the way we think about software.

  • Not just for consumer apps, it's also been used for business apps.

  • We call this "Enteprise Cloud Computing"

  • Businesses are running all kinds of apps on the cloud these days.

  • including custom-built apps

  • Why? Because you can be up and running in a few days

  • which is unheard of with traditional business software

  • They cost less because you don't need to pay for all the people, products, and facilities to run them.

  • And it turns out they're more scalable, more secure, and more reliable than the vast majority of apps out there.

  • Here's why. They're based on an architecture called multi-tenancy.

  • With a multi-tenent app, there is a copy of the app for each business that's using it.

  • It's one app that everyone shares, but it's flexbile enough for everyone to customize for their specific needs.

  • So it's like a giant office building where everyone shares the infrastructure and services, like security.

  • And each business can customize their own office space.

  • This means apps are elastic. They can scale up to tens of thousands of users or down to only a few.

  • Upgrades are taken care for you, so your apps get security and performance enhancements and new features automatically.

  • Now, the way you pay for cloud apps is also different. Forget about buying service and software.

  • Your apps are from the cloud. You don't buy anything at all

  • It's all rolled up in a predictable monthly subscription. See only pay for what you use.

  • Finally, cloud apps don't eat up your valuable IT resources so you CFO will love it.

  • And you can focus on projects that really impact the business like deploying more apps.

  • Cloud computing is a simple idea but it can have a huge impact on your bottom line.
