  • To SaaS or Not to SaaS: 2015 Enterprise App Outlook-

    Enterprise Apps and the Cloud

    Security, privacy and control of data have been key concerns that have made IT professionals reluctant to move mission-critical data to the cloud. The QuinStreet Enterprise survey found this to still be the case, with only 27 percent of enterprise finance/accounting applications being delivered using the cloud, while only 32 percent of human resources apps were cloud-based. Newer apps, such as mobile device management, Big Data and CRM were far more likely to be deployed in the cloud.

While businesses have been slower to move enterprise apps to the cloud (only a third are currently using cloud-based enterprise apps), it's not due to a lack of wanting. The survey found that major industries, such as health care, finance and government, have ambitious plans to migrate their enterprise apps to the cloud in the coming years.
