In the business model using software as a service, users are provided access to application software and databases. The cloud providers manage the infrastructure and platforms on which the applications run. Given the complicate nature of some of the BI processes and systems, cloud may seem a reasonable solution for many companies.
In Data Gearbox we specialize in providing cloud solutions to our clients. This enables the business to reallocate IT operations costs away from hardware/software spending and personnel expenses, towards meeting other IT goals. In addition, with applications hosted centrally, updates can be released without the need for users to install new software. This means lower IT costs and increased efficiency.
