Consider a more complete solution if you need integration, automation, and change/release management.
The choice on how best to consume software — whether on-premises or through a Software as a Service (SaaS) model — is based on your specific requirements at different points in your business and organizational lifecycles. Each model presents benefits that take into consideration the IT skills within your organization and your budget for capital versus operational expenses. When you look at each model, it’s also important to consider the potential for growth in your IT infrastructure and the level of customization and integration required.
