Why the cloud has hard benefits for software vendors
Your customers appreciate the value of licensing solutions from you instead of writing their own applications. Similarly, when it comes to providing a cloud for your Software-as-a-Service delivery, building your own can actually put you at a disadvantage. It’s a lengthy and involved undertaking, so you may end up being slower to market than your competitors - foregoing revenue and risking your technology becoming out-dated in the process. Relying on your own infrastructure also entails a lifetime of responsibility for “care and feeding”, including the expensive skills and technologies behind best-in-class security, which can burn considerable budget to keep current. And crucially, it’s all a distraction from your key priority – developing the next big thing.
