Why the Cloud?



Cloud computing has moved from an IT buzzword to one of the most important business and technical capabilities available to CIOs today.


Rapid deployment, reduced up-front capital expenditure, enhanced security and disaster recovery capabilities are all cited as some of the many benefits of moving to the cloud.


From an enterprise content management (ECM) perspective, the cloud can provide storage, processing and deployment functionality. The OnBase Cloud, a platform built specifically to deliver ECM in the cloud, not only provides access to content via web and mobile interfaces, but also provides two-way ECM functionality such as workflow, content editing, reporting, capture and more.


The benefits of the OnBase Cloud are numerous, but some will be more relevant to your particular organization than others. The resources listed to the right provide a wide range of information to help you understand how the cloud relates to ECM and what its benefits (and shortfalls) are as well as some thought-provoking pieces questioning some of the common misconceptions that surround the cloud. These resources can be used to bolster your own understanding or to create a compelling business case for your organization to move to the cloud.
