Since cloud systems are hosted elsewhere, they relieve some of the pressures that come with choosing an on-premises system. You won’t have to perform maintenance on the server. The cloud provider performs this task, and backs up your data in the system. When equipment needs to be replaced, the provider replaces it.
Cloud systems may be less expensive, because you can purchase only the licensing, service space and infrastructure that you need. When your business needs change, it’s easy to purchase more space.
