1. The platforms must be specialised by industry;

2. They must be built for the Cloud; and

3. They must be infinitely scaleable.

How to Identify the Right Solution

If you’re considering an enterprise software solution, and wondering whether it is built for the Cloud and built for your industry, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Can it be up and running in less than 16 weeks?
  • Does it offer elite customer support?
  • Does it eliminate the need to conduct upgrade installations and testing?
