Cloud computing: Where are the business benefits - panel discussion

Not all companies are suited to online, or cloud, software applications,
according to Bryan Richter, manager at Mamut, the financial software providers.

In a discussion panel on the business benefits of cloud computing Richter
advised that a company has to look at the functionality of a cloud product
before purchase.

He added: “Buy software on functionality not architecture.”

He continued:“If it is available in the cloud then great, but don’t just buy
software that is in the cloud.”

The panel also included Toby Davidson, director of professional services
NetSuite; Tim Knight, senior director salesforce.com; David Turner, group
marketing director, Coda. It was chaired by Richard Anning, head of the IT
Faculty at the ICAEW.

The cloud computing discussion panel took place earlier today at Softworld
with the audience consisting of accountants, including financial controllers and
finance directors of large to small companies.
