main headline

This issue of the Cloud Hosting e-newsletter includes a thought-provoking piece from Dave Taylor of Impartner, which focuses on how innovative cloud technologies can revolutionise the way that businesses of all shapes and sizes work with their partners. Partner portals designed in the early 2000s are no longer up to the job, argues Taylor, and SaaS is the obvious solution – in fact, he claims, internally developed software solutions are often a ‘decelerator’ for businesses. To quote the piece: “Many companies remain mired in the mistaken belief that they know their unique requirements and technology platforms better than anyone else and no one else could ‘build it like they could.’”

The Cisco Cloud Index 2014-19 found that by 2019, 56 percent of cloud workloads will be SaaS. The conclusion, says Taylor, is clear: companies must stop believing their IT challenges are unique to them and that their needs for scalability and interoperability are exclusive. He goes on, “Thanks to the increasing “lego-isation” of IT, the modular SaaS model is replacing the final bastions of custom developed IT infrastructure as a better way to allow a business to grow and - crucially – allow partners to grow with them.”
