Modernize Your Legacy Software Applications
An ISHIR White PaperAbstract
In this IDC white paper, we take a look at three myths that are used to explain and even justify why over 85% of all organizations still run their own email and other productivity tools software. We look at each of these myths to show why they are hiding the fact that SaaS will be achieving wider adoption over the next several years. We look at how the arrival of Microsoft Online Services and the company´s commitment to SaaS will mean the end of business as usual for the way productivity tools are delivered to business users at a growing number of organizations. We take a look at Microsoft´s Online Services offerings and their benefits for customers and partners. We conclude with some of the opportunities and challenges of expanding the use of hosted services in a world that will continue to be dominated by onpremises software.
