Cloud offers many advantages over on-premises content management. It is simple. No hardware to buy. No software to install. No upfront fees. No need to resource IT staff. No worries about downtime, backups, or recovery. Just log into your browser and you are there. However, it is up to the company’s policy – if you have an IT department and all infrastructure in place, it might be reasonable to have an on-premises solution, as this usually provides richer functionality and technical capabilities than cloud systems.
