Deployment method

Flexibility in mind




Alleviates the need to have a full IT staff

The line gets especially blurry between application hosting and SaaS (which refers to in the cloud). Hosting primary objective is to offer “off the rack” software — such as application hosting.

Essentially under hosted, servers are in fact located in someone else’s datacenter – There is two options for hosting – Partner Hosted or SAP Hosted.

Good Reason for Hosting

  • Alleviates the need to have a full IT staff manage the day-to-day functions of these servers
  • Provide with relatively full control of the environment for any customization requirements

What you should know

Security. Do you share the server with others? What processes are in place to correct problems quickly? Is there back-up and redundancy plan ?
