Shining a Light on the Clouds: Finding a True Cloud Solution

The Cloud continues to hang over the business computing landscape like, well, a cloud. Public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, SaaS, PaaS, IaaS—all of it makes for a confusing alphabet soup for even the most experienced industry observers and IT pros.

And, as longstanding technology firms look for ways to get into the market and new entrants emerge, creating new terminology, claiming firsts and generally obfuscating the entire landscape, it only promises to get more confusing for technology buyers seeking a cost effective, scalable and agile solution for their needs. This paper serves to provide some clarity around the different flavors of cloud and a detailed explanation of why multi-tenant SaaS offers the greatest combination of value, agility and scalability.

It is no secret that the old clear distinctions between manufacturers, distributors and retailers have been obliterated. Manufacturers are increasingly selling direct to the end customer, distributors are selling direct to end customers as well broadening their services to include light assembly and manufacturing, and in some cases offering their own branded product lines. Meanwhile, retailers are increasingly relying on private label products to generate margins and loyalty, essentially taking on the role of a brand owner, managing outsourced manufacturing. In this report, we explore what happens when a business crosses over to become a combination manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer—how it impacts partnerships, services, revenue models and the business’s system requirements.
