    It’s encouraging to see the shift towards areas where cloud investments truly leverage potential benefits (i.e. scalability, flexibility, cost efficiencies, etc.). However it’s crucial that these investments start with true needs assessments like the one offered to SMBs by HP and VMWare (j.mp/vmvirt). Misguided investments in cloud — even within the PaaS or IaaS space could prove damaging if not in alignment with actual needs, goals and capabilities.

    SaaS systems allow you to create a seamless flow of knowledge in your organization by allowing you to access information from any location you have an internet connection. And with more and more companies being run remotely and globally, the importance of sharing knowledge is increasing.

    As an employee of a SaaS based system myself, AffinityLive.com, I know the importance for managers to have the ability to pull up past lead interactions before a meeting, logistics of moving pieces, quickly reference particular overviews and performance reports, and much more, allowing you to monitor your business on the move without actually being present for every interaction or event.
