Objections to moving to CHILI publisher Online SaaS?

With so many immediate benefits and more promised for the future, there remain few reasons not to get onboard with CHILI publish’s cloud solution today. Nonetheless, there are two important points of hesitation for some businesses that we’d like to address here.

Corporate restrictions make change difficult

Enterprise and big businesses understandably keep strict requirements in place for any software that integrates or communicates with their technology stacks. Traditionally, this has meant many IT departments prefer on-premises solutions so they can test and deploy solutions on-site where they can keep an eye on things.

However, with the arrival of robust, secure cloud platforms like Microsoft Azure and the widespread adoption of ISO security standards, the level of cybersecurity provided by certified, cloud-based solutions is now mature and enterprise-ready. And beyond security, there are strong financial incentives that make cloud solutions the right move for scalable, fast, efficient technology improvements.

  • CHILI publish is ISO27001:2017 certified, ensuring we match the compliance requirements for a huge number of modern businesses. Visit our Trust page for full information.
  • CHILI publisher’s cloud infrastructure is based on the industry-standard [Microsoft Azure framework](https://www.microsoftpartnercommunity.com/t5/ISV-Inspiration/Improve-your-graphics-with-CHILI-Publisher/td-p/32209), ensuring tight compliance with enterprise systems.
  • SaaS solutions are generally considered an Operating Expense (OpEx) as opposed to Capital Expense (CapEx). This means approvals can happen without long managerial delays, and business and technical goals can be hit faster. Forecasting is also made significantly easier, and resources can be deployed rapidly on an as-needed basis.

SaaS is too risky given the current climate of uncertainty around SaaS-based Startups

Just like Microsoft, Apple, Google and a host of other vendors, CHILI publish has never been part of a SaaS speculative bubble. Our offering was mature before we moved to an online infrastructure. We made the decision to adopt cloud technology and SaaS licensing because these allowed us to deliver the best and most affordable implementation of our already proven business solution to our customers.

Closing thoughts
