According to Logicalis, enterprise organizations are questioning whether to choose between capital expenditure or operational expenditure. The As-a-Service concept will continue to grow as business clients expect immediate results with technology, said Logicalis' Dreher.
"There is a lot of desire to move to a cost basis that is predictable and to pay for things when you need it, of what you need," said Dreher. "There is a need for that positive end-user experience as users are expecting for instantaneous results from applications, quickly and efficiently. Because of that demand, organizations want As-a-Service models, and software providers are being pushed and pulled to offer their applications as a service to the end-user community."
