Running applications and software, by using your own infrastructure and IT staff, can turn out to be a nightmare as it can squeeze out every penny out of your pocket. Also, your IT staff would require spending a large amount of time on operating and maintaining your application’s running status. So, your staff would go out of focus from your core business activities, and this, in turn, can make your business productivity to suffer. Running in-house applications will, thus, result in loss of money, time, and workforce. So, running in-house applications is definitely a very unfitting option, at least, for small and medium size businesses (SMBs).
