Replicated: Demand for on-premises software equally as strong as SaaS
While there is a strong demand for cloud applications and software-as-a-service, security, regulatory, and compliance requirements continue to drive demand for on-premises software. In a new Dimensional Research report, 92% of companies said on-premises software was growing. The report, sponsored by Replicated, a software delivery and management company, found that current customer demand for on-premises software was equal to that of public cloud. While it may be popular to believe that “cloud is king” and SaaS is the best and most in-demand modern enterprise software, data shows that demand for on-premises software is equally as strong. This directly counters the popular narrative that SaaS has overtaken on-premises software delivery, as security and data protection stay top of mind for enterprise software customers.
