Q : This tool helps project managers and project teams to manage multiple concurrent development happening globally
A : Businesses are increasingly moving every function to the cloud - from HR to operations, finance to logistics. And, Project management in the cloud is going to be one of the most important trends in 2018, predict theprojectgroup.com and the cio.com.
Like most software, project management systems used to live exclusively on premise, limiting the connection between employees who work from home and those who work in the office. While it wasn't a huge obstacle in the 2000s, today on premise software is starting to isolate a greater number of employees.
There are potential benefits of the cloud in terms of cost. For Project management, which will fall under the Software as a Service category, implementing a new solution will have marginal up-front costs. A SaaS project management tool also won't require any new hardware, so businesses won't have to hire in-house IT to oversee implementation and upkeep.
Of course, there are industries that don't want to rely on cloud-based server solutions due to extreme secrecy. There is also fear of not being able to reach the system at the critical moment, insufficient performance as well as external, unauthorized data access. As a result, security policies and procedures need to be developed and implemented to keep client data secure, especially when employees or vendors use their own mobile devices.
