Research Summary: FinancialForce Spring Release Shows Innovation In Personalization And Collaboration


Innovation Arrives To Cloud-Based Financial Management Applications

Constellation’s series on innovation in financial management applications in the cloud identifies finance leaders and technology providers seeking to transform the current legacy on-premises market. As finance leaders venture into the cloud for innovation and renewal of mission-critical financial management applications, they must shatter myths about security, customization, and regulatory compliance.
Nine benefits of the cloud continue to outweigh the risks, including potential vendor lock- in. Those who make the shift to the cloud drive overall innovation in achieving reduction of cost of ownership and complexity, mobile access, and reduction of cost of maintenance or increased value, integration, and self-service business intelligence.
