In the past, hotels tended to overbuy on technology at the outset, and then they would hold off on new purchases until the capacity of the system had become inadequate. This is the worst possible combination: spending too much initially and ending up with a system that is inadequate a few years later. Move to Cloud Hospitality and this problem of scaling the infrastructure disappears.
No Upfront Capital Costs
The easiest way to cut costs is to refresh in the CloudServer instead of refreshing to new servers and new equipment. CloudServer features no upfront costs when you move into Cloud Hospitality. The pay-as-you-go model minimizes both project and financial risks because organizations can scale the project based on business results and also ensure that vendors are held accountable over the project’s lifetime. In other words, cloud computing provides a better way for IT departments and CFOs to match investments in a project with business value or return.
Cloud Hospitality Lowers Operational Costs
With cloud computing, there is no software or hardware to purchase initially. Perhaps even more important, cloud computing reduces overall application maintenance and support substantially over time. Such operational efficiencies are the result of a true multi-tenant architecture. Multi-tenancy makes possible a pace of innovation and collaboration that’s simply not achievable with on-premises platforms. Every time a major innovation is released, every customer instantly benefits. The multi-tenant architecture makes quick deployment, low risk, and rapid innovation possible.
Fewer Technological Requirements
Because performance tuning and maintenance are handled by the vendor, resources that would be required to support the applications are freed up for other projects, improving the overall productivity of the IT department.
RapidScale’s Cloud Hospitality provides a more agile development environment, based on configurable metadata, in which changes can be made, tested, and deployed in a fraction of the time of on-premises platforms. One of the advantages of this environment is that, once applications are built, they can be rapidly changed to adapt to shifting market demands.
Gartner estimates that up to 35 percent of the implementation costs associated with on-premises application development is for integration. In comparison, RapidScale cloud computing makes integration faster, easier, and less risky than ever before.
To ensure customers can integrate to any endpoint, RapidScale provides comprehensive technologies that offer maximum flexibility while dramatically reducing the integration effort. Plus our around-the-clock monitoring and support are ideal for businesses that operate 24×7 and have a strong focus on customer satisfaction and repeat business.
