Building a digital infrastructure costs a lot of money. It would seem to make sense that applications, technology, support, and ongoing maintenance would increase costs.
The reality is very different.
Cloud applications, cloud hosting, and “as-a-service" subscription delivery options reduce overall hardware and software needs. In fact, many businesses realize financial and accounting benefits going from capital expenditure (CAPEX) to operating expenditure (OPEX).
And today, even business hardware technology like laptops, printers, and other essential components can be found in infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) or everything-as-a-service (EaaS) offerings converting hardware from CAPEX to OPEX, making going digital even easier for companies of all sizes.
