TCO: Cloud Vs. On-Premises Quality Management
When you implement a Quality Management software solution, you naturally want to ensure the best possible value from your investment. It’s important that you look beyond the upfront price of a solution and consider all the factors that will require ongoing commitments of money and resources over time: the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
When you're evaluating software choices, one of your first considerations is whether to implement a traditional on-premises solution or use software hosted in the cloud—Software as a Service (SaaS). The initial price tag for SaaS may be attractive, but does that savings hold up over time?

Note that cost alone shouldn’t be your only consideration when choosing between an on-premises or cloud-based solution. Be sure to consult with your Account Manager to determine which solution best fits your organization’s specific requirements.
A Quality Management solution is an investment that you’ll want to use for a long time, so be sure you’re considering the ongoing costs of supporting that solution – as well as the potential value you’ll get back.
