CLOUD COMPARES TO ON-PREMISE
The Simplicity of Cloud
Assist eliminates many of the barriers that prevent companies from implementing or upgrading their solutions and, more importantly, enables them to focus on their core business instead of managing IT. Assist’s cloud-based offerings are designed to help you reduce complexity, get up and running quickly, and decrease on-going operational costs.
When your organization is not focused on running systems and maintaining infrastructure, those resources can be focused on your organization’s core initiatives. Assist takes away the overhead of running the applications required for your business and allows your team to execute on core initiatives instead of IT.
Lower Cost, Faster Deployment
Cloud-based solutions are much lower cost and faster to deploy because you simply implement the software and then access it through your computer's Internet connection. By eliminating the overhead associated with maintaining the infrastructure, you can focus your workforce on growing your business.
On-Premise Requires Large Capital Investments
On-premise solutions require large, upfront capital investments to purchase and upgrade hardware, facilities, software, and training. And your company must provide on-going support of the solution, including IT staff, data center, infrastructure, and more.
Easier Roll-Out Across Your Entire Company
Traditionally, new services take time and require careful planning for successful deployment and maintenance. Assist’s cloud solutions offer clear advantages when you consider speed of deployment and overall maintenance. Our cloud solutions do not require additional hardware, so your business doesn't have to waste time procuring, installing, and maintaining IT infrastructure. Our cloud solutions allow you to be more agile, providing the required services when you need them.
Scalability and Flexibility
Cloud deployments can be completed in a fraction of the time compared to the time that it takes to implement an on-premise solution.
Cloud-based systems are easier to scale, giving you the flexibility to add more services as your business grows.
UPGRADES AND ENHANCEMENTS
Difficulty Upgrading On-Premise Systems
Companies face issues with prioritizing the need to upgrade and update their infrastructure and software. The need for availability often outweighs the value of these changes. Capital budgets also create another dynamic where the timeliness of new infrastructure and software is impacted. Customizations exacerbate these challenges. These scenarios often result in companies running their business on out-of-date technology.
Automatic Updates With Cloud
In comparison, cloud solutions like Assist are continually upgraded so you can be sure you're always using the latest, most advanced versions of available technology. Since our cloud platform was designed from inception with high availability in mind, you receive upgrades and updates with either limited or no impact to availability. And equally important, support for your customizations and integrations are automatically carried forward when the solution is updated.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
iSeries and x86/x64 in the cloud. Our foundation has always been the iSeries. A natural evolution for our organization was to offer our ERP solution in the cloud. Demand from our customers has further evolved our offerings to include cloud based iSeries or x86/x64 platforms.
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)
Assist can provide a standby ERP system or even an entire iSeries environment in the cloud with a Recovery Time Objective (RTO) of seconds and a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of subsecond. Our customers demand high availability for their ERP systems and iSeries environments. We provide this service based on delta level changes (journaling) and secure transport & storage. All you need is an Internet connection and we can tailor a solution to meet your organization’s requirements for a geographically diverse instance that can be accessed within seconds of experiencing an outage.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
Applications and environments in the cloud. Assist can offer many environments from iSeries and x86/x64, databases, web hosting, and more. If you have a requirement for a service, we most likely have a production instance running for our customers.
