Course Description
There is no easy "one size fits all" solution when it comes to software hosting. Hosting in the cloud may be better suited for one firm, while a hybrid solution is better for others. We will discuss various hosting methods and expand on the pros and cons of each method. What are the advantages and disadvantages to these methods as it relates to Document Management? Document Management is different than single purpose programs like tax or accounting software due to the volume of data transmission and the need for integration with other software applications.
