As we’ve covered in our blog here, there are many reasons to migrate OnBase to the cloud. You might be looking for improved reliability, reduced hardware costs, or better scalability.

Of course, you have options when moving OnBase to the cloud. You can outsource the maintenance of your servers to a generic cloud provider, or you can go one step farther and purchase OnBase in a Software as a Service model from Hyland, the creators of OnBase.

Which choice will work best for you? See how each OnBase option compares below.

For some people, migrating OnBase to the cloud is inevitable as the time and cost to maintain it onsite becomes increasingly difficult to justify. Migrating to a public cloud such as Microsoft Azure can make sense for some but that path still requires a lot of investments from in-house IT. In our opinion, migrating to the Hyland Cloud offers the greatest flexibility and functionality for the lowest cost and IT time commitment.
