AE Technology Group can help you transform your desktop into an on-demand service that can be accessed by any user, on any device, anywhere, with simplicity and scalability. Whether workers are using the latest tablets, smartphones, or laptops, AE Technology Group can quickly and securely deliver virtual desktops and applications that will enable them to work smarter.

Reasons to Consider Cloud Computing, Cloud Hosting, and Cloud Servers:

  • No infrastructure
  • On-demand from any location
  • Intuitive and easier to implement
  • No software to download
  • Secure, reliable backup
  • Increased productivity
  • Easy collaboration

AE Technology Group provides common data solutions and business applications that are online and accessed from a web browser. Users do not need to have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the cloud server or cloud hosting technology. The company’s or user’s software and data are stored and hosted on our servers. SaaS or cloud computing lowers your IT costs, is easier to deploy, more intuitive, and provides greater data security than most client-installed applications.

SaaS: Cloud Hosted Applications

Short for Software as a Service, SaaS is a software delivery method that provides access to software and its functions remotely as a Web-based service. SaaS allows organizations to access business functionality at a cost typically less than paying for licensed applications since SaaS pricing is based on a monthly fee. Also, because the software is hosted remotely, users don’t need to invest in an IT infrastructure.

SaaS removes the need for organizations to handle the installation, set-up and often daily upkeep and maintenance. Software as a Service (SaaS) may also be referred to as simply hosted applications or cloud hosting.

Is Open Source Software Right for My Business?

Open Source software is defined as computer software for which the source code and certain other rights normally reserved for copyright holders are provided under a software license that meets the Open Source definition or that is in the public domain. This permits users to use, change, and improve the software, and to redistribute it in modified or unmodified forms. It is very often developed in a public, collaborative manner. Open Source software is the most prominent example of Open Source development and is often compared to user-generated content. The term Open Source software originated as part of a marketing campaign for free software. A report by Standish Group states that adoption of Open Source software models has resulted in savings of about $60 billion per year to consumers.
