Pricing Cloud Accounting Services | AccountingWeb

Pricing Cloud Accounting Services | AccountingWeb | Technology Impacting Our Clients | Scoop.it

The efficiency of being in the cloud helps to spread a small portion of the costs you would incur if you did it yourself to manageable costs over all of your client engagements.  You pay for what you use instead of having the upfront overhead cost that needs to be covered by your engagements before you even start becoming profitable. Your cloud providers incur the cost of maintaining all the security and privacy regulations and auditing the system.  So when pricing your services in a cloud environment, you have a real opportunity to incorporate your cloud costs into a value-billing system with your clients to gain profitability as you become more efficient with each engagement....

Gartner: Don't trust cloud provider to protect your corporate assets

Gartner: Don't trust cloud provider to protect your corporate assets | Technology Impacting Our Clients | Scoop.it

When a family with a baby buys a new car, they don't buy a car seat from the vehicle manufacturer: There is specialized equipment to handle the family's most sensitive asset. John Pescatore, a Gartner vice president and security analyst, says cloud security can be thought of in a similar way: Users shouldn't rely on their cloud service provider's security features to protect their most critical data.

 

Sensitive information that needs to be protected -- customer data, mission critical applications, production-grade information -- in many cases needs its own security controls to be fully protected. "As you move out to cloud-based models, there are some things you can trust your cloud provider with, but for critical business data and regulation-controlled information, very rarely is the infrastructure going to be enough," Pescatore said during a webinar sponsored by Gartner this week.
