Hosted Applications

Akita’s hosted applications allow you to benefit from updated software without the prohibitive initial costs and inconvenience of upgrading hardware.

Hosted applications, sometimes known as Software as a Service (SaaS), offer a range of benefits over the traditional approach of licensing.

Having software that can be accessed on-demand from a hosted environment unlocks huge benefits. Not least of these is the reduction in the number of software licenses needed for individual computers (and associated fall in costs).

When you choose Akita to provide a hosted server environment, we will migrate the data from your servers and transfer it to the virtual environment. Our virtualisation process is a fast and fully secure service – a rarity in the industry.

Akita offers a fully-managed and completely hassle-free approach to cloud computing which means that applications can be delivered in a virtual environment. Store your data and applications in Akita’s data centres and forget about the hassle of having your own hardware and software to maintain.

Benefits of Hosted applications with Akita

Hosted applications with Akita gives your organisation’s users 24/7 access from anywhere in the world, via a fast, reliable and connection. Below we outline some of the other benefits:

Flexibility

Business applications of all types can be deployed into the Akita cloud, whether these are third party or bespoke applications.

Hosted applications also offer tremendous flexibility. New employees, for example, can be added to the system within minutes and at minimal extra cost. Likewise, any departures can be quickly and securely removed, often with the ongoing monthly costs reducing as well.

Lower Costs with Hosted Applications

A major benefit of hosted application is cost-savings. Alongside savings on individual licenses, there’s savings on hardware.

Traditional software, and the associated hardware needed to run it, are expensive. Companies have to make an upfront capital expenditure for them.

Within a hosted environment, there is no capital outlay at all. Instead, companies just pay a small monthly fee for services needed.

Smarter Working

Hosted applications help to simplify the management of your IT. Hosting applications from a cloud server means that you only need to worry about running one instance of software. This means you can be sure everyone in the office is working off of the same version of the application.

Updating applications is also simple. Rather than work on multiple machines, you only have one hosted version of your software to update.
