How to choose between a cloud and on-premises e-signature solution – eSignLive publishes new article

July 20, 2010

Montreal, QC, July 20, 2010  - Silanis Technology today published a new article that discusses the various deployment options available for electronic signatures. The complimentary article provides a concise overview of the differences between a dedicated on-premises solution, a dedicated hosted solution, and a shared Software-as-as-Service (SaaS). It concludes with a practical guide to choosing the right solution or service based on an organization’s process, compliance and IT requirements, time-to-market needs, and budget and personnel resources. “As organizations make electronic signatures a strategic priority in 2010 and beyond, a growing number of solutions and deployment options are emerging, each with their own unique characteristics, business focus, and return-on-investment,” said Tommy Petrogiannis, CEO and co-founder of Silanis. Adding to the confusion is the buzz around ‘Cloud-Computing’ and ‘Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)’. These terms have practically become synonymous in the media with the “future of computing” and the “demise” of traditional on-premises solutions. The article discusses the strengths and limitations of each deployment option. A quick reference guide then compares each of the solutions and services in terms of their:

  • Level of customization
  • Signing characteristics
  • Ability to enforce business rules and handle exceptions 
  • Ideal application areas
  • Integration with other IT systems
  • IT cost, deployment and support
  • Pricing structure
  • Time-to-market requirements
  • And more
