“What are the challenges with migrating from an on-premise solution to a cloud-based solution?”


There are a number of challenges between an on-premise and a cloud-based solution for digital signage, but I think the biggest challenge is security. Depending on the company you work for, there may be an entire department or a number of departments that are totally focused on security and mitigating risk. When you have an on-premise solution, everything to make the system work is installed on a company-owned computer, contained inside the company firewall and maintained by your own company. When you have a cloud-based solution, all the hardware involved is outside the company and out of your control. The software is installed on the vendor’s computers and accessed through a web browser. Many companies will not allow this or will allow it but make it very difficult to get approved.
