Businesses should take advantage of ‘golden age for software’

One of the most revolutionary developments in entertainment media is the MP3. Consumers no longer need to go to a record store to browse through albums. Rather, records are available through services like iTunes, where music lovers can either buy a whole album or a single song, and listen to it on a device that's smaller than a deck of cards in less than 30 seconds.

But, most importantly, MP3s made music digital. While organizing a library of more than 10,000 songs meant filling shelves to capacity with rows and stacks of CD cases in the past, one only needs a smartphone now. That extensive library can now be accessed, reorganized and shared in seconds, rather than hours.  

In addition to improved sound quality, the aforementioned benefits that MP3s have over CDs and records are considerably obvious.

Companies that have integrated unified communications (UC) with their legacy systems have seen that just like MP3s, UC makes businesses operate more simply and therefore, more efficiently, while adding more functionality.

Businesses are catching on to IP-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions, as Phil Murphy, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research, wrote for an article for InformationWeek.

"We're entering a golden age for software. For more and more companies, software is the business, it is the way firms will differentiate," Murphy said. "It doesn't matter whether you're in financial services, energy, public sector, consumer products, insurance or healthcare. You can no longer look at software as a back-office, automation or support function."

Any businesses that are interested in taking advantage of UC and other IT solutions should reach out to leading technology consulting firm, Subsidium Technologies. With their guidance, businesses can confidently find the most practical services to integrate with their legacy systems.
