In the past trading houses had only two options: spreadsheets or big-budget custom software development programs. Now SaaS-delivered solutions combined with Cloud Computing offer a real, cost-effective alternative. With the global economy, regulatory environment and credit shrinkage increasingly mandating formalized systems for even small trading companies, SaaS offers fast-start, turnkey solutions without up-front investment or resource demands.

Cloud-based applications — aka Software as a Service (SaaS) — have seen steady growth over the past few years and will continue to grow.
Gartner, Inc., Cloud Computing: The Next Generation of Outsourcing, Ben Pring, November 1, 2010

According to Technology Research Analyst Firm Gartner…

We are in the midst of a fundamental shift, as more enterprises start to use services enabled by cloud technologies. This will heavily impact IT services providers, who must now consider strategies for coping with profound changes in the marketplace or risk being left behind.
Cloud Computing:
The Next Generation Of Outsourcing
Ben Pring, November 1, 2010
According to Technology Research Analyst Firm Gartner…
Increasingly, hosted or SaaS-based solutions are gaining favor among end users as a means of reducing capital costs, deployment times and support overheads. While traditionally these solutions were preferred options for smaller end users or end users with limited functional requirements, as the functional capabilities of SaaS - or application service provider (ASP)-based deployments grow, the appeal to larger organizations will widen.

We like to do things differently at Aspect. We showed that with our open pricing policy back in 2011. Now we’re challenging another industry norm by developing a revolutionary set of embedded tools that will empower customers, or their choice of third party consultant, to do that essential final part of the deployment and make whatever changes they want thereafter.
Steve Hughes
President & CEO
Aspect Enterprise Solutions
This is just the beginning. We've hired a new team in our newly formed partnership division whose job is to identify key companies that meet our strategic partner goals for selling, deploying and supporting AspectCTRM solutions. This group will leverage the lengthy development work we've done over the past several years for our AESthetics project, which will allow our deployment partners the ability to learn, configure and deploy our solutions as quickly as we can, in just a few weeks. There's huge cost efficiency savings in this.
