CentricMinds Intranet Software

Hosted Intranet.

Hosted Intranet versus On Premise Intranet?

All successful Intranets need a good home. The question everyone faces is do you agree to a hosted Intranet in the cloud, or is the consensus of the organization to keep in on premise? There are valid arguments for both, but ultimately your needs are going to be unique to you.

Below we've compiled below some high level arguments for and against hosting your new Intranet in the cloud and keeping it on premise.

For Hosted

Depending on who you choose to host your new Intranet with, the cloud offers increasing economies of scale that are tough to beat if choosing to invest in local infrastructure. A hosted intranet is also better suited to either a CapEx or OpEx financial model and provides flexibility in upsizing and downsizing the infrastructure depending on your usage. From one year to the next, your cloud provider will also improve the underlying environment of your intranet without you needing to change anything.

Against Hosted

There will be certain scenarios where the need to have your intranet on premise outweighs the opportunity for a hosted intranet. These may include the need to support complex integrations; the preference not to allow external traffic into your internal domain, and the nature of the type of content and data your organization manages. Depending on the technology stack of the intranet, there may also be a preference to combine the intranet application into an existing managed environment supported by an internal IT team.

CentricMinds is a unique Intranet platform offered as both a hosted and on premise application.

For On Premise

That warm feeling of having all your assets tucked in under your roof, where you can choose to integrate other internal systems safely behind your firewall and where no issue is to big to manage yourself. The benefits for hosting an intranet on premise are obvious, and there’s a reason it’s still a preference for many over an externally hosted intranet.

Against On Premise

While managing your intranet on premise might add some comfort, the cost, time and effort in building, managing and refreshing infrastructure over time is being outdone by nimble, cheap and highly scalable cloud infrastructure. The move to the cloud is now commonplace, and the opportunities for accessing third party services within your hosted intranet ultimately drive greater user adoption.

CentricMinds is a unique Intranet platform offered as both a hosted and on premise application. Our customers have also implemented configurations of CentricMinds to meet bespoke business needs. These include running CentricMinds on premise, but having a replicated environment in the cloud for their staff to access while on the road.
