With the growth of SaaS solutions in treasury, it seems that everyone is clamoring to be “in the cloud”.
This high demand is for good reason – cloud deployments offer major advantages for treasury departments who implement treasury technology. With every vendor trying to be SaaS (even when they’re not) this also creates much confusion in terms of vocabulary, determining what cloud really is, and more importantly, why as a user you should care.

- The difference between “SaaS” and “cloud”
- Cost and ROI
- System security
- Availability and disaster recovery
- Product innovation
