Effectplan can be used as a service in a SaaS cloud solution or installed in a Private Cloud if it is a group organization who wishes to connect multiple companies within the country or internationally. If a custom installation is the preferred solution, this is also possible. The product is built on a modern standardized platform that is supported by most corporate IT departments. Whichever solution you choose, we utilize the latest technology.
You choose freely how you wish Effectplan to work in your organization, and can therefore choose the platform and thus payment model.
By using economies of scale with Effectplan’s SaaS service, you can focus on the use instead of the technology and pay a rent per user. By putting the user and function in the center instead of technical maintenance, expensive security solutions and updates, you can create a cloud-based platform without the need for investment. All you need is a standard internet connection.
The systems are placed in a safety-rated server room with its own power supply, and the environment is secured to resist attempts at hacking and virus attacks with guaranteed high availability. The communication between the user and SaaS is encrypted, and since no part of the system is installed locally with you, this means that no transport of sensitive information via the internet. Backup of the data is made, as well as a continuous adjustment and optimization of the installation (patches).As a SaaS customer, you will always use the latest version without paying for an upgrade.
Just as with the SaaS solution, you can use Effectplan as a Private Cloud, where you practically “try cloud computing at home” instead of turning to a public internet-based service. The idea is that you get all the scalability, measurement and time-to-market benefits of a public cloud service without control, security and recurring expenses to a service provider.
This can be a great advantage if you are a group organization with many companies who can use Effectplan for any business in your organization. This can be combined with Shared Services where a central organization owns the Group’s Business Support and delivers services internally, including Effectplan as its tool. We now have a large number of customers who use the Effectplan in this way.
This is currently the most common way of hosting Effectplan.
Effectplan can of course also be installed locally in your own or an outsourced IT environment and thus might get a better control of all hardware. We choose to install it on virtual servers to get a better economy and scalability.
