In addition, surveys made among organizations show that 58% of organizations use on-premise-based server infrastructure to host those applications whereas 56% go for private cloud hosting or a datacenter that is remotely managed. On the other hand, some organizations also prefer public cloud mode as well. However, have you ever thought what happens when there are some issues in the functioning of these apps?
