There has been a dramatic surge of organizations taking their business applications to the cloud as fear and doubt of what the cloud can do is demystified.  It is important to remember that all clouds are not created equal.  Just as the…

It seems that companies’ biggest hindrance to establishing their cost per invoice is that they are too busy with their daily tasks, or that they simply don’t know of an easy way…
