What’s a server room?

January 26th, 2010   /     /   Smarter Identity

Companies of the 21st century don’t know what a server room is. If you are setting up a new business today, you will not be buying a single server and you can get all of your critical business applications up and running in a few hours by renting them online. Even if you’re an established business, you are either moving in-house applications into the cloud or you are using new applications in the cloud. 

Some of the applications you need today will only be available in the cloud. Unless you have decided that your products are not worth marketing, you will have to use multiple online marketing and communications tools. Twitter is a good example. If don’t have a Twitter strategy already, you are probably doing something wrong.

Here at OneLogin we use 16 different applications and that number will only go up. Sales, marketing, customer support, billing, accounting, web hosting, engineering, telephony and project management are entirely web based. We don’t know any of our passwords though, because we all log in using our OneLogin dashboard. Click-click, and we’re in.

Very few of today’s web applications have factored in single sign-on and OneLogin has come up with a pragmatic and non-intrusive approach that gets both users and vendors up and running in minutes. We already support more than 150 applications and that number will continue to grow.

Do yourself a favor and take OneLogin for a ride. It’s free for the first five applications. Free as in beer.
