Sorry for the delay in posting again. I've been quite invested on the elections
Thanks for replying to my post
I think the hosted decision is a way to avoid unnecessary headaches and will allow me to focus on other critical challenges that require immediate attention.
OTOH, moving to On-Premise is just a possibility for the future, not definite decision. The advantages would be a higher control of the system and the possibility of higher customization; the disadvantage would be the cost of keeping the servers and the system ourselves.
Finally, there is a considerable number of "certified" companies offering this, so I wonder if there are other parameters to narrow down the options and finally arrive to a sensible choice.
