Locally Installed Software Is Dead


KCJones

If you haven’t noticed yet, there’s less actual software installed on local computers and more being accessed through online connections to remote computers, or at least to remote storage systems. This transition makes a lot of sense for a lot of reasons and those of us in the supply chain are likely to be prime beneficiaries of the trend.

Picking an email system like gmail or even Yahoo mail is an obvious choice because of the nature of email – the content moves from one computer to another over the Internet. When online connections were more temporary, expensive, and less reliable it made sense to use a local application like Microsoft Outlook to handle the sending and receiving of the mail as well as editing the messages. But those limitations are long gone for most of us.
