Key Highlights

  • Cloud CRM is a CRM software in which the application and data are stored, or hosted, on the CRM provider company's own servers in a data center and accessed through an internet browser. This type of software is also called Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). It is different from on-premise or installed software, which has higher upfront costs and different skilled personnel requirements. Cloud CRM is also known as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) CRM, cloud-based CRM, online CRM, and Web CRM.
  • With a cloud-based CRM system, all the infrastructure to run the software is owned and maintained by the software provider. Organizations using CRM operate the software on their computers through their internet connection. CRM providers maintain and secure the organization's data at their own locations. This saves the organizations from having to pay loads of upfront costs for establishing the kind of infrastructure required to store and secure all that data.
  • Because the hardware running the platform does not belong to the user organization, the organization does not have to arrange the updates and maintenance required to keep it running smoothly. Instead, it is the CRM cloud provider's job to handle data migrations, fix bugs as they appear, update the software, and ensure security to their clients and their businesses.
  • EU GDPR does not apply in the UK after the end of this Brexit transition period on 31 December 2020. However, the United Kingdom's DPA 2018 already enacted the EU GDPR's requirements into UK law and, with effect from 1 January 2021, the DPPEC (Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Communications (Amendments, etc.). Regulations 2019 amended the DPA 2018 and combined it with the requirements of the EU GDPR to create a new, United Kingdom-specific data protection regime that works in the United Kingdom context after Brexit as part of the DPA 2018.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic brought digitalization, which led to the growth of data generation and the need to analyze the data generated. It also led to an increase in digitalization to cope with the remote-working environment. Europe is at an inflection point in the region's digital transformation with the cloud. The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed European companies to embrace basic forms of cloud migration rapidly.
