Determining what you want is worth it.
Knowing where you are going is worth it.
Knowing your personal ambitions is worth it.
What is probably worth even more than the above is, knowing what you are willing to tolerate.
In one of his famous expressions, Tony Robbins says,
In life you will get what you tolerate.
I judge this expression real in my personal life.
Usually this level of tolerance is also associated with a number.
When it comes to weight, what number can you tolerate? 72, 85, 95KG?
When it comes to money, what is the minimum you can afford to earn per month? 300, 1000, 5000 Euros per month?
In any case, it is useful to define and be very clear about this minimum.
By defining it, we are aware of when we violate it and
when we are conscious, we can act faster to correct it as well.
On-premise CRM: A traditional method of CRM implementation. It involves installing CRM software to the company’s in-house data center computers. The entire responsibility of maintenance, control, and management of the application rests on the IT department of the organization. This approach allows control over all facets of the CRM application. This includes the service level agreements, security, and compliance policies. The on-premise approach limits the risk of data inaccessibility to the organization on account of connectivity issues with the CRM vendor. On premises CRM implementation effectively handles issues related to security, reliability, and data migration.(2)
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) CRM: SaaS CRM is being widely adopted by organizations because on-premise CRM are becoming redundant and obsolete in capability and requirement handling. They are either integrating poorly with the other enterprise systems or are unable to handle the organic growth of the organization. This has necessitated the need to shift towards the SaaS model.

The SaaS CRM model involves implementing a web-based CRM software from a CRM vendor. The CRM software is configured either by the enterprise’s IT department or a service provider and maintained by the SaaS vendor. The approach is easy to maintain, cost efficient, and accommodates the dynamic nature of fluctuating CRM requirements.(4)
