I am trying to find out what savings can be made, for a translation company, from accessing the software as a service, rather than having to buy in the necessary hardware, on top of the actual software package - This may be mainly relevant to those of you who have bought it in to your translation company.
from my personal point of view, hardware costs are nowadays not a problem. If you invest several (tens of) thousands of Euros into a TMS solution, another 2,000 Euros investment into a powerful server (including daily HDD mirroring etc.) won't hurt.
I don't think that hosting a TM server will bring you much, unless you provide an interface for the most widely used CAT tools.
Complete desktop hosting (including MS Office and other common applications and suites) may have some potential though.
