These applications pose a low risk of local system corruption, as they are accessible through a web browser, which in turn is also driving the hosted application management services market. However, as a cloud host essentially gets access to data within businesses, companies may not be able to offer support immediately when businesses need to contact the company if an issue crops up. Hence, the businesses incur less control over their business operations. This factor is hampering the hosted application management services market. Businesses can seamlessly downscale or upscale their cloud resources due to hosted application management services.
