But as we move from infrastructure to platform
00:26
to software, it's a service.

We see the responsibility shift to the vendor, and that's very desirable in many cases. So with infrastructure is the system, you know, they're the ones we're the one. They're the ones doing the network to storage servers, the virtual ization and
00:44
partially responsible for the operating systems. Now, on our end,
00:48
we have our applications are data is still I responsibility, the middle environment sort of the access to the vacuum server. So we still have some responsibility now with platforms as a service, our applications in our data, but they're providing us the means on which to run and develop. That code

software is a service the vendor is responsible for. All elements were just simply accessing ah, front end application that would allow us to use and manipulate the information. But it's stored and it's maintained on virtual servers in their environment, so
