The location of our customer’s data is really important to us at HRBoss.  Our customers often ask, and indeed demand, that the location of their data is well-defined. This could be for many reasons including compliance, data residency or preference of choice. For example, clients often request that, “The central storage location of our application data must stay within China/Japan”. When data in a particular location is geographically closer to our customers, they'll see lower pings and better performance from that provider- so, of course, it is a reasonable request for them to make.

Business process management, implementing a new workflow or solution, is one project that is often full of tools, yet short on focus.
