More businesses today are dependent on the human capital than on natural resources.

Tax changes - once effected in a cloud instance, are applicable to all the subscribing customers, automatically. In an On-Premise Enterprise application, patches will have to be applied separately.

Multi-tenancy delivers the requisite capability. An economy of scale in maintenance ushers in affordability for the customer.
