Bitrix24 - how to choose license?

Why Bitrix24 On-Premise is more beneficial
than Cloud?

There are several cases when On-premise Bitrix24 editions have to be used instead of cloud - when law requires that data has to be stored in a specific location, when you need source code access, when you need Bitrix24 tools that aren't available in Cloud or when you don't want to use cloud services due to internal policies. 

Feature-wise, the On-premise version includes more tools and modules compared to the Cloud version.
