An Introduction to Cloud
On-premise ERP software, rather than storing data in the cloud, stores information within a company’s internal server infrastructure. It tends to be more expensive than cloud-based ERP systems and needs to be updated and serviced to stay current, in addition to taking longer to implement.
On-premise ERP can however be customised which provides greater ROI for larger businesses with complex needs. Cloud helps move a businesses’ IT expenditure to an operational cost, which can be manage monthly.
Advantages of Cloud ERP:
- Reduced hardware maintenance and energy costs
- Less time spent on upgrades and backups
- Options for creating additional users quickly and easily
- Collaborate with different teams in different locations worldwide
- Secure firewall
- Access business-critical information in real-time

and more robust integrations with other software.
