Cloud ERP Trends for Small and Mid-Size Businesses

Visit Website View Our Posts

An article published by eWeek talks about thr fact that even though small and mid-size businesses (SMB) are not as knowledgeable about cloud solutions, they are more than willing to purchase one.  With the proper knowledge and education on cloud technology, 20 percent of decision makers stated they were “likely” or “very likely” to implement a cloud computing solution in the next 12 months while almost 10 percent were “likely” or “very likely” to implement in the next three months.

The big attraction for cloud solutions is the ability to share resources, the security of the data and the reduced cost of using a cloud service versus traditional on-premises solutions. Cloud solutions have proven to be very efficient in helping reach company goals, which is another reason SMBs are purchasing and utilizing these services. “SMBs want to drive efficiencies, and cloud technologies are some of the most innovative solutions to assist them in doing that,” the article states.

Although cloud solutions are fairly new to the ERP space, they are quickly making significant headway within the market as another option for businesses especially when it comes to quicker implementation and reduced costs.

With Microsoft Dynamics enterprise resource planning (ERP) offerings, customers have a choice of on-premise deployment, cloud-based solutions, or a combination of the two.

  1. Thank you for the insight. I am excited about Cloud ERP, yet I like to take a balanced approach. Just as ERP was deemed the panacea for all business automation pains, Cloud ERP is positioned as a revolutionary approach to deploying an ERP solution. Cloud ERP provides a solution that is flexible, adaptable, scalable, efficient, and affordable. Customers can enjoy painless upgrades, rapid deployment, and easy customization along with availability “anywhere at anytime”! Practically speaking, Cloud ERP is just another deployment option available to customers. The activities required for an “on premise” ERP implementation are also required for Cloud ERP. The scope and responsibility for the implementation activities may be different but most assuredly they are still required. The following article will provide more insight on the impacts that Cloud ERP will have on the entire ERP lifecycle.
