upgrade-erp-to-cloudThe willingness of organizations to consider a SaaS or cloud deployment model for ERP has steadily increased in recent years. At the same time, the willingness to consider the traditional on-premise model has steadily decreased. These observations are made in the Aberdeen Group's whitepaper, SaaS and Cloud ERP Observations: Is Cloud Right for You?. While the data from this report is from 2012, we see this trend continuing with significant forecasted incremental growth in cloud licenses and seats.

However, the decision of deployment method can have a significant effect on many of the top selection criteria. Today's trends indicate that SaaS and cloud ERP deployments are gaining steam and delivering impressive results for organizations leading the way.

This is no longer a technical decision that should be made by the IT department. ERP upgrades are now important enough that senior management needs to fully understand both the timing and project plan.
