Organizations have long installed enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions on site-or not at all. But today, small-to medium-sized organizations are seriously considering Cloud-based ERP implementations as they come to recognize that Cloud computing functionality is comparable to on-premise solutions-and more cost effective. Cloud computing requires companies to pay only a monthly fee for just the application services they use rather than requiring them to install costly hardware and software and hire an experienced IT staff. And, if the organization eventually chooses to move to an on-premise solution, many vendors today provide the flexibility of a seamless migration path.
This whitepaper details why some SMB organizations are adopting Cloud-based ERP implementations and the benefits these solutions provide. Advantages include lower overall costs, better alignment between technology and specific business needs, scalability, ease of deployment and management, easier upgrades, anytime anywhere access, and high reliability.
