Choosing a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software can be a difficult, and sometimes confusing process. The multiple deployment options available for businesses applications today such as on-premises (client-server) or the Cloud (Web) adds another layer of complexity to your decision. It’s important to understand the pros and cons of each method and choose wisely as the decisions you make now will have extremely important, and long-lasting impact on your organization in the long run.

Below we will outline some of the high-level pros of an ERP system deployment in the cloud. 

Some of the primary benefits of running some or all of your IT operations in the cloud are:

  • Lower start-up costs and shorter time-to-benefit
  • Low initial hardware requirements
  • Simple software management and system administration, which can help trim IT budget
  • The ability to quickly scale IT capacity to accommodate growth or increased volume
  • Op-Ex vs Cap-Ex depreciation

Any solution that you consider should have the flexibility to leverage the cloud as a deployment option. It may be appropriate to initially run some mission-critical applications on-premises for security/compliance reasons, while other applications are better suited for migration to the cloud.

Regardless of your choice, it is important to choose a solution that will accommodate your unique business requirements whether that be on-premises, in the cloud, or a hybrid deployment approach.
