Revolutionary developments in the world of cutting-edge technology have opened doors to untold opportunities. They are defined by unprecedented possibilities. New technologies continue to emerge, driving innovation and change across industries worldwide. Businesses find themselves under pressure to adapt and continually reinvent themselves to keep up.
The evolution of cloud computing technology sees an increasing number of businesses shifting towards a digital business model, and migrating to cloud computing solutions such as cloud ERP. The ability to change and adapt to this fast-paced digital world has now become vital to the success and longevity of virtually every business.
Cloud ERP is Software as a Service (SaaS) that is hosted on cloud computing platforms. This allows users to access their ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software via the internet, anytime and anywhere.
This technology is gaining traction, and quickly becoming the standard approach for businesses of all sizes. Gartner forecasts that in 2019, $206.2 billion will be spent on public cloud services, an increase of 17% from 2018. As a growing number of businesses migrate to the cloud, others are still dabbling in this technology, not realizing the tremendous benefits that it has to offer.
Cloud ERP vs. On-Premise ERP: What’s the Difference?
Technically, the only difference between cloud ERP and on-premise ERP is the physical location of the software. On-premise ERP software is located on-site, within the server infrastructure of a business. Meanwhile, cloud ERP is, as its name suggests, based on the cloud. Check out this blog and this blog from Commercient for more details on Cloud ERP vs. an on-premise solution.
