Cloud ERP. Overview. Differences with other software.

ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software has become significantly 
more popular among various organizations in the last 10-20 years.

The main difference between ERP software and other types of software can be summarized as follows. ERP is not just for one division of the organization or for a specific function of a business. It covers in-depth the majority of business processes bringing all business data into one application.

In other words, it is for the whole organization at large - and its branches, subsidiaries that are based in different parts of a country or the world. ERP solution connects all automated business processes in one single application. It makes ERP software unique, in-depth and comprehensive in terms of the functions, modules, capabilities it covers and the value it brings to a particular business.

Why go cloud
With a recent move to cloud, it makes ERP even more valuable and accessible in terms of the end users and business benefits. 
Cloud means that one can access the system from any laptop or computer wherever you are. Cloud drastically cuts down on IT infrastructure costs, data security and data backups, taking away worries and headaches from IT managers and system admins. 

For example, if there is a virus or sudden malfunction with a laptop or desktop computer on which on-premise software was downloaded, it will impede data integrity and business continuity should critical data and info be damaged or affected. 

With cloud, these challenges become a thing of the past. No more issues of losing critical data. If one laptop breaks down, one can access the system from another laptop. It is as easy as 123.

A Deloitte study on 500 leaders
In a recent study done by Deloitte whereby 500 IT leaders 
were surveyed on what were the main reasons for moving cloud, 
the following reasons were the main ones for moving cloud:

  • Security and data protection   58%
  • Data modernization                44%
  • Cost and performance of IT operations    32%
The above results show that going cloud empowers companies
to save substantially on security, data protection and cut down 
on cost and performance of IT operations
