One of the main questions that faces any company in the process of choosing ERP systems is whether to use ERP System integrated on premise or to choose popular cloud solution. The solution may seem obvious: cloud storage is less risky and more convenient for smaller business. The bigger is the business the more likely owners would prefer more secure and controllable on premise platform.

Cloud Platform

There are two basic elements of cloud using experience. 

  • First, customers rent the services, instead of purchasing hardware and software to accomplish the same goal.
  • Second, the vendor is responsible for all the administration, maintenance, capacity planning, backups, and troubleshooting. Cloud platforms offer significant amounts of storage and more availability to a variety of users, simultaneously.

When you choose a new ERP system, one of the most critical factors in your decision is whether you will choose on-premise ERP or cloud-based ERP. On-premise ERP is installed locally on your computers and servers, being constantly under your full control. Cloud-based ERP will be installed on third-party servers with access through a Web-browser.

Our clients evaluate differently their SAP Business One on-cloud experience. The main concern remains about cloud security data standards and practice, speed of accessing data, data crush in case of network failures and malfunction. Nevertheless, more clients become more trustful to cloud solutions as cloud security technologies are implemented at much higher levels by reputable cloud vendors.

The benefits of cloud solution are the following:

  • The capacity you get exactly matches your needs.
  • You pay only for what you use.
  • Economies of scale result in lower costs.
  • The service is provided by a vendor who is experienced in running large scale compute and network systems.

Basic cloud solution is cheaper and economies are different depending on the number of users. Due to the development of cloud technologies SMBs now easily finance acquisition, implementation and maintenance of ERP system. The basic implementation period is around one month, if no additional time is needed for special customization.
