This paper will give you an understanding of how a move from an on-premises ERP solution to a cloud-based one might affect your business, and it will introduce you to the basics of what you need to do to get the most out of the cloud transformation.
Whitepapers, trade and business news media, IT specialists and other generally solid information sources often talk about moving ERP to the cloud as a strategy.
It is in fact a tool or enabler for ERP strategy and potentially for your infrastructure strategy as well. Nevertheless, a cloud solution can turn your ERP solution on its head – in a good way. It can free up IT costs, which you can then spend on other services that help move your business forward. What is the business case for moving your ERP solution to the cloud? When should you make the move? Which kind of cloud offer should you use? What will it take to bring the solution to the cloud? All these questions (and many more) have become relevant as the cloud transformation of complex software including ERP has become a viable option for many companies.
This paper will take you through seven important considerations that should be analysed, discussed and decided upon as part of your process. Thinking about the following seven issues will help you as you form an opinion on whether to move your ERP solution to the cloud, and how to do it in the way that makes the most sense for your business.
