In the past few years the biggest and oldest ERP providers earned a reputation for time-consuming deployments, costly maintenance, outdated user interfaces, and general inflexibility.
But as enterprise solutions market is changing through the dynamics created by new technologies and devices, ERP providers are forced to move from their rigid image to more flexible, cloud based and user friendly image.
Consumer level applications and social platforms have transformed the thinking of people towards software and business applications.
Business users and IT specialists are looking for faster deployments and less maintenance, therefore the use of cloud solutions – especially in the form of software as a service (SaaS) – has increased rapidly.
Demand for ERP on Cloud Solutions
Companies are looking for ready made platforms they can build their specific solutions on, with least effort in product development.
An InformationWeek’s 2014 State of Cloud report found that 64% of companies (all with 50 or more employees) using some form of cloud technology have at least one SaaS app in the mix.
Research firm Gartner predicted that at least 30% of service-oriented businesses will move the majority of their ERP applications to the cloud by 2018.
PwC recent analysis of ERP on Cloud adoption shows that net new license revenues for traditional ERP systems have been declining since 2013 to a level that has already been surpassed by global revenue from cloud-based SaaS solutions.
Why Cloud Computing Matters?
ERP on cloud benefits customers in multiple ways, from providing application scalability and overall business flexibility to reduction of hardware costs and implementation time.
Cloud computing technology, especially the SaaS model, made it easier for small and medium companies to acquire cloud ERP solutions and not have to manage hardware, software, and upgrades while reducing up-front expenses.
