ERP Comparison Guide: Executive Summary

  1. 1. Researching and finding meaningful information about the world of ERP, accounting, operations management, sales force management, and other critical business technology is challenging. Internal systems play a critical role in enabling an organization’s ability to expand, maximize strategic opportunities and deliver needed internal efficiencies and controls. As businesses outgrow their solutions or seek new system benefits, they face the daunting task of researching and selecting new solutions. With a broad landscape of seemingly endless options for ERP, accounting, operations management, sales force management and other business software, it is challenging to research and secure meaningful insights to drive the right decision process for your business. Software vendors still tightly control much of the detailed information about their respective solutions. Admittedly, much of it is biased and showcases their product in the most favorable light. While this type of information can be useful, we offer an objective and multidimensional perspective. This whitepaper provides an objective perspective of the landscape of today’s ERP solutions and the evaluation criteria that should be considered. Further, these key considerations are highlighted with side-by-side comparisons of ERP solutions provided in the cloud versus on-premise. This guide includes: • Comparative information contrasting cloud and on-premise across a multitude of consideration criteria • Information for top ERP solutions as illustrations of typical characteristics of cloud and on-premise solutions. • Guidance regarding recommended evaluation criteria when considering a new ERP solution.
