How can your business transform with cloud ERP?

By now, you have most likely heard something about cloud-based ERP and it’s benefits. However, have you looked at your own business and thought about how it would look (and run) if you started using a cloud-based solution? Whether you have or you haven’t, this page will help you imagine your business running on cloud. You will also see how different your organisation will be running on cloud than on-premise system or on no ERP system at all.

High levels of downtime and latency:

How well an on-premise system works depends mostly on how well you maintain the systems and the power source it runs on. If you don’t update the system whenever there is a new update available, it can slow down some processes. This will lead you to high downtime and latency levels, as a result. Updating them, however, always comes with extra costs for hardware and software changes. This leads to more downtime. Load-shedding also leads to higher downtime and latency, especially when back-up power supplies run into issues.
Low latency and improved energy efficiency:
A cloud-based system does not use heavy-duty hardware and servers to run itself, which means you don’t need a server room that uses high amounts of energy once you move to cloud ERP. Cloud systems also get affordable updates more often than on-premise solutions. This keeps them functioning very well, lowering the overall latency your business experiences.

Complicated data management:

On-premise ERP solutions run on data centres (a group of servers), with each server processing and storing different types of data. This lack of integration makes it hard to manage all data, and thus, also makes it hard to use data correctly.

Optimised data management:
ERP solutions make it easy to run all core business processes, but cloud ERP systems make managing all those processes even easier. The integration of business processes in cloud-based solutions makes sure all company data is stored in one, safe place (master data). This also gives you clear visibility of all company data, which is automatically updated across the business by the system.

High risk of data loss:

With on-premise solutions, you are always just one malfunction or system crash away from losing all your company data forever. To keep this from happening, some businesses invest more money into back-up storage at a different location, but if those servers also crash or a natural disaster takes place where they are stored, the data is lost once again.
Better security:
When you store your data in the cloud, you don’t have to worry about power failures, system crashes, or natural disasters destroying it. Instead, you can access it from anywhere and at any time you need to. What’s more, cloud ERP solutions come with powerful security tools that are always being updated to ensure that your data stays secure.
