Cloud solutions hold the potential to dramatically change the businesses that adopt them

Data: 28-02-2012

As I said in an earlier post about ERP Prediction for 2012, this year cloud-based ERP will continue to gain ground at the expense of traditional ERP. Why? Because enterprises will continue to adopt SaaS-based applications to replace legacy, high-maintenance and often marginally effective systems in use today. What managers do not know about cloud is that behind the well-known benefits – cost savings and operations improvements -, there are also some benefits that can potentially change the game for many companies that are willing to be very proactive in managing potential downside. Those are the things I wanna talk about. Easier change management of infrastructure including maintenance and upgrades The use of cloud solutions allows companies to improve the agility to deploy solutions and choice between vendors, especially when cloud interoperability will become a reality. Or, at least, more than it is today. Cloud computing also offers an online […]
