Agility, Features, OPEX Pricing Model Propel Demand for Cloud ERP Systems
Cloud ERP has emerged as an agile, dynamic, flexible, cost effective, and swift-to-implement alternative to traditional legacy on-premise ERP software. Cloud ERP systems are still maturing, however, and as a result they have not been fully embraced by the market. But the signs clearly point to more cloud ERP development, adoption, and growth going forward.

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications have become critical business tools by connecting, enabling, automating, integrating, and pinpointing opportunities (and problems) inside core enterprise functions and processes. As a result, they promise to improve productivity, quality, agility, and decision-making.

ERP software typically covers accounting, cost, financial, order, procurement, project, and purchase management, manufacturing, and distribution and warehousing. HR is often included in ERP solutions, but has sufficiently distinct opportunities and challenges to warrant separate research.

But the ability of ERP to deliver on expectations has often been marred by high costs, complex installations (of up to a year or more), errors, usability issues, and inflexibility once installed. Perhaps it’s not unlike companies’ experiences with on-premise CRM systems ten to fifteen years ago.
