Cloud ERP. Overview. Differences with other software

By Rise SA Team, September 15, 2022
ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software has gained immense popularity among organizations in the past two decades. Unlike other software, ERP is not limited to a single division or a specific function of a business. It encompasses a wide range of business processes and consolidates all data into one application.

In other words, ERP is designed for the entire organization, including its branches and subsidiaries located across different regions, countries, or the world. This comprehensive solution connects all automated business processes into a single application, making it unique and invaluable for businesses. With its extensive functions, modules, and capabilities, ERP software offers immense value to businesses.
Why go cloud

The move to cloud technology has made ERP even more valuable and accessible for end users and businesses. The cloud allows users to access the system from any laptop or computer, regardless of their location. This shift also brings significant benefits in terms of cost savings, data security, and backups, alleviating concerns for IT managers and system administrators.

For instance, if a virus or technical issue occurs with a laptop or desktop computer that has on-premise software installed, it can impede data integrity and disrupt business operations. However, with cloud technology, these risks are eliminated. Critical data is no longer at risk of being lost or damaged. If one laptop experiences a breakdown, users can easily switch to another device and continue accessing the system without any hassle.

Deloitte study on 500 leaders

According to a recent study conducted by Deloitte, 500 IT leaders were asked about the primary factors that influenced their decision to migrate to the cloud. The survey revealed the following main reasons for moving to the cloud:

- Security and data protection accounted for 58% of the respondents' motivations.
- Data modernization was cited as a significant factor by 44% of the participants.
- Cost and performance improvements in IT operations were considered important by 32% of the respondents.

These findings indicate that adopting cloud technology allows companies to achieve substantial savings in terms of security, data protection, and IT operational costs and performance.
