Enterprise resource planning (ERP) cloud

Offerings | Differentiators | Success stories


Modern business application software is rapidly transforming how corporate IT implements critical systems. CIOs are rethinking their approach to enterprise resource planning (ERP) — thanks to modular, cloud-based, business applications that offer viable alternatives to the unwieldy, inflexible, and expensive systems that have long dominated the sector.

Key reasons for the change in trend

The shift towards hybrid / co-existence ERP systems (cloud and on-premises) can be seen in the speed and degree of investment in cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications.

Key benefits of co-existence / hybrid cloud

  • Lower cost of ownership because of subscription model
  • No capital expenditure
  • Relatively short implementation timeline
  • Modern user experience

Traditionally, IT landscapes in global organizations often have complex and high-maintenance IT landscape plagued by complex ERP systems. They often deal with several challenges that include:

  • Heterogeneous and complex IT landscape: Intricate landscape involving multiple ERP systems, legacy systems, IT systems of acquired businesses — all at different stages of maturity
  • Inconsistent and non-scalable processes: Need to create a unified global business model and sustainable processes to support future growth objectives of the organization
  • Reactive decision support systems (DSS): Lack of or sub-optimal, organization-wide, DSS which are dependent on IT personnel
  • Lengthy implementation cycles: Complex and lengthy implementations and rapid technology advancements requiring frequent investments
  • High total cost of ownership (TCO): Increasing TCO of the traditional on-premise ERP systems and associated infrastructure
