Five Points to Consider in Migrating Your Company Data to Cloud ERP

Are you considering migrating your business IT management to the cloud? Should you move applications to the cloud to reduce IT burden? If so, which applications? Should you consider ERP?

 

What is ERP?

ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning, a system or managed software to improve your business productivity through internet-hosted applications.

If facilitates centralized file management systems, communications, data organization, and operations.

There is a growing trend to add ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) to the list of applications that should be moved to the cloud. ERP support likely consumes a large chunk of time from your IT staff. Whether hosted or SaaS (software as a service), cloud-based ERP can significantly ease the burden on an overworked IT staff.

Of the many factors to consider in moving ERP to the cloud, five stand out as the most common first issues to address, including security, cost, accessibility, integration and transportability.

1. Security of Cloud-based ERP

While many business owners feel strongly that their data is more secure if it is under their own roof, that is often a misconception. The security and disaster recovery of a professionally managed data center is probably far more secure than the server room of most companies.

2. Cost savings from moving ERP to the cloud

Cloud based ERP eliminates the need to purchase and keep current the hardware and software required to keep ERP software running at peak performance. With most hosting and SaaS ERP offerings, upgrades are included in the fees to significantly cut IT support costs.

3. Access for employees working remotely

According to recent studies, most companies now have employees who work from home or in the field. Keeping those employees connected to the information they need to respond to customers and complete their work is essential. Since cloud-based ERP solutions are designed to be accessed via the internet, remote workers will have the same experience as those workers in the office.

5. The ability to change

Change is part of business, which makes it imperative to ensure that the ERP cloud provider that you work with will support your decision if you decide to move on. The ability to migrate your data to a different platform, should the need arise, is an important discussion to have early on in the decision process. We at Troi.net are Cloud Technology Partners.
