The high cost of business disruption that accompanies changes to enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems is a source of frustration for many businesses and organizations. If you decide to upgrade your business software and move to the cloud, will the cloud meet your expectations?
Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) is conducting a research study to understand your key challenges and pain points with respect to your current ERP system, as well as your expectations of cloud-based ERP solutions. Please take a few minutes to answer this brief survey and help us measure the expectations you have of your ERP solutions, whether traditional or in the cloud.
To thank you for your time, TEC is offering one-week free access to its software evaluation models and vendor data to participants who complete the survey, as well as access to a report of the results of this survey. Take the survey now.
Thank you for the access. I am very excited about Cloud ERP and the potential opportunities for customers, however, I like to speak to the minority opinion for a balanced discussion. Just as ERP was deemed the panacea for all business automation pains, Cloud ERP is positioned as a revolutionary approach to deploying an ERP solution. Cloud ERP provides a solution that is flexible, adaptable, scalable, efficient, and affordable. Customers can enjoy painless upgrades, rapid deployment, and easy customization along with availability “anywhere at anytime”! Practically speaking, Cloud ERP is just another deployment option available to customers. The activities required for an “on premise” ERP implementation are also required for Cloud ERP. The scope and responsibility for the implementation activities may be different but most assuredly they are still required. Let’s further discuss the key impacts that a Cloud ERP deployment will have on the implementation.
