Cloud ERP Definition
Cloud ERP is using cloud-based solutions in the form of SaaS (Software-as-a-service), rather than on-premise systems, for enhancing an organization's overall efficiency.Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) involves the use of software and technology for integrated management of business elements and processes like manufacturing, supply chain, human resource, finances, customer services, sales, etc.
Cloud computing is a movement that has taken place in technology applications. Small businesses can now access technologies and computing power from the Internet "clouds" that become the server, the company's software.
Enterprise Resource Planning helps a company to manage the vital cogs of business such as purchasing and inventory management. ERP applications can also include modules for finance and human capital management aspects of organizations.
Cloud computing gives businesses the opportunity to completely transform the way they use and finance information technology. For example, cloud computing existing ERP applications could eliminate the need for a company to buy the necessary server and storage hardware and keep them on-site, which in turn could reduce operational expenses (OPEX). Other industry analysts, however, point out that the problems associated with ERP software deployments, such as integration issues between ERP and legacy systems, would simply be transferred to the cloud.
