Can I Host My ERP in the Cloud?




June 7, 2019

The power of today’s tech infrastructure means that for many companies it is tempting to integrate all data, hardware and software in to one unit.  And why not? This consolidation doesn’t just facilitate better control, it helps create systems and processes that are repeatable at scale. And that means a future that includes growth, not confusion.

When disparate software systems and tools are brought together as part of a cohesive strategy you have what is known as Enterprise Resource Planning, or ERP. Generally, ERP systems have traditionally been on-site and used to store various types of data for a multitude of computerized functions throughout the entire organization. When ERP systems were first developed they were only utilized by larger enterprises, but today ERPs provide benefits to companies of all types and sizes.

Now, with the numerous advantages of leveraging cloud solutions across a growing list of services, many organizations are looking to benefit anywhere they can. Naturally, one of those areas is ERP.

For example, countless organizations utilize JD Edwards to support a diverse set of business processes. With over 80 application modules and key industry solutions such like manufacturing, asset intensive, projects and services, and consumer package goods, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne provides users an integrated ERP software suite. This tooling empowers organizations to create separate operating environments while still allowing for consolidation of business data and transparency.

Infor is another enterprise software solution that provides ERP end-to-end solutions across all industries, but Infor’s solutions are brought together by cutting edge artificial intelligence. Well over 65,000 companies around the world utilize Infor and they are a global leader in business software products for companies in industry specific markets from Manufacturing to Healthcare to Retail. Additionally, Infor builds complete industry suites in the cloud and integrates easily into existing systems, leveraging data science to efficiently deploy technology that puts user experience first.

IDC MarketScape recently named SAP a 2019 leader for their single in-memory cloud ERP solution. SAP is a market leader in enterprise application software, with 77% of the world’s transaction revenue utilizing an SAP system. With their advanced analytics technologies, machine learning, and Internet of Things (IoT) SAP helps transform their client’s businesses into intelligent enterprises. SAP helps the world run better and improves people’s lives and with a global network of customers, partners, employees, and thought leaders, SAP is a solution that organizations of all sizes are utilizing.

But while these three ERP solutions and countless others have long been hosted on company-owned servers and infrastructure, almost all of them can now be run on the cloud.  That’s right, the ERP system that governs approvals, workflows, inventory, and resource planning can now operate better than ever on AWS, Azure, or any number of other cloud infrastructure offerings.
