Why you should put your enterprise business software (ERP) in the cloud?

The decision to migrate your business software to the cloud is a big one; and most of the dialogue is usually around money. Here are four reasons, besides money, to put your ERP in the cloud:

1. Lower Risk

In the cloud, your ERP’s server receives attentive, around-the-clock service. Your dingy server room is now a world class data center; complete with back-up power generators and natural disaster mitigation. This translates into less risk of downtime or security breach due to misconfiguration, a resource overload, or even fire.

2. Faster Fixes

When something does go wrong with your ERP in the cloud, you can expect a faster fix than a traditional IT team could deliver, due to SLA uptime guarantees and better monitoring.

3. Better Security

There are very, very, few companies out there that can spend a billion dollars on cyber security. Microsoft is one of those companies. When you trust Azure with your ERP hosting, you are putting your data in an environment that is more impenetrable than your server room.

4. Scalability

Scalability is the ability of an application to service an additional load with a linear increase in resource usage. Scalability is important in any distributed application. Limits to scalability usually center around resource use and dependencies inadvertently created in the application’s design. With your ERP in the cloud, there is no limit in scalability.
