Insight: Cloud ERP

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is the most essential business system for many organisations because it runs the critical business processes. Without this software solution, business operations will stop. That is why we devote a separate insight to ERP.

Several companies still use an outdated ERP system. This has to do with the fact that they once opted for a tailor-made system for their company. The company handles certain processes for which the ERP installation has been adapted. This system continued to be used synthetically.

In the cloud


However, these outdated systems no longer fit the modern business operations that organizations strive for. That's why several software vendors have introduced new versions of their solutions. The systems use best practices for verticals. A software package is adjusted much less often. Instead, companies identify more closely with the standards for their industry.

For example, cloud ERP makes it easier for companies to use software updates. They also realise performance increases, they follow a subscription model, and resources are easier to add to implement growth. The cloud is the future, also for ERP.

Ultimately, several major software vendors play a role in the world of ERP. We discuss Oracle, SAP, Microsoft, IFS, NetSuite and Infor.
