Growing organizations often find it difficult to retain business efficiency, employee productivity, and responsiveness to customer needs. Businesses are hindered by lack of technology or systems that simply cannot keep up with growth, lack the functionality to support daily business operations, and cannot scale up to a growing customer base. An ERP model is the ideal fit for companies, to overcome these challenges and push forward.
Enterprises can move their ERP and other applications to the cloud, primarily to avoid capital expenditure on hardware, software, and services. The other reasons are that enterprises are more focused to concentrate on their core business activities and are eliminating the hassle of maintaining their IT infrastructure. The services are often covered by service level agreements (SLAs) assuring complete ownership and control to the customers. Further scalability and flexibility are comparatively easier when applications are in the cloud.
With the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, consumption is billed on a subscription basis as they are renting usage of the application from a third-party provider. Besides, companies both big and small are taking advantage of the SaaS delivery model because it offers several advantages over the traditional delivery models. The web helps remove most of the location-dependent anxiety that gets in the way of communication, collaboration, and trading. Traditionally, software used to be delivered in boxes, and had to be installed in the same building as the people that used it. The web removes these constraints, enabling SaaS, which in turn becomes the basis for innovative ways of interacting and doing business.
