Why migrate a non-cloud ERP to the cloud?
Is the cloud always the best solution for everything?
The cloud definitely has advantages: less costs, more flexibility and automatic updates. However; the latter is of course no advantage at all if these updates are being processed in the heat of the battle. E.g. during harvest time or a production peak it is of course very damaging if the systems are down for a while or suddenly work differently. ERP is the cornerstone for companies, and companies must rely on this cornerstone 24/7. Migrating an on-premise ERP to the cloud therefore gives best of both worlds.
On-premise ERP in the cloud: the best of both worlds
If an on-premise solution is in the cloud, the customer can indicate when an update will be implemented. As a result, the continuity of the organization is not jeopardized, or only at the moment that causes the least damage. At the same time, companies can take advantage from the benefits of the cloud. In this whitepaper you can read:
• Why it is better to stay on-premise in some cases
• Why not migration, but cloud integration is the better solution
• About different types of migration tools
• About dedicated server hardware in the cloud
