Business automation is the need of the hour today, especially when we are struggling to get through the deadly disease, Coronavirus and locked at home. We have to have a platform that understands the unique needs and requirements of our company and possesses all the qualities to be autonomous enough to work as a standalone system.
When we expect so many traits from one ERP platform, the only name that comes to our mind is SAP Business One ERP system. SAP Business One, a globally accepted ERP system has proven capabilities and to manage the entire workflow seamlessly.
Yet, with all things good in one suit-in-a-box ERP system, SAP Business One, we want to highlight a couple of facts that you should consider while purchasing the same or migrating from your existing SAP product to the upgraded version. This blog talks about the major differences between opting for an on-premise ERP system or on-cloud Version.
Choose your Deployment Mode Wisely
When we compare the two modes of deployment, we are not claiming either of the two as superior or inferior. Both the deployment methods are done for SAP Business One that in itself is a self sufficient ERP system.
The aim of this comparison is just to help you with your deployment method of choice. Let’s take up each trait in detail:
- Time of Deployment
The traditional on-premise ERP systems are comparatively difficult to install than the cloud-based ERP system which are not just easier to deploy but also take much less time to bring it to the action. There are many things considered for in-premise deployment methods, like – the infrastructure of the company, hardware cost, a roadmap to strategize the entire deployment, IT support and a couple more things. However, for on-cloud deployment, everything is handled by the vendor and the entire process is carried on cloud, without hampering the regular workflow.
- IT Cost and Maintenance
On-premise ERP systems certainly need an ERP system for smooth working and updated features of the ERP. On the other hand, the updates and maintenance of cloud ERP is handled through the browser. Thus, there’s no IT and maintenance involved for the on-cloud version.
- Flexibility of Operations
While on-premise ERP systems can be handled while being present inside the office premise only, cloud-based ERP systems give the freedom to operate and run the entire business on the go anytime and anywhere.
Especially in these situations where almost every domain has been forced to run the operation from home, cloud ERP systems can help uplift the game by rendering the users the freedom to access information from their place with speed and accuracy.
So, there you go the comparison between on-premise and on-cloud version of SAP Business One ERP. No ERP is any less. Yet, we suggest going for Cloud ERP thinking about the long term usage and significance of the business automation software. Not just it is cost-effective, but it renders you an added advantage of flexibility and no cost for hardware and infrastructure maintenance.
