Control You Can Count On – SAAS or Cloud?


Email | Print

In the study ‘The Pros and Cons of SAAS ERP’, Mint Jutras discusses the terminology confusion behind the question, ‘Is it “SAAS” or is it “CLOUD”?’. For many, “SAAS” and “Cloud” mean the same thing. However, there are some important differences but let’s clarify the two up front:

  • “Cloud” refers to using a network hosted on the Internet to store data, manage data and process data, rather than an on premise server or a personal computer.  You purchase the software license and install on your computer but the access is through the internet
  • “SAAS” refers to Software-As-A-Service and means exactly what it stands for.  It is a model in which an organization outsources the equipment used to support operations, including storage, hardware, servers and networking components.  The service provider owns the equipment and is responsible for housing, running and maintaining it.  The client pays on a per-use basis.  Specifically, for Dynamics ERP SAAS, the Dynamics ERP license is provided to the client as part of the monthly fee

Although “all SAAS is cloud computing but not all cloud computing is SAAS”, Mint Jutras explains that businesses can control and manage growth with the help of Cloud ERP.

Misconceptions surrounding SAAS software still exist BUT SAAS solutions have tremendous business potential.  Greater control of cost, maintenance, deployment and more can be permitted by Cloud ERP software giving businesses responsive and profitable flexibility.

In Mint Jutras’s annual ERP Solution Studies, industry experts found that adopters of SAAS solutions like Acumatica Cloud ERP software recounted having a number of improvements in areas like Operations and Finance with some major TCO savings.

All these findings and more are detailed in Mint Jutras FREE REPORT, ‘The Pros and Cons of SAAS ERP’.
