With the expansion of cloud computing and SaaS applications, IT leaders are increasingly turning to ERP software delivered through hosted platforms. According to this article, “Many of the fears that had kept IT leaders and CIOs at bay when it came to SaaS ERP products are being steadily eliminated.” The article also states that the market is still saturated with on-premises software, but that this is expected to change over the course of a few years.
With “big time” software companies such as Microsoft focusing a lot of time and budget on SaaS deployments, it’s already become a more safe and secure environment in which to put critical business data. The fears that were once felt are being diminished and this is helping the growth of SaaS and cloud computing. There are also more success stories out there that CIO’s can turn to when making the case to switch their deployment preference. More and more companies are successfully deploying online and reaping the benefits. These benefits of course include, faster time to deployment, limited upfront costs, and anytime/anywhere access to business information.
So in this case, following the IT leaders may really benefit your business more than you realize. There are of course, a few key questions you need to ask yourself as SaaS is not for everyone. First question is “Do the above benefits really speak to you?” If so, then it’s worth taking a closer look.
