How can you determine if an ERP product is a “real” cloud ERP system versus a legacy system that has been adapted for the cloud?
A new research report “Clearing the ERP Clouds” by SMB group helps gives helpful tips to warn you of what they call “Faux Cloud ERP”.
According to the report, “Some ERP vendors host their legacy client-server applications in a remote environment and market that as “cloud computing.” But, these applications were never designed to be delivered and used via the Internet. They often lack virtualization, load balancing and other technologies that provide the scalability, hardware and management benefits that true cloud solutions offer, as well as a browser-based UI. This results in a significant reduction of benefits when compared to applications designed and built from the ground up to be run as cloud-based services.”
HOW TO DETERMINE IF A VENDOR IS SIMPLY HOSTING A LEGACY CLIENT-SERVER ERP APPLICATION IN THE CLOUD:
- Pricing model and cost savings
- Requirements for remote terminal technology
- Virtualization and load balancing
- Standards and Security
