Many business owners may think that today’s ERP systems are relatively new. What is new about enterprise resource planning software is the increase in business processing capabilities and the offering of SaaS options, such as found in cloud ERP.
Indeed, the ERP platform was introduced in that land-before-time era of the 1980’s and early ‘90s. Then, the technology relied on PIC and the then-stalwart DOS platform.
Cluttered atop these systems were customized applications for a zillion vertical industry sectors, from manufacturing, shipping and distribution, to name just a few.
In time, this over-customization of a business’s ERP software resulted in few options: discard completely the legacy system and start over learning a new platform.
Fortunately, the Microsoft Dynamics software line offers scalable solutions for business looking to ‘grow into’ their ERP/CRM system. In such cases, business do not have to choose between an on-premise, or cloud, solution. Dynamics GP 2015, for example, offers both deployments, allowing business to migrate select files and applications to a cloud-hosting service while keeping critical, core systems on-premise.
According to a Gartner report on Forbes, today’s cloud ERP systems mean can bring better operational efficiencies throughout the workplace as well as an improved ROI than old systems.
“Impatient for results and systems that can deliver them, the high growth areas of the ERP market are being driven by companies who see cloud-based systems as more agile and responsive to their changing business model needs. Legacy systems designed for business models long gone yet still on maintenance are being extended today with cloud-based systems capable to keeping pace with an entirely new level of performance companies need to survive and grow.”
