Key market trends

Cloud deployments to witness the strongest growth in the market

  • Cloud-based ERP solutions are comparatively cheaper and benefit both SMEs and large enterprises. Cloud-based ERP software is installed on the vendor’s remote servers instead of corporate hardware. Some of the solutions are provided on a service basis and hence are also referred to as ERP SaaS solutions. SaaS ERPs integrate a multi-tenant software architecture that allows multiple customers to use the same vendor-hosted software platform. Some of the benefits include faster deployment, lower upfront costs for software implementation, easy customization of single-tenant SaaS applications, easy setup and maintenance process, automatic data backup and disaster recovery. , and finally, easy integration and migration.

  • Cloud ERPs are generally classified as single-tenant and multi-tenant. In the first case, the solution is considered as a separate instance of ERP, used by a single company that does not have a shared server space. Configuration gives customers more control over the software and leaves more room for customization. In the case of multi-tenant solutions, a number of organizations use the same software platform and hardware where the vendor manages all updates and upgrades the ERP solutions to the latest versions which automatically grant access to customers with the latest versions. As a result, it reduces the burden on internal IT teams to ensure that customers always have access to the most up-to-date and secure ERPs.
