The Post Pandemic world has high market volatility as ways of doing businesses have been disrupted for good across domains and industries. Businesses around the world have started adapting new market trends to match the rapidly changing customer demands and regulatory practices.

As the long process of recovery continues, Industry leaders keep striving to optimize their business processes end-to-end from manufacturing, accounting and finance, inventory management to human resources, sales and marketing.

That’s why visionary business leaders are making sure that they seize the opportunity for growth while staging one step ahead of the constantly changing environment. Many have now tapped into the tremendous potential of Cloud Computing when it comes to efficient business management.

Changing business environments need Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning Solutions to stay agile and adopt rapid market changes.

Let’s start with the basics first.

What is the Cloud?


Each technology solution needs a centralized hardware to stay (hosted). Simply put, this hardware is often the server that traditionally used to be where you worked, probably in the office basement or in the server room. However, thanks to the advancement of Internet, powerful processors and technology that the need to achieve faster speeds when working on computers at work, arose.

This gave rise to the concept of the cloud. Broadly speaking, the Cloud is a combination of software and services that run on the Internet on a server that’s far away from you but still just as good, if not better – instead of locally on your computer or your office server.

When you say you’re using a Cloud Software, it simply means, the software you are currently using is hosted on a server far away from where you work. In other words, it is not currently hosted on premise (literally on the premise where all the work is happening.) It is being hosted on the cloud on a server that is being maintained and managed by someone other than your company’s IT team.

What is Cloud ERP Software?


A Cloud ERP software is nothing but an end-to-end business planning and management solution which is hosted on a Public or Private Cloud infrastructure. It literally refers to an ERP solution hosted on the Cloud.

Cloud ERP solutions are built to deliver a unified, up-to-date view of business data without the hassles of maintaining a full-fledged IT team.

Who takes care of the Cloud Infrastructure?


Your technology solution partners or SAP Implementation Partners like VC ERP Consulting take responsibility for hosting, deploying and managing not only your Cloud infrastructure but maintain your SAP ERP on Cloud which results in
  • Lower Total Cost of Operations
  • Improved capital budgeting
  • Reduced IT dependency
SAP is the pioneer in the field of Enterprise Resource Planning that has evolved to become available not only on-premise but as a software-as-a-solution that runs on a vendor’s cloud platform.

Cloud ERP Software by SAP is designed to deliver speed, flexibility and intelligence making it an essential ingredient for success in this age of digital transformation.

Why an ERP hosted on the Cloud?


For more than three decades, ERP Systems have delivered and added value to businesses helping them boost productivity and gain insights. After COVID-19, market volatility has increased and the world has changed.

ERP Solutions hosted on the Cloud are designed to transform your business, help your business stay competitive and provide powerful operational capabilities. SAP ERP Solutions designed for the cloud shift the IT burden and infrastructure hassles from your business to your experienced implementation partner.
