Cloud ERP will meet the needs of “What the World Wants in a Next-Generation ERP” study by Epicore.
Gartner’s “Adoption of Cloud ERP Survey” produced earlier this year advised CIOs and application leaders to “consider cloud ERP as a potential replacement for aging core ERP systems that are out of support of running on an old technology platforms”.
Since then, ERP cloud has been accelerating faster than industry predictions. It’s easy to see why! The majority of organizations utilizing ERP systems rate them as “basic”, according to a newly released survey by ERP vendor Epicor, citing “greater responsiveness and access to information” as top ERP needs, both of which can be found in a cloud based ERP.
On a cloud based ERP, users experience increased efficiency, enhanced performance, scalability, and ease of deployment. In terms of easier, simpler, accessibility, 48% of respondents surveyed “want easier access to information”.
Demand for mobilizing ERP systems are also on the rise, with 43% wanting access on smartphones, and 38% via iPad or tablet.
A mere 20% of businesses desire to continue to invest in legacy on premise systems versus 64% seeking a mix and match of on-premise and ERP in the cloud solutions.
