  • ERP’s Cloudy Future – Migrating to the cloud enables companies of all sizes to evolve their IT infrastructure.
  • Hybrid Cloud – Have the best of both worlds with on-premise applications AND cloud appications integrated to your system.
  • Better ERP Reporting – Improved reporting, facilitated by analytics and tighter integration is a current trend in ERP.
  • Fighting ERP Tradition – Companies hesitant of change want something that can help them solve their problems with simple solutions.
  • SMB ERP Adoption – The move to the cloud has led to greater SMB adoption of ERP.
  • ERP Platform Approach – There is a move toward businesses making a strategic platform choice first, and then working with individual departments to choose applications that fit the overall platform strategy.
