Agility, Features, OPEX Pricing Model Propel Demand for Cloud ERP Systems
Cloud ERP has emerged as an agile, dynamic, flexible, cost effective, and swift-to-implement alternative to traditional legacy on-premise ERP software.

But the signs clearly point to more cloud ERP development, adoption, and growth going forward.
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications have become critical business tools by connecting, enabling, automating, integrating, and pinpointing opportunities (and problems) inside core enterprise functions and processes.

New cloud solutions can go live in as little as three months; but as with cloud CRM a decade ago, cloud ERP systems are still maturing, and as a result they have not been fully embraced by the market. But the signs clearly point to more cloud ERP development, adoption, and growth going forward.
