What is Cloud ERP?

Cloud ERP systems are often the backbone of successful businesses bringing their operations within different sectors into one place; an effect of this digitalization is that ERP systems need to keep up with the increasing demands of the market. Cloud-based ERP systems have emerged as a saving grace for all kinds of businesses by providing enhanced flexibility while keeping costs low.

In this race to reach increased profitability and growth, SAP for small and midsized businesses has also adopted cloud computing to maximize the benefits of implementing SAP.

Because of SAP Business One’s diverse modules, SAP Business ByDesign, and SAP S/4HANA Cloud, Public Edition, SAP solutions stand out as a lucrative tool for small to medium-sized businesses. Let’s take a look at some of the cloud ERP systems currently available to understand which functionalities are best suited to drive innovation. 

What Are Cloud ERP Solutions? 

Cloud-based ERP systems are software that offers all the features of a traditional ERP system but can be accessed via the Internet making it accessible anywhere, anytime, on any device. As opposed to an on-premise ERP system, which requires ownership of hardware such as servers and data centers, cloud-based ERP systems use a provider’s or vendor's hardware to host their software. For this reason, these systems are called Software-as-a-Service. Customers do not own the cloud ERP software—instead, they use it by paying an annual or monthly subscription. Leveraging cloud ERP can be extremely beneficial because there are no upfront hardware costs and the maintenance, security, upgrades, and storage are handled by the vendor of the platform. 

SAP applications (Business One, Business ByDesign, and S/4HANA Cloud, Public Edition) go well beyond the basic core functions of accounting and inventory, delivering a complete, robust suite covering all aspects of business management including:

  • Human Resources
  • Financials
  • Analytics
  • Supply Chain
  • Project Management
  • CRM
  • and much more.
