Five Benefits of a Cloud ERP Solution

Kristin Deal 
Cloud computing has the potential to transform business processes. 

Cloud computing refers to both the applications delivered as services over the Internet and the hardware and systems software in the data centers that provide those services

In other words, companies can store their own software and information in a data center and then access it through the internet. These data centers are massive, consist of thousands of servers, and are located all over the country. Here are five reasons why using a cloud network can assist a company.

1. Data can be accessed from anywhere

If a company's data is stored on the cloud, it can be accessed from anywhere in the world that has an internet connection. This can help a company with globalization because they are no longer restricted by the physical location of their data. They do not have to worry about having access to a computer that is connected to a server, because they can simply use the internet to connect to a data center.

2. Less hardware

If a company uses the cloud to store their data, they do not have to purchase their own servers. Not only do they not have to worry about the physical storage of the servers, not having to buy their own hardware will significantly reduce costs for a company. The cost of new servers greatly exceeds the cost of storing data on the cloud. Also, the less hardware a company has, the fewer IT personnel are needed to maintain it.

3. No wasted storage

If a company has to buy a new server because all of the old ones are full, but only has a little bit of information to put on the new server, there will be a surplus of memory storage. They will be paying a lot for storage space that is not being used. If the company stores their data on the cloud, they are only charged for the space they are using. The cloud is like a utility in that sense; the company pays monthly based on how much storage space it uses.

4. No need to install software

If software applications are stored on the cloud, the company simply has to pay for a subscription to the application. This concept is known as software as a service, or SaaS. This means that the company does not have to own the software, it just pays to use the service. This will save the company money because it no longer has to pay an IT person to install software; it can focus on more important matters.

5. Resources can be used for innovation

If a company does not need to maintain and update servers and does not need to have software installed on all of its computers, it can reduce the number of IT employees it has. Since the company will then have excess funds, it can use that money to pay employees to research and come up with more innovative ideas. It can use the money to improve its product, which will benefit the company in the long run.

Overall, storing and accessing data and software on the cloud is very beneficial to a company. They can reduce their costs by eliminating IT salaries and not purchasing as much hardware. Easy access to the cloud through the internet allows company employees to access information anywhere. In the near future, it is very likely that many companies will see the benefits of using the cloud and will change to that system.
