The Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is business process management software: that allows an organization to use a system of integrated applications to manage the business efficiently. All aspects of business including “Sell” “Deliver” and “Collect” are seamlessly integrated. Everyone works from the same enterprise data which is updated instantly. Advanced reporting functionality allows employees to receive actionable information on an “alert” basis.
What is somewhat new is the idea of making the ERP “mobile” enabled? The contemplation of mobilized ERP is a challenging idea. Idea is to provide employees with important role based information on their individual mobile devices. This allows them to make important decisions in a timely manner. This in turn has direct impact on employee productivity, allowing businesses to achieve their success metrics, readily.
What is Cloud-based ERP System and how it differs from On-Premise ERP System?
Cloud-based Enterprise Resource Planning software: Is hosted in a platform over the Internet. The use of the term “Cloud” includes a broad set of applications and software deployment models, namely Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Software as a service (SaaS) is a software delivery model in which software and associated data are centrally hosted on the cloud by independent software vendors or application service providers on the cloud. With SaaS, there is no need for physical hardware support on the part of the business owner. Therefore, it is cost effective and requires minimal maintenance support.
The Cloud is a host site where the ERP applications and data are stored and the computing takes place. Even though applications delivered through SaaS look and perform like desktop applications, the computing is performed off-premise and is referred to as Internet-based computing.
On-premise ERP System:
Most people are familiar with traditional ERP systems that have been implemented in the distribution environment for the last 25-plus years. These are on-premise systems that distributors use to run their businesses, such as sales, order entry, inventory control, purchasing, accounting, warehousing and shipping and subsequent customer service. Linked together within a network, the traditional on-premise systems allow users throughout the organization to effectively manage their piece of the business via hardware and software that is under complete control and responsibility of the provider.
What is Cloud- based mobile ERP System?
Cloud-based mobile ERP system architecture is hosted by SaaS, to support mobility and provides access to any mobile devices. In this architecture the Business Application Layer and Presentation Layer are designed differently to meet mobile requirements. When we say SaaS mobile ERP it has a slight difference in platform from desktop ERP. Business Application layer and Presentation layer is designed differently to meet.
The advances in mobile industry also brought an idea to put the ERP system into to next level. Cloud based ERP benefits customers by providing application scalability and reduced hardware costs. In addition, Cloud computing technology made it easier to deliver ERP software as a service (SaaS) for customers who want to acquire cloud ERP and not have to manage hardware, software, and upgrades
