IT departments have the task of ensuring that data processing runs smoothly so that the specialist departments can work in their respective systems with as little disruption as possible. With the rapidly progressing modernization of hardware and software, the task for CIOs to keep an overview with just a few employees and to ensure the security and availability of the IT landscape at all times is becoming increasingly difficult. In many cases, the solution to the problems is a move to a cloud ERP system .

A cloud ERP system is an ERP that maps the company’s core processes and is hosted on a cloud provider’s platform and offered as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Unlike traditional on-premise ERP systems where the software is installed and operated on internal servers, the software is not owned by the customers but is rented on an annual or monthly basis. Users can access the system via the Internet

What are the advantages of cloud ERP software?

There are a variety of reasons why companies choose to use an ERP system in the cloud:

Scalability and flexibility

Cloud ERP systems offer the possibility of scaling resources as needed. Organizations can quickly add or remove additional features, modules, or users to meet changing needs.

cost savings

Compared to traditional on-premise ERP systems, cloud ERP eliminates the cost of purchasing, installing, and maintaining hardware and infrastructure. Organizations typically pay a subscription or usage-based fee, resulting in a reduction in total cost of ownership. Expenses for internal and external IT service providers and IT security are reduced. Implementation projects in the cloud are significantly less complex than with on-premise systems.

flexibility and accessibility

A cloud ERP enables easy and secure access to company data and functions. Employees can work from any location and also access real-time information via mobile devices, which improves collaboration with other departments or locations as well as efficiency.

integration and connectivity

Cloud ERP systems typically offer built-in interfaces and APIs that allow them to be seamlessly integrated with other enterprise applications and systems. This promotes data exchange and efficiency in various business processes.


Reputable cloud ERP providers invest in highly secure infrastructures and implement advanced security measures. These include mirrored data centers, data encryption, access controls and regular security audits. The availability of the data is contractually regulated by SLAs.

Automatic updates and maintenance

The cloud ERP provider is responsible for updates, patches and maintenance work. This eliminates the burden on internal IT teams who would have to take care of these tasks. The company can concentrate on core competencies.

Up-to-dateness and innovation

Cloud ERP providers are able to quickly adopt new technologies and innovations. Regular updates or releases ensure that the software is always up to date. Businesses can take advantage of new features, industry-specific solutions, and upgrades to stay competitive.

In summary, a cloud ERP offers companies a wide range of benefits, including flexibility, cost savings, improved accessibility, automatic updates, increased security, seamless integration and access to the latest innovations. This makes it an attractive solution for companies of all sizes and industries.
