As the number of Software as a Service (SaaS) and cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions increases, the notion that the main benefit of a cloud solution is lowered costs and lessened impact on IT (due to relying on the resources of the ERP vendor rather than internal resources) has come to the forefront. While it is true that Aberdeen’s SaaS and Cloud ERP Trends and Observations: Is Cloud ERP Right for You? found that organizations with SaaS ERP stayed within their previously defined budget on their ERP solution in comparison to 12% over budget for those with an on-premise solution, and that organizations with SaaS ERP achieved ROI within 24 months in comparison to 31 months for on-premise users, cost savings are certainly not the only reasons that organizations may consider a SaaS ERP solution. For example, Aberdeen’s SaaS and Cloud ERP Observations: Enabling Collaboration in the Midmarket uncovered greater decreases in time to decision, decreases in cycle times of key business processes, improvements in complete and on-time shipments, and increases in profit margins for midmarket organizations with SaaS ERP in comparison to mid-market organizations with on-premise ERP. Truly, there is more to the cloud than just lower costs. This report, featuring Aberdeen data as well as four extensive success stories featuring SaaS ERP users, will outline some of the less-publicized benefits of a cloud ERP solution.
