Cloud-computing is cost effective
Cloud-computing expansion, forecasted by Gartner’s analysts, sits on the substantial savings which companies benefit by using it.
For example, using Acumatica on the cloud includes all the necessary software and hardware. Essentially, this SaaS deployment model includes Acumatica Cloud-based ERP, the database management software, the operating system, the servers, the memory, the hard drives and the automated back-up tasks using the Cloud-based Microsoft Azure platform.
Because of this, no IT resources are required for the initial implementation; neither do you need it when a software or hardware update is required. All required hardware and software upgrades and installs are included.
Furthermore, using Acumatica Cloud-based ERP’s rich functionalities, there is no per-user fees; which allows for a faster return on investment for this Cloud-based solution.
Cloud-computing concept and stakes
The following article (French original version) on Echos.fr, named “Les promesses du Cloud computing” clearly demonstrates the Cloud-computing concept as well as its stakes.
Cloud-computing bounds pushed asides by Acumatica Cloud-based ERP
Where 3 limits usually apply to Cloud-computing technologies, these do not apply to Acumatica Web-based ERP. Here’s why:
- Acumatica Web ERP insures a bank-level security
Contrary to other Cloud-based solutions, Microsoft Azure platform on which Acumatica is sitting as well as Acumatica’s own conception guarantee bank-level security. This security level is both physical and logical.
- With Acumatica Web ERP, you keep control.
Most suppliers of Cloud-computing solutions such as Netsuite give you no choice but to do business with them to have access to your database. Furthermore, these suppliers often only allow one deployment model.
In Acumatica Web ERP’s case, you can either deploy the software on your own servers or use it on the cloud where the entire needed infrastructure is included. You can even switch from one mode to the other whenever you feel the need.
