Software upgrades for on-premise solutions are not always straightforward. When it’s time to update your software, your IT team may have to restore your customised settings, and install a newer version of the SQL database if the current version is unsupported. This is why some companies avoid upgrading their ERP software and settle for running their business on outdated technology.
Cloud-based ERP solutions are automatically upgraded by the provider, so you’re always using the latest version. In the cloud, regular updates don’t affect your customisations and integrations. There may be periodical major platform upgrades in a cloud environment, bringing new features which will need to be assessed and integrated into your business processes.
