About this webinar:

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications stand to benefit from the advantages of the cloud as much as any other enterprise workflow. Boosts to scalability, continuity, security, manageability, and cost benefits are amongst the much-touted gains up for grabs. However, the back-office has lagged behind other lines of business in making the move to the cloud.

This webinar, and accompanying dedicated Computing research, will reveal where businesses are in their ERP cloud migration journey, and explore what those organisations that are keeping their ERP operations on-premises may be missing out on.

By comparing the experiences and opinions of those who have already made the move to the cloud with those who have yet to do so, we'll cut through the rhetoric to the lived experiences, and get to the bottom of the question, "Should your ERP be on the cloud today?"

We'll also gauge: the extent to which the outcomes have lived up to pre-migration expectations, satisfaction levels, how to get the most out of cloud-based ERP, what kinds of organisations have the most to gain, getting easy access to the latest innovations, and ensuring the agility to adapt to business challenges and opportunities.
