Companies now need to evolve quickly, which means being able to move some or all business operations to an existing or new ERP instance quickly and inexpensively, anywhere in the world. Small companies are increasingly likely to become multi-national as emerging markets take on larger roles in revenue growth. Larger companies continue to optimize and innovate through organic development, as well as through mergers and acquisitions.
In this increasingly competitive environment, the ERP deployment choice is a significant advantage for companies seeking an agile response to constantly changing and often-volatile market conditions. In particular, cloud-based ERP systems are increasingly seen as an effective means for companies to economically deploy new ERP or expand IT operations as their commercial reach broadens globally.
