Eval-Source has developed a guide to clear up some misconceptions and clarify certain aspects companies should be aware of when purchasing an ERP cloud or Software-as-a-Service solution. The Eval-Source Cloud/SaaS Buyer's Guide examines such factors as key vendors identification, vendor descriptions and target markets, the cloud software market landscape, cloud computing and SaaS benefits, important market trends that could impact software-buying decisions, security, total cost of ownership, functionality, and definitions. The information presented in the guide provides organizations with a detailed summary of the most accurate information possible to help them make a well-educated software-buying decision.
Cloud computing and software as a service have become accepted ways to provision software, yet much confusion still exists about these methods of software deployment and their actual meanings. Organizations are ready to commit to utilizing the cloud but are unsure of where to start and what options are available. Now that cloud has become mainstream technology, organizations are faced with the increasingly complex task of calculating a true total cost of ownership and the return on investment that a cloud solution can bring.
Cloud computing and SaaS are evolving so quickly that certain SaaS solutions are more readily available than ever before. It was not that long ago that certain applications were not available as SaaS or cloud options at all. Traditional on-premise vendors have embraced the shift towards the cloud and are offering complete enterprise resource planning product suites. ERP vendors now offer a diverse range of options to accommodate the main types of ERP classifications, such as process, discrete, mixed mode, and engineered-to-order. The increasing number of vendors offering ERP as a cloud/SaaS solution enables organizations to better align their business needs with the correct software and IT that supports their specific requirements.
