4. No disruption even after an update
On-premises SAP needs to be updated every now and then to ensure that it’s in line with the evolving business needs. However, these updates could cost more than once. The first is that you need to pay for updates. In addition, you need to engage experts to fix the bugs and issues. With cloud ERP the upgrade costs are included in the cost of subscription.
5. Cut security, compliance, and other costs
Businesses deal with sensitive customer information. Data leaks could be a cause for lawsuits and reputation damage. So, if they are using an in-house ERP database and application layers, they need to protect the server from both physical and cyber-attacks.
From secured buildings that are dedicated to security CCTVs, security staff, and other security measures to firewalls and antivirus – security of data is an ongoing cost. For instance, a basic firewall could cost a company $450-$2500. There’s also the fee for subscriptions from $50 to $6000.
Cloud ERP allows you’ll be able to avoid security cost for data to a great extent. Of course, it is your responsibility to ensure that your part of the network safe and ensure that access control is in place. Beyond that making sure that your database and server safe is the responsibility of the SAP partners such as Embee Software.
