Why ERP Listed in this Database don't have a 'CLOUD' Designation

Cloud ERP is generally described by the following attributes:

  1. ERP hosted by some entity (could be the user)
  2. ERP maintenance and upgrades managed by another entity
  3. Remotely accessed by users (browser and other techniques)
  4. Pay as you go model (subscription).

Once educated, buyers become aware of the pros and cons of details within these attributes and their options. Based on a buyer's point of view on 'Cloud ERP' many of the Cloud offerings will not be suitable, including many of the pure-play ERP Cloud offerings. Conversely some ERP will meet a particular buyer's 'Cloud ERP' objectives—even thought the ERP may normally be used on-premise. Therefore a 'Cloud' or 'not Cloud' designation would simply be misleading.

This is an area of significant misinformation and hype as detailed in our white paper on the topic.
