Lessons Learned - Getting your head in the Cloud while keeping your feet on the ground

[fa icon="calendar"] April 1, 2019 / by Beth Mayhew, Highstreet

Most Oracle application users are not questioning why they should move to the cloud, but rather when and how.

If you’re looking to modernize your business with the hopes of increased IT agility, ease of use for the end user, and the ability to make quick, informed decisions, you’re faced with several options – move to a cloud ERP, continue to invest in on-premise ERP solutions, or utilize a hybrid model to gain the benefits of both.

There are generally two types of Cloud ERP customers: first-time ERP buyers and ERP replacement buyers, each with different criteria for selecting an ERP system. If you’re a first time ERP buyer, chances are your organization is looking for speed, agility, and scalability. However, if you are a current PeopleSoft customer who is considering upgrading to version 9.2 or moving to the Cloud, functionality and stability are likely the most important features for your organization.
