A recent Gartner survey found that 47% of respondents will be moving their ERP to the cloud in the next 5 years with 26% moving in the next 3 years. With that said, what are the benefits of moving JD Edwards to the cloud and how can it impact your business?

Here are some of the top reasons that our clients have moved their JD Edwards system to the cloud:

1. Ability to scale quickly to changes in the business environment – market, competition, demand, etc.

2. Provides a predictable cost model – typically a fixed fee over a contracted period of time.

3. Reduces costs for IT staffing, infrastructure, maintenance, upgrades/updates, system management, etc.

4. Pay for what you consume with access to what you need.

5. Ease and speed of implementation.

6. Reduces IT complexity.

7. Improves system availability, redundancy and disaster recovery.

8. Expert 24/7 resources at your disposal including technical and functional resources.

9. Provides application, operating system, database, security administration with proactive monitoring.

10. Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) over an on premise solution.
