SAP Business One software is designed for small and medium-sized businesses. It is an ERP solution that aims at automating key business functions in the financial, operations, and human resources sectors of the company.
The software integrates the working business functions in those sectors for the entire company. Because of that, it becomes easier to handle financial management, purchasing, sales, distribution, customer service, inventory management, products, project management, and field service.
On-Cloud vs. On-Premise Software
The biggest difference between SAP Business One on the cloud vs. on premises is where they are located. On-premise software is typically locally installed on the computers and servers your business uses. Cloud software, on the other hand, is hosted on a vendor’s server and can be easily accessed through a web browser.
When deciding between the two, you need to consider other factors, including software ownership, the cost of that ownership, updates to the software you are using, and additional services you will need, such as support.
The Advantages Of The Cloud
When you choose to use SAP Business One on the cloud, you will find many advantages, such as the following:
Easy And Quick Access
With the cloud, you can access your applications at any time and from anywhere through a web browser on any device you prefer.
It is also a more cost-effective option because the cloud requires no upfront costs. Instead, you are paying for a service that already includes maintenance and support. You don’t need to have your own in-house IT team if something goes wrong. This means the costs are more predictable, and you will still have access to software licenses, upgrades, and support.
Many data centers use higher-level security measures. With those in place, your data is well protected in the cloud and is a lot safer there than if the information were being stored on a server somewhere on the premises.
Since cloud-based software is used over the internet, you don’t have to wait for the installation of an on-premises physical server and computer. You can get started with the cloud right away with no downtime or delay.
