If you are looking to pinpoint one of the primary strengths of SAP B1, you will most likely land on choice. When you have SAP Business One, you can choose to deploy it on-premise or on a cloud. You can also choose your own private cloud or have it managed by a cloud hosting service.
Another strength of SAP B1 is having access to solutions that can help manage your overall infrastructure. You are given a solution that can help you keep all your business operations organized and easy to access so you can make better, quicker, and more informed business decisions with real-time information and data.
So, what have you decided? Are you thinking of moving your SAP B1 to a cloud? Here is why you should.
Flexibility and Scalability
Cloud-based solutions are definitely growing in popularity, and a big reason for this is the flexibility this kind of solution can offer a business. If you are a fast-growing company, then you want a hosted solution that is flexible and scalable.
You can have the ability to increase your storage size in an instant, achieve better internet speed, and access data easily and more quickly when compared to an in-house or on-premises model.
It also allows you to scale up or down as needed and add and subtract users as required. It makes it easier to manage your business operations as well as your employees.
If you have a smaller to mid-sized business, you may not always have the money in your budget for an IT team. Managing an in-house IT team is also not an attractive task for many, either.
When you move your SAP B1 to the cloud, you can use the “as-a-service” model to allow you to access your infrastructure, systems, and support you need, when you need it without delay. It allows you to have a more adaptable approach for managing and controlling your business.
You will not have to purchase additional hardware, servers, server software, or firewalls. Instead, you will have a single monthly fee that covers everything needed to run SAP Business One.
Avoid an Outdated Infrastructure
When you choose to move your SAP B1 to the cloud, you can also effectively avoid an outdated infrastructure. There is no need to re-invest money into hardware and a new infrastructure when you can instead pay a monthly fee and take away high upfront costs and the hassle of a new infrastructure. Compare these costs to those of upgrading your current infrastructure for your on-premises solutions and the ongoing maintenance costs you will have to face as well.
Access to New Technology
The cloud can also give you access to newer and lower-cost solutions and technologies like SAP HANA, AP automation, and more. When you choose the right provider, you will also find that your cloud environment is just as secure, if not more secure, than your previous on-premises ERP implementation.
Automated Backup and Recovery Solutions
Moving your SAP B1 to the cloud means you can access automated backup and recovery solutions you might not have had previously. Your database is protected. Depending on your business’s needs, you can choose a multi or single region disaster recovery system.
You will quickly find that all cloud tools and databases are spread across many servers worldwide, so you are not at risk of a server crash that can destroy your data and applications.
Instead, you will have access to high-quality backup and recovery and cloud security solutions that are supported by a cloud backup solution. You have the peace of mind knowing that all your data is safe and secure and there when you need it.
Another critical aspect of moving your SAP B1 to the cloud is the collaboration it offers. If you are like many businesses transitioning to remote work positions, you will find that having everything easily accessible on the cloud will benefit your employees and business.
They can access the information they need to do their jobs from wherever they are and whatever device they are using.
This ensures that your business can continue working within a collaborative environment and keep everyone on the same page.
