This new NetSuite webinar is aimed at enterprises seeking to standardize ERP across their divisions and subsidiaries without incurring the onerous time and substantial costs associated with deploying or expanding traditional on-premise systems. The webinar will cover all aspects of two-tier ERP, and explain how enterprises can leverage cloud ERP as a critical part of their operational strategy, including best practices, first-hand experience, tactics, deployment strategies, and more.
"Enterprises are struggling with the result of years of fragmented ERP investments throughout their business structures - but rationalizing them, using traditional ERP approaches is prohibitive. It is vital that enterprises now learn how to leverage strategies such as two-tier and hub-and-spoke models, together with cutting edge technologies such as cloud ERP," said Ray Wang. "These new solutions and strategies can enable enterprises to grow more efficiently and cost effectively, ensure subsidiary flexibility, while accelerating financial consolidation and improve overall visibility."
The adoption of cloud computing in the enterprise is rapidly approaching a tipping point as more and more companies seek alternatives to costly and rigid on-premise systems. Research conducted by leading industry analyst firm IDC shows the market for cloud technology and services set to more than double by 2014, with more than 40 percent of this growth the result of cloud adoption by companies with more than 1,000 employees. This growth trajectory is being driven largely by the deficiencies of legacy, on-premise business systems, which many analysts believe have become too costly and complex to support the agile business processes required to compete in a dynamic and turbulent world economy. In contrast, the inherent flexibility and low cost of cloud ERP systems makes them an ideal solution to complement an existing corporate ERP investment while enabling the kind of dynamic business process change that is standard operating procedure for today's complex and global enterprise.
