QAD Allows Global Customers To Blend Deployment Of ERP In The Public Cloud And On Premise – An Industry-First For Manufacturing

QAD Inc. (NASDAQ:QADA) (NASDAQ:QADB), a leading provider of enterprise software and services for global manufacturers, today announced QAD Enterprise Applications solution allows global customers to blend deployment of ERP in the public cloud and on premise – an industry-first for manufacturers.

Designed exclusively for global manufacturers, QAD innovative architecture enables enterprises to implement a full-strength ERP solution via the public cloud or as a blended deployment model containing a mix of both on premise licenses and cloud users. Customers benefit from the same functionality, business processes, internationalizations and user experience across QAD Enterprise Applications regardless of the deployment model.

“As companies continue to embrace cloud applications and cloud deployment strategies, the benefits of on demand ERP systems with strong security, high performance and a common user experience continue to emerge as competitive differentiators,” said Nick Castellina, senior research associate, Enterprise Applications, Aberdeen Group. “The capability to run ERP on premise at company headquarters, for example, with on demand ERP deployed in other locations, offers manufacturers a pragmatic approach.”

A Gradual Pragmatic Approach to Running ERP in the Cloud

Global manufacturing companies that choose to migrate to the cloud can rarely move existing implementations overnight. QAD blended deployment allows customers to gradually migrate ERP solutions to the cloud. “Deployment flexibility is essential,” said Gordon Fleming, QAD chief marketing officer. “Global manufacturing customers with existing QAD Enterprise Applications are interested in the benefits of the public cloud platform, but want to take a gradual, pragmatic approach to getting there.”

QAD Enterprise Applications On Demand provides the same functionality and user experience as QAD Enterprise Applications On Premise software. As software-as-a-service (SaaS), QAD On Demand benefits customers with automatic upgrades and rapid implementation, per-user pricing and global accessibility. IT departments globally are recognizing the benefits of having QAD manage application support, server hardware, systems administration, database administration, upgrade planning, first-line user support, disaster recovery, usage and analysis reporting.

QAD delivers both deployment independence and deployment portability. QAD On Demand, QAD On Premise and QAD blended deployment options deliver the functionality that global manufacturing companies require to become more effective enterprises.
