Lack of an application integration strategy and related skills are the Achilles’ heel of cloud ERP projects, says mega-analyst Gartner.
Companies moving from on-premises systems into cloud mistakenly assume the vendors peddling cloud will take care of application integration, says Gartner. When – ‘inevitably’ – they don't, customers are the ones left scrambling.
Enprise’s strategy is to provide a full range of cloud, on-premise and cloud hosted options, and help each customer decide what best suits their business, says Enprise Group CEO Elliot Cooper.
“We are noticing a definite trend towards cloud hosting. More customers are choosing to have their applications hosted in the Enprise cloud, using it as a way to reap the benefits of cloud while avoiding the pitfalls,” he says.
“MYOB Advanced has a lot of integration built in, so it’s a pure cloud product that avoids the pitfalls outlined by Gartner. Whatever customers choose, we will take responsibility for integration and provide ‘gold standard’ ongoing support. Choosing the right partner is always the best way to ensure project success.”
