How Can JD Edwards Managed Services & Cloud Computing Help Lower My Total Cost of Ownership?

When implemented properly, IT outsourcing can enable business growth while reducing overall IT costs. More JD Edwards customers are realizing the cost savings associated with outsourcing IT responsibilities to a managed services provider.

With the ever-changing and increasing need for specialized IT resources, businesses of all sizes are faced with the challenge of finding new and affordable options for meeting these business demands. For JD Edwards ERP system users, IT managed services is an available and cost effective solution.

Here we will look at some of the ways that JD Edwards Managed Services can reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of your JD Edwards ERP system.

Reduced Overhead Costs

Outsourcing system management to a JD Edwards software expert allows businesses to get the most of out of their JD Edwards investment, while reducing overhead costs. Maintaining an in-house IT department can be a costly venture, especially if your business does not require specific services on a daily basis. JD Edwards managed services can provide your business with access to much needed expertise and service on-demand, but without the high costs of maintaining an in-house team.

Customized Contracts

Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, Managed Services allow your enterprise to customize IT resources to meet critical business needs and your budget.  Instead of paying for resources and services that may or may not be used, you only pay for the amount of support, monitoring, and maintenance required.

Focus on Core Initiatives

Your company’s IT department is most valuable when it focuses on strategic initiatives that are critical to the goals of your business, rather than wasted on managing day-to-day maintenance and putting out fires. JD Edwards managed services gives businesses the on-demand expertise and the services they need, when they need it, without tying up their internal IT resources on duties that are not the best use of their time.  With JD Edwards managed services, you have access to the expertise that can properly advise you on efficient management of JD Edwards technology and configuration changes.  This valuable guidance enables businesses to quickly and easily adapt to changes in your business with the proper controls in place.

Reduced IT Expenditures Through Cloud ERP Deployments

A properly built IT infrastructure requires an investment in equipment, facilities, and staff in addition to maintaining facility security, cooling, redundant systems, spare hardware, and other expenses.

Companies are also often required to make sizeable investments in new technologies on a regular basis in order to meet growing business demands and remain competitive in today’s marketplace.  Managing these systems adds another significant expense. JD Edwards Managed Services can greatly reduce or even eliminate the requirement for a large capital outlay.
