The Benefits of Moving your ERP to the Cloud
Companies that have moved their JD Edwards (JDE) ERP to the cloud have positioned themselves for easy migration with few, if any, headaches.
JD Edwards ERP has been designed for flexible, multiplatform operation so it doesn’t have to be uprooted from dedicated software-hardware pairing.
This doesn’t mean that changing the company’s key information systems and moving erp to the cloud is an easy decision. Cloud-based computing can seem like a risky or trendy alternative. Management may have concerns about not having control over the hardware and the personnel who manage day-to-day IT operations.
Managed IT services providers know that companies which aren’t already using the cloud have yet another new computing concept to absorb. Like moving from mainframes to server-based architectures, migration to the cloud is a matter of becoming informed and building confidence, as well as realizing the considerable advantages involved.
Enterprise Class Performance in the Cloud
There are good reasons why cloud-based JD Edwards ERP is so popular. Companies are saving money in many areas of IT, gaining increased functionality and stability in their operations, and letting seasoned, experienced experts manage their systems. This means that a JD Edwards hosting customer has all of the benefits of an in-house JD Edwards operation and more, but gives up the headaches of being in the business of IT operations as well as their main business.
Companies still control their ERP implementation in the cloud, they are just buying computing power as they would from a utility, instead of owning the “utility” themselves. They give up the capital expenses, much of the consulting costs (around 40 percent) and lower their personnel costs (25 percent). Economies of scale and more efficient, standardized operations at cloud hosting facilities are passed along to customers.
Financially, this means lease/purchase decisions, long-term planning for hardware, and hiring and training specialists aren’t necessary to maintain the systems. Application flexibility is increased by working with cloud and managed services solutions. Customization is not only possible, but opens new possibilities when working with JD Edwards ERP specialists at Syntax, with extensive custom implementation experience.

Physical, in-house computing brings with it many headaches such as business continuity planning (which often involves an off-site server system anyway), support systems such as cooling, electrical, special server rooms and much more. Capacity planning for many companies is a challenge as well. Cloud-based ERP is provided as a service run by experts, and has capacity to meet growing and changing business needs responsively.
