To discover how cloud-based ERP systems support and accelerate growing organizations, NetSuite’s Vishrut Parikh and Anand Misra engaged senior IT executives in discussions on the topic. These executives shared case studies of why they switched from on-premise to cloud-based systems, how the implementation process occurred, benefits they have experienced, and lessons learned.
A prevailing theme is that the marketplace is changing faster than ever and competitive pressures are greater than ever. To keep pace in this dynamic environment and to lay the foundation for growth, firms are realizing that their historical processes and on-premise systems are not adequate. They need to modernize their IT infrastructure to provide the visibility and scalability for growth.
These discussions underscored how cloud-based ERP systems enable businesses to respond to market dynamics through rapid scalability, access for distributed workforces, and real-time visibility into the organization from anywhere. They provide a full view of the customer, which equips employees at all levels with real-time information to support intelligent decision making. Since cloud infrastructures flex with growth, the IT team is freed from the complex integrations and upgrades that can prevent businesses from outrunning the competition.
