Why Read This Report

Many application delivery leaders are in the process of reassessing their existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementations, which may be more than a decade old, inflexible to the changing needs of their businesses, and highly expensive to maintain. One key question facing application delivery leaders is whether or not to continue to invest solely in on-premises ERP or to complement (or even fully replace) the current software with a different deployment option — software-as-a-service (SaaS) ERP. This report examines this emerging SaaS ERP market, which already has several established SaaS-only players. The market continues to expand as traditional ERP players offer SaaS products and newer entrants emerge. The document highlights many of today's SaaS ERP vendors, describes customers' experiences with the technology, and identifies a number of SaaS ERP business scenarios.
