Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is a tool for managing information by the automation and integration of core business processes, thereby streamlining business processes & information, increasing efficiency & providing a platform for improved collaboration across the entire organization.

An ERP system integrates core business functions such as accounting, order management, inventory, customer relationship management (CRM), etc, providing improved visibility, intelligence, analytics & efficiency across the organization.

A centralized database that supports multiple functions is a key feature of ERP. This ensures different business units – let’s say sales & distribution, for example, can rely on the same information that is updated in real-time, breaking down silos across the organization

ERP can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud, or a hybrid, depending on requirements.

Due to the high financial & human capital expenses of maintaining on-premise solutions, dynamic companies sway towards cloud based solutions for their ability to offer cost savings, flexibility, scalability, security, and speed that growing companies will find very appealing.

SaaS

SaaS, or Software-as-a-service, is one of the 3 main categories of cloud computing. It is a 3rd party application available over the internet with no physical connection to any one device. SaaS can be cost-effective as it eliminates costs such as hardware, maintenance, or licensing. Saas offerings generally operate on a pay-as-you-go model, offering businesses flexibility.

Advantages of SaaS include: High scalability, Automatica updates, & High accessibility since users can access SaaS content from any internet-connected device

SaaS & the traditional on-premise models have 2 key differences:

  • Because SaaS is cloud-based, SaaS deployments don’t require extensive hardware. This enables organizations to reallocate resources that would’ve otherwise gone to employing an IT maintenance team if the software was hosted inhouse
  • SaaS systems are typically paid within a subscription model, whereas on-premise software is usually purchased through a perpetual license, paid upfront.
