Looking to Achieve Digital Transformation? Look to the Cloud
Guest Post by Ultra Consultants
As many industry analysts have rightly noted, digital transformation is neither solely about “digital” nor “transformation.”
In the work Ultra Consultants does as independent enterprise technology advisors, we see digital transformation as more than ERP selection. It takes into considering the full activities needed to align investments in technology, business models and processes to drive value for customers and employees to more effectively compete in an ever-changing digital economy.
The journey of enterprise software technology selection and implementation is one that should be focused not only on technology but also on improved business outcomes.
What's the Role of Cloud ERP?
If there ever was a technology delivery model that enabled the mantra of “doing more with less,” cloud ERP is it. The reasons are simple, and relate to business process improvements:
- To save the enterprise money
- To concurrently reduce risk
- To increase productivity potential and values realization from the ERP and associated enterprise applications.
Those ERP project teams that have turned to the Cloud model are succeeding. The high percentage of mid-market executives that have explored or implemented cloud solutions validates the strength of this statement.
Typically, the companies we team with look to the Cloud model to achieve strategic business process improvements as related to cost, risk reduction and improved productivity.
No matter the size organization, and given the competitive pressures faced by today’s manufacturing and distribution sector, the most compelling business driver is clearly related to reducing cost and achieving ROI via the Cloud model.
Cost considerations commonly involve looking to reduce support costs for business applications, upgrades and database systems; middleware and other technologies.
Companies seek a cost benefit by reducing the need for disruptive backups and maintenance of servers, storage, firewall, and other hardware.
