Frank’s thoughts on the move to Cloud ERP:

The economic and strategic benefits of cloud computing accrue to end-user organizations that completely or at least largely eliminate their on-premises IT infrastructure. Analysis by our sister IT research firm, Computer Economics, shows that cloud user companies save more than 15% in terms of their total IT spending, and the money that they do spend goes more toward innovation and less towards on-going support. The move to cloud ERP is essential if organizations are to fully realize the benefits of cloud computing.”
