SAP Business One on the cloud provides small businesses with the economy of scale they need to fulfil market demand and improve business results. There will be no need for dedicated personnel to manage the system and servers, allowing you to save money and time.
Let us now look at the other advantages of running SAP Business One Cloud through Ingold Solutions.
Increased Usability: You may save your data over a network and then access it using a web-based browser or mobile app, allowing you to access your ERP system from anywhere in the world at any time.
Manageability: Since your systems are stored on faraway servers, they are managed by a Cloud provider.
Cost: Apart from dramatically low infrastructure operations and maintenance costs, the costs are also predictable for your organisation in terms of monthly fees.
Security: Because your company data is hosted in a secure facility, it is safe at the Cloud hosting centre, which is managed by security experts.
Furthermore, it is simple to integrate upcoming technology advancements such as AI, IoT, and Business Intelligence (BI) into cloud-based infrastructure.
Moving the SAP Business One solution to the cloud can provide some challenges. Here are some of the primary constraints you may face while migrating an existing ERP solution to the Cloud.
Shortcomings to Address When Migrating to the Cloud
A fast and continuous Internet connection is a must for Cloud-based solutions and apps. If your firm does not have fast and dependable Internet access, it is best not to shift to the Cloud. There are still numerous locations in the UK that do not have an uninterrupted connection, thus it is best to check your local statistics.
You must pay a fee to use Cloud-based services on a monthly basis. You can compare that with the existing costs of managing on-premise infrastructure.
If your IT infrastructure has recently been updated, it is best to wait sometime before covering the on-premise infrastructure investment. As a result, it is probably advisable to postpone migration to the Cloud.
Steps Required for Migrating to SAP Business One Cloud
Choose the type
SAP Business One Cloud provides two choices. The term "Private Cloud" refers to one's own virtual server on the Cloud. Multiple SAP Business One accounts are hosted on a single server in the public or hosted cloud. Private Cloud is now both more helpful and more expensive than Public Cloud. You can add customised solutions and allocate resources to the virtual server using the Private Cloud.
Look into third-party solutions
Though most third-party solutions are supported in both the Private and Public Clouds, it is always a good idea to double-check that the third-party solutions you use are compatible with the SAP Business One Cloud.
SQL or SAP HANA?
Finally, you must determine whether to update SAP Business One to SAP HANA or remain with MS SQL.
It is safe to say that switching to the SAP Business One Cloud solution can be a wise move for your company. Ingold Solutions provides a wide range of cloud services, including public, private, and hybrid clouds. Our services are both excellent and affordable.
