With the new hi tech, hi definition technology driven world progressing at the rate of a gazillion miles per hour, it is an increasingly difficult an issue to stay abreast with the latest technologies and even more, invest in them for you business needs. Your ERP system can be a complex intricacy to understand if you just read about the technology in ads here and there and listen to the highlights of the latest technology webinar from your bosses. So here we are to explain to you about the latest technological advances in SAP , your trusted ERP software system, to help you take the best educated decisions and invest without any second thoughts according to your business needs.
So, What exactly is SAP Cloud and how can it help my business and simplify my IT infrastructure ? If you have this question , you already might be an IT professional, a business owner, an SAP user or somehow related with the ERP world and obviously know about the ‘Cloud Technology’ era. But just for a short revision, lets shed some light on what is the cloud technology before we get into SAP cloud. So , in simple terms, cloud computing means that instead of the software and hardware on your desktop ,a third party company provides the users, a service, using their own infrastructure, over the internet in a seamless fashion. So, the basic software, all the required data is stored in their servers and you just access it seamlessly through the internet on your computer to give a an experience as if you are running the application on the same computer. This terminates all costs of securing data backups, time and money investments in cyber security , investments in system upgrades, etc on the user end, making the game extremely simple and worry free for the user. So, in short, the cloud technology for ERP enables you to have an efficient ERP system to run a business and worry about the business alone, not about the hardware, servers, maintenance, system upgrades and security issues which take your valuable time away from your business .
Cloud based services such as search engines, web based mail services like yahoo and Google and even Google documents are some basic daily life services that you use on a regular basis.
Some typical cloud computing jargon you need to know is the classification of cloud based services such as
- IaaS – infrastructure as a service – Servers & Storage
- SaaS– Software as a service- Applications & Software
- PaaS– Platform as a service – Development platforms
