Cloud applications have dramatically changed our market. Cloud applications deliver exciting advantages, but on-premise applications can be best for some organizations. As always, choice is good. Because having only one option isn’t an option! The key is understanding which option is best for your organization.

When determining which option is best for your organization, it is likely you’ve heard a lot of technical jargon and buzzy exaggerations about the cloud’s “game-changing ability to shatter the status quo, disrupting industries and creating synergies you’ve never thought possible.”

2) Business Intelligence is More than Just Dashboards

When you are looking at ERP solutions for your business, you will see that many—if not all options—provide some form of business intelligence (BI) functionality to visualize data and make smarter decisions.

  • What Business Intelligence is and how BI works
  • The reporting functionality you should look for in BI
  • How BI can combine related data into meaningful metrics and knowledge
