Keeping Up With The Cloud

Business leaders who choose to deploy an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution on premises in an increasingly cloud-trending world have several reasons for their decision. Many choose to keep their system on premises because they are inexperienced with and wary of cloud-based software. Others are concerned they have insufficient resources to move to a cloud solution because their existing system is full of customizations that will complicate migration processes. Some prefer on premises ERP because they feel it better supports regulatory requirements such as ITAR or FDA compliance. Regardless of why your business has chosen on premises over cloud-based ERP, your choice doesn’t have to limit your ability to compete with the companies whose capabilities are elevated by the cloud.

Why Digital Collaboration

We define digital collaboration as the digital systems people use to collaborate internally (within the enterprise network) or externally (with enterprise communities or partners) to get things done.

Modern companies are increasingly structured in silos. Specializations within different enterprise functions, geographic distribution and the proliferation of digital tools isolate people within their immediate business units.

Digital collaboration tools increase collaboration in the enterprise by creating collaboration synergies through a modern digital setting. Digital collaboration tools connect people, information, business applications and company communications, transforming your company into a unified, successful business force.

In practice, digital collaboration platforms provide a number of recent innovative technologies, such as social collaboration, project management and real-time communication, within an integrated digital setting.
