You and your team members have heard about the Cloud. Some of you have already moved particular applications to it—possibly some critical applications. But has your company considered moving your ERP to the Cloud yet?
What does it mean to have your ERP in the Cloud, you ask? Simply put, it means that your ERP applications are hosted by your provider, eliminating the need for your IT group to purchase, install, configure, fix, and upgrade the usual software, server, and storage hardware that support your ERP. This has the potential to drastically reduce your total operational expenses.
For small and medium-sized businesses that are diving into ERP for the first time, the Cloud ERP solution is the right path. For larger enterprises, switching to a Cloud ERP solution can be a big step that perhaps involves re-architecting processes, rethinking security, and evaluating a whole new world of vendors. Still, the benefits of the Cloud can really pay off for these enterprises, and migrating to the new systems can yield massive returns in the long run—both financially and functionally. This migration is where you can use some help—with automation.
Whether you’re planning a new installation of a Cloud ERP solution or planning a migration project from an on-premise installation to the Cloud, you can use Automation Anywhere as a key tool in the implementation. Here’s what you can do:
- Map out new process flows with the Automation Anywhere Workflow Designer
- Migrate your data to the new Cloud ERP application using the latest technologies, such as Excel automation, Web Recorder, image recognition, and scheduler.
- Use connectors to legacy systems to integrate data you thought you could never move.
At the end of the day, your new Cloud ERP system will make you (and your boss) proud. Just as you thought years ago, it’s okay to have your head in the clouds.
