Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are used by large organizations to integrate business processes across various departments, and optimize their workflow. However, recent research from Gartner asserts that traditional (or “legacy”) ERP solutions are under threat from cheaper, more flexible systems as cloud-based solutions continue to mature. Industry giants SAP and Oracle have responded to this increasing competition from smaller vendors by changing their mix of on-premises and cloud offerings.
As the ERP landscape continues to evolve amid this disruption, so too does the conversation around the subject.
