The Digital Disruption Of SaaS Is Transforming
The ERP Software Landscape
Demand for cloud-based ERP solutions is
growing rapidly as midsize and enterprise clients
explore alternative options to legacy on-premises
systems. Pure-play SaaS vendors are seeing
increasing traction, while most traditionally
on-premises vendors are moving rapidly to
transition their business models from license plus
maintenance to subscription.

It’s of little wonder that backup is a favorite of the channel. According to the CTTA State of the Cloud
Channel 2013 report, 61 percent of solution providers offer some form of cloud-based data backup and
recovery service. Moreover, demand for cloud backup is growing: Solution providers report 58 percent
of their customers ask for services for fresh installs or replacements for legacy hardware and software
Small businesses want backup solutions that provide scale, ease of use, reliability and affordability.
To meet the need and demand of this market segment, solution providers need backup services with these critical attributes, plus the manageability and control to deliver hosted services without compromise.
In the digital era, businesses in every industry are becoming technology companies. New business models such as
“product as a service” (in which traditional manufacturers and distributors are driving new revenue streams by
integrating software-based services into their offerings) and new operational models, such as collaboration, social
business, and mobile platforms, mean that nearly every company is deriving at least part of its revenue from cloudbased
So, why are so many of these new cloud solution providers building their businesses on shaky foundations? The
truth is, when your business is based in the cloud, you need more than on-demand leased compute and storage
capacity. You need a cloud that is enterprise-grade, secure, and resilient. Equally important—and overlooked by
too many cloud solution providers—you need a cloud platform that is able to grow your business into the future,
supporting next-generation functionality like Artificial Intelligence (AI). No matter wh

Most IT professionals today recognize that enterprise IT will be hybrid in the future. To provide the optimal foundation for each workload being deployed, the hybrid IT environment will include cloud-based infrastructures—from multiple providers—co-existing alongside infrastructure within the enterprise data center or a hosted environment.
But not all hyperconverged solutions yield the same results. The right hyperconverged infrastructure can meet your IT needs both today and well into the future. In this paper, we will talk about where your data center needs to be in the next five years to meet changing business demands, and how the roles of IT professionals will evolve. We will also review “hyperconvergence” models, and how they can best meet your IT needs both today and in the future, as well as the benefits you can expect along the way. Finally, we discuss what to look for in the right hyperconverged provider, who will position your IT department for success.
IT is undergoing a significant transformation as businesses look to streamline costs and roll out a new class of cloud-based applications driven by a changing digital economy. The IT infrastructure as we know it today is not well equipped to improve on the cost structure for traditional workloads nor handle the velocity demands of a new generation of workloads where IT is a focal point for competitive differentiation. As one approach to address these changing demands of IT, vendors are bringing to market new solutions under a new category called “composable infrastructure”.

Technology enables business transformation To thrive in today’s idea economy, small and midsize companies like yours are using technology to transform their business. Like your peers, you know that mobile applications, cloud-based solutions, and advanced analytics can help you increase productivity, reduce costs, and grow your business. Older servers, storage, and networking products weren’t built to handle the exploding amount of data that is being shared today. In order to take advantage of these modern applications, many companies have found that they need to close the gap between what their business demands and what their IT systems can deliver.
More than ever, businesses are considering a cloud solution for their enterprise resource planning (ERP) deployment over an on-premises system. Cloud technology appeals to these companies because updates and fixes occur automatically with little or no effort from internal IT staff, and because cloud-based solutions provide access to real-time data from anywhere. Employees want tools that make it easier for them to complete everyday tasks and make informed decisions that help the business grow.
Aberdeen’s research report, “Top Performers Know It’s Time to Migrate to Cloud ERP: Here’s Why and How,” uncovers the reasons successful companies are choosing cloud over on-premises ERP models. Download this SmartBite for a quick look at the report’s highlights.

IT leaders working on customer service projects must display an incredible amount of diligence. An organization’s CRM system has become its lifeline to customers, but as customer needs evolve so has the requirements of CRM. According to Gartner, today’s CRM solution must include a laundry list of capabilities outside its traditional core functionality including: native mobile support of the vendor's customer service and support business applications; real-time analytics; industry-specific functionality and workflow; context mining of voice and text; scalable cloud-based systems; social media engagement; suggested next agent action; multimodal capabilities, such as chat within mobile self-service; and even co-browsing. Gartner surveyed the CRM field and evaluated each vendor including Pegasystems.
