If you're looking for an ERP system for your business, then you're most probably being overwhelmed by choices. One of the most important decisions you'll need to make is whether to select a cloud-based ERP solution or one that's installed locally.

The basic difference between on-premise ERP (Installed Locally) and cloud ERP is clear: On-premise ERP solutions are installed locally on your company's servers and then managed by your IT or accounting staff while cloud ERP (also called SaaS, or Software-as-a-Service) is provided as a service. With this type of deployment, a company's ERP software and its data are managed centrally (in the "cloud") by the ERP supplier and are accessed by customers using a web browser or a application platform connected to the cloud.

What may not be so clear is that the type of ERP deployment model you choose can have a significant impact across your business. On the table below we try to expand on both ERP Software & Cloud Computing:
