Understanding Cloud ERP, lets start with the basics - get the guide.

Let's start with the basics. 

Enterprise Resource Planning software (ERP) is the nerve center for a business. It manages, stores and reports on business processes across all major areas of an organization, usually including production, finance, procurement, human resources, distribution, supply chain and other areas, depending on a firm’s needs. The software commonly operates as an integrated platform that standardizes, streamlines and
analyzes company data as a unified whole.

The origins of ERP systems date back to the 1960s, when software engineers developed inventory management and control programs for tracking inventory, reconciling balances and reporting on production status. This industrial software grew into Material Requirements Planning (MRP) systems for inventory control in the 1970s and 1980s, and research firm Gartner coined the term “ERP” in 1990 as the software came to also encompass back-office functions such as human resources and accounting.

ERP was the sole domain of large enterprises and the epitome of expensive and unwieldy business systems until the advent of cloud computing. Now cloud-based ERP solutions have expanded the market to mid-sized and even small businesses thanks to the software-as-a-service model that reduces the required cost, complexity and software management of such systems.

The need for greater business agility, combined with market forces that reward operational visibility and big data insight, also have spurred widespread adoption of ERP systems in recent years.

The North American cloud-based ERP market will grow from $8.4 billion in 2018 to a predicted $11.1 billion by 2022, according to research firm, Statista, with the global cloud ERP market reaching $28 billion. The global market for ERP software as a whole was $34.4 billion in 2017.
