SaaS or On-Premise for ERP Software?

Mark Canes

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) now rivals the traditional on-premise license model for many companies considering implementing or changing ERP software. So what are the pros and cons of the two approaches (in fact, there are 3 approaches, but that's a subject for another day).

As a vendor of Inventory Accounting Software, I bring some bias to this discussion, even though my company offers both models. But I found this really interesting and informative, and totally impartial, presentation on this subject here: *Please note that this post has been updated and the presentation mentioned is no longer available.  For more information on comparing the two approaches download our Comparison Guide:

The author / presenter makes some very good points, many of them obvious but frequently overlooked. I think any company looking at an ERP or Accounting Software Package could benefit from spending 10 minutes on this presentation.
