Sikich launches Cloud ERP Clarity Center to help businesses understand cloud benefits

Takes ambiguity and uncertainty out of cloud technology planning and helps businesses think about their transition to a cloud platform

Cloud Security

In today's technology developments, cloud computing plays an increasingly dominant role. For businesses, taking their applications and data stores to the cloud at the right time, in the most effective manner, prompts a series of decisions, which require education and research. 

Vendors' marketing messages and conflicting claims are not always effective in helping a company determine whether, when, and how to take advantage of the cloud. Sikich has launched a free resource portal, The Cloud ERP Clarity Center, to assist businesses in understanding and planning for cloud computing in the business-critical technology area of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.

Lee House, Enterprise Sales leader at Sikich, says, "ERP in the cloud has rapidly evolved to offer powerful, yet standardized functionality, but the path to the cloud will be different for each company. The scalability, robustness, cost-efficiency, and security of cloud solutions can be of great advantage for those businesses where decision-makers ask the right questions and prepare the company for an effective cloud transition. In The Cloud ERP Clarity Center, we share expertise and resources to make that easier for them."

For many years, Sikich technology consulting services have assisted clients in deciding whether ERP in the cloud, on-premise, or a combination of both works best for their business model and strategy. Sikich consultants have completed many hundreds of on-premise, cloud-based, or hybrid ERP implementations for companies of all sizes and in many industries. 

The Sikich cloud practice incorporates a number of leading ERP solutions, architectural approaches, and deployment methodologies. The firm's consultants help businesses implement such widely adopted cloud ERP systems as Microsoft Dynamics 365, which runs on the Azure cloud, as well as NetSuite. 

Collaborating with Sikich, companies have also implemented their own private cloud infrastructures or built effective hybrid environments that combine the benefits of cloud and on-premise systems.

"At Sikich, we take the time to discuss and understand your business concerns and goals," says House. "We can make unbiased recommendations regarding which ERP solution and deployment model optimally fit your company. Our objective for The Cloud ERP Clarity Center, just like for our consulting, is to enable your long-term success as opposed to selling you a specific product or service."

The Cloud ERP Clarity Center is designed to be a comprehensive, practical resource. The site offers a growing library of articles on a variety of cloud models and trends in addition to content that helps planners understand what today's cloud can offer, commented by Sikich experts. 

Companies can use the Clarity Center's readiness tools to see whether it's time to consider a move to the cloud and what the advantages of doing so might be. They can compare various cloud solutions online and receive an individualized report with recommendations based on functionality and cost. 

Real-life customer stories share the ERP and cloud experiences of other companies, and events listings provide a way to meet Sikich cloud ERP consultants and come closer to choosing an effective approach and the most beneficial solution.
