Speed and low cost are the two aspects customers anticipate. Meeting such challenges requires real-time transparency that old's applications can’t support.
Organizations often resort to archiving data, metadata, processes, and audit trails outside the core ERP, in spreadsheets or disparate applications where they have to compromise on compliance & security. This happens when they don’t have the ability to readily customize their software.
Poor visibility and limited capacity with regards to inward and outside cooperation are experienced while requiring manual workarounds, just to keep up pattern execution.
Customizations are extremely troublesome with on-premise ERP. Also, rolling out new improvements takes weeks, if not months to achieve, even from an expensive outsider advisor.
