ERP in the Cloud: CFOs See the Value
By Di Seghposs on Jan 04, 2013
Still working on your new year's resolution? If you are a CFO, you might be thinking about finalizing the approach you’ll use to move your confidential finance and operations functions to the cloud. On the other hand, you might be unsure about whether you and your company are ready to take that leap of faith into the new technology. You might be wondering whether the cloud technology is able to handle your security requirements, your access rules, your business complexities, and your specific needs for cost reduction. Is it really ready?
Well, Steve Miranda, EVP, Oracle Applications Development, has an opinion to share with you. In its 2013 Looking Forward issue, Financial Executive magazine covers an article by Steve entitled “ERP in the Cloud: CFOs See the Value of Running Enterprise Applications as a Service.” In this piece, Steve states: “The fact that traditionally risk-averse CFOs are open to moving their mission-critical ERP systems into the cloud should be a clear indication to all companies that ERP cloud services are fast becoming the go-to strategy for finance executives looking to access the latest technologies quickly and cost-effectively to support their corporate objectives.”
In the article, Steve talks about Oracle ERP customers, such as Carrie Dolan, Chief Financial Officer of Lending Club and Dan Knutson, Chief Financial Officer of Land O’ Lakes, making cloud and managed cloud choices.
