This week, SAP announced “Rise with SAP,” a program that includes the ability to “lift and shift” legacy, on-premise SAP ECC and S/4HANA and host them on a hyperscaler/IaaS as a subscription, as well as the acquisition of Signavio, a process mining tool, similar to SAP partners Celonis and IBIS’ Star+. The program begs the question: with no SaaS ERP option available from SAP, how is extending your reliance on highly customized applications (that are difficult and expensive to adapt) positioning you for success? Is it postponing the inevitable migration you need to remain competitive in your market?
For SAP ECC customers, we believe it’s important to consider these 3 questions:
SAP’s ERP strategy is clearly in sharp contrast to the ongoing shift to SaaS ERP. As industry analyst and founder of TechVentive, Brian Sommer, recently put it: “Companies don’t want a driveway full of tools and car parts, they just want to get in a car and drive. They want solutions—and if they hear a bunch of futuristic plans and ideas and see a few prototypes of things a vendor might someday make available, they don’t want that. They want to hear that there is something they can take advantage of and take home and implement today.”
Over 10 years ago, predicting a dramatic shift in the ERP market, Oracle made a big bet on a full suite of integrated, highly automated cloud business applications that support the planning and decision-making needs of larger organizations. Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP is built and delivered on the highly secure and advanced Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. And, in 2016, Oracle acquired Netsuite, bringing SaaS ERP to small and midsize companies. Over 31,500 customers rely on cloud ERP from Oracle today to drive business performance and help prepare for whatever is next.
The next frontier of business is being shaped right now and every part of your business and IT investment strategy needs to be reassessed in this context. Looking through this lens, you have the choice of being cemented to your past or evaluating how modern cloud applications can help you chart and navigate your future.
Oracle Cloud ERP is a platform for excellence and business innovation.
What’s the bottom line? Oracle is helping thousands of customers drive their business performance with Cloud ERP today, not making vague promises about what might come in the future.
Don’t take our word for it. See what the analysts are saying. In fact, you might be surprised to see in the Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Cloud ERP for Product-Centric Enterprises, that Oracle Cloud ERP is the ONLY Leader in their study. And you might be more surprised to see who’s not even listed!
