Digital transformation can begin in different ways for any company, but one thing is certain: it has irreversible effects on the business and the people involved. So the way you host your management system and store your business data says a lot about the future of your operations.
When you open the doors for your business to move to the cloud, you are open to a process that will change your business for the better. With ERP hosting in the cloud, for example, your everyday business life becomes more dynamic and agile, as you guarantee data security, increase the productivity and flexibility of your team and also reduce costs.
Want to learn more about some of the reasons you should consider moving your ERP to the cloud? We discussed that in this article.

1. Data Security
The retention of sensitive data is an increasingly relevant issue as citizens and Brazilian law become increasingly concerned about the improper disclosure of information. Furthermore, protecting a company’s data is about ensuring that the company’s essential and strategic operations are preserved.
Therefore, when the ERP is brought to the cloud, the information is encrypted at the origin, adding an extra layer of security to the storage. Another important point is that in the event of an incident, the information is not completely lost as it is kept in a different environment than the original one and allows the disaster recovery plan to be executed.
2. Productivity Increase
The exchange of information from different internal company areas can also benefit from the migration from ERP to the cloud, as it is possible to increase the integration of systems – also with other software, to automate processes and thus to reduce human errors and more quickly access data.
Since the data is accessed via the Internet, any authorized person can view the system or add information at any time and as required. For teams that have to travel frequently or, for example, when working from home, the ERP is always available to get the work done.
After all, any need to update or correct the system does not paralyze the entire operation of the company. All of this increases the efficiency of work and increases the productivity of the teams.
3. Cost Reduction
Bringing ERP into the cloud is synonymous with conserving resources, since the entire structure of a data center no longer has to be built up in the company for data storage.
Other expenses that no longer exist are the cost of maintaining these devices and the electricity to make them work. And without needing your own space for the data center, you can use that excess space for other purposes or move the company to a smaller office that is cheaper to rent.
