Oracle ERP Cloud has grown in popularity because they promise greater flexibility for modern businesses, leading to increased operational efficiencies, agility, and scalability. On the other hand, they are less flexible but are secure and reliable, allowing enterprises to maintain better control than their cloud counterparts. However, most IT decision-makers today agree that Oracle ERP Cloud Applications offers more advanced capabilities and are critical to achieving their business goals.

Advantages of Oracle ERP Cloud vs. On Premises Applications

Let’s discuss some of the critical advantages of Oracle ERP Cloud Applications vs. On-premises Applications:

Easy to Deploy and Run

Oracle ERP Cloud can be deployed much faster when compared to on-premise applications because they can be installed and updated over the internet. In contrast, on-premise applications need to be installed on physical servers and each PC or laptop. Upgrades and security patches are also done faster with minimal downtime. With on-premise applications, you are responsible for maintaining the software, data, servers, other hardware, and disaster recovery.

Real-Time Data Access

Many organizations struggle to provide real-time data access to employees who are on the go. With Oracle ERP Cloud Applications, employees across the enterprise can access real-time data anytime, from anywhere, and on any device. It improves productivity and reduces the reliance on IT teams by providing more advanced self-service capabilities for your business users.

Low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

Oracle ERP Cloud applications don’t require any upfront expenditure (CAPEX); instead, you have operational expenditure (OPEX) where you subscribe and pay based on your usage. While the recurring costs add up over time, maintenance and support are significantly reduced as it is taken care of by the cloud service provider. You can also plan expenses better with a predictable monthly, quarterly or annual payment model that includes software licenses, upgrades, support, security patches, and routine back-ups.

Better Data Security and Governance

Oracle ERP Cloud stores data in Oracle’s state-of-the-art data centers with advanced security measures beyond what most businesses can afford. They also comply with several local and international regulations. Therefore, your business data is much more secure in the cloud than when stored on-premise. Oracle ERP Cloud is also easier to govern. You can easily control who can access your data with role-based access controls that reduce the risk of a data breach or unauthorized data access. Additionally, cloud applications enhance compliance with internal and external regulations, minimize the need for customization, and help you create standardized processes across the enterprise.

High Availability and Scalability

As your company grows over time, your need for storage grows along with it. With Oracle ERP Cloud Applications, you can quickly scale up or down as needed based on demand, usage, or user requirements and only pay for what you use. You can quickly scale your business or expand it to other geographies with minimal physical hardware or infrastructure investment. This is not so easy with on-premise applications when scaling up means that you need to invest in additional servers, leading to more extraordinary upfront expenses. Another critical advantage of Oracle ERP Cloud vs. on-premise counterparts is its high availability with almost zero downtime.

Automatic Updates

As your Oracle ERP Cloud environment is managed directly by Oracle, updates are installed automatically, ensuring that your systems are updated and fully secure. You’re always running the latest version with the latest functionality, and your IT staff can save the time and effort needed to install new software patches or updates. It frees them to focus on more valuable initiatives instead of routine maintenance and upgrade activities
