To-Increase Addresses the Cons of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in the Cloud

Perceived lack of flexibility and security concerns of cloud ERP frame discussion in new blog post.

Norwell, MA, September 22, 2011 --( To-Increase, a provider of Microsoft Dynamics solutions for Industrial Equipment Manufacturers (IEM), addresses the concerns felt by larger corporations that consider implementing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in the cloud with its new blog post. A perceived lack of flexibility and security are chief among the cloud ERP concerns this new blog post discusses.

ERP in the cloud has captured significant industry buzz, for both its ability to reduce costs and capability for rapid implementation. But among the industry excitement surrounding cloud ERP are legitimate industry concerns, particularly in regards to flexibility and security, and particularly among larger enterprises.

"Because it can be rapidly implemented and cost-effectively managed, cloud ERP is quickly emerging as an industry solution for small and mid-sized companies," writes Luciano Cunha, Global Industry Director, To-Increase. "But flexibility and security concerns are keeping some larger companies on the fence. Fortunately, cloud ERP concerns are as manageable as they are legitimate."

Cunha goes on to reveal how the ERP solution his company represents, Microsoft Dynamics, is able to overcome common cloud concerns, including:

· Flexibility - by creating ERP software that is designed from the ground up to cope with ever-changing and dynamic markets, such as Industrial Equipment Manufacturing

· Security - by adhering to stringent data confidentiality provisions

"ERP in the Cloud is and will continue to be a buzzing topic among industry professionals," concludes Cunha. "And as with any buzzworthy topic, the pros and cons must be weighed and scrutinized to ensure it is the right solution for your organization."
