In fact, you can also opt for hybrid ERP software for your business.

What is a Hybrid ERP Solution?

The “best of both worlds” approach perfectly resembles a Hybrid ERP. It has the potential to become world class cloud based software to augment on-premise solution. Hybrid ERP comes with much lower implementation costs compared to an on-premise solution whilst broadening the capabilities of a cloud-based ERP solution.

Hybrid ERP aims at highly influenced business areas and unique business processes. It gives a rock-solid base of cloud applications as well as on-premise functionalities. Though the hybrid model uses two strategies at a time, it has minimum risk. The reason behind this is trustworthy on-premise ERP that works reliably whereas cloud-based ERP adds in more features.

Integrating On-premise ERP System with Cloud-based ERP solution:

Extreme customization has made on-premise solutions time-warped. Businesses operating in distribution and manufacturing industries that have adopted on-premise solutions in early years, which were ahead of the competition at that time, are now facing the drawbacks of customization. This is because on-premise ERP systems lack to provide the agility and responsiveness, that a cloud-based ERP is capable of providing.

On-premise solutions that appeared to be reliable years ago are fast turning out to be obsolete these days. Some expensive ERP applications make it difficult to adapt business-transforming needs. Thus, integrating on-premises ERP systems with cloud-based solutions can improve an organisation’s agility and customising options. This integrated fusion or combinational model of on-premise and cloud-based solution is known as Hybrid ERP solution.


Benefits of a hybrid approach:

Hybrid ERP solution is flexible with low implementation costs. Industry sectors like digital media, business and professional services can be obliged in a much better way by hybrid ERP solutions.

Hybrid ERP is also known as two-tier model because of the bimodal combination of core on-premise ERP features and cloud-based ERP features. For example, ERP and CRM integration can greatly improve an organisation’s operational performance. A modern enterprise needs a modular application and multi-source environment like hybrid ERP, as it easily integrates with other enterprise technology and business process systems.
