In case you are solving the question of whether to keep the servers in the company or to use the cloud for this, this blog can help you in your decision. There is no solution that fits every company. In SNAP, we have our passion for the cloud and we do not keep it in a secret. Even so, we bring you an equal view of both solutions.

WHAT IS A SERVER?

A server is a computer or device that enables data transfer. Its task is to fulfill the client’s requirements. The server simply delivers the information that your computer (client) requests.

WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS?

We have two basic options: on-premise or cloud server. Both options have their pros and cons. If you are dealing with this in a company, it is important to consider several factors while making a decision.

WHAT IS ON-PREMISE?

On-premise servers are physical devices located directly at your company and you are responsible for their maintenance.

WHAT IS A CLOUD SERVER?

The cloud server is hosted virtually through a third party that manages this server.

HOW TO DECIDE?

You still don’t know which solution is suitable for your company?

NOW LET'S LOOK AT HOW THESE TWO OPTIONS DIFFER AND HOW YOU SHOULD DECIDE

On-premise ERP

Costs

If you choose an on-premise solution in your company, the costs of setting up and maintaining it will always be higher than with a cloud ERP solution.

Security

When you have on-premise data security is in your hands. For some companies, this can be an advantage, as they know how to take care of it themselves. But on the other side, many companies see it as a big challenge.

Growth

For the growth of an on-premise solution, it is necessary to spend a lot of work and finances. Ensuring regular new hardware or IT experts is not always financially beneficial for companies.

Reliability

The on-premise solution is not dependent on an internet connection. This can be a great advantage for companies that do not have connectivity available in all departments.

Cloud ERP

Costs

There is usually a monthly fee associated with the cloud solution, which can also change based on how the business grows. Thanks to the fact that companies do not have to invest money in hardware, the implementation of a cloud solution is also less time-consuming.

Security

In the case of the cloud, companies must rely on a service provider that takes care of data security. This is not a problem if it is a reliable partner such as SAP. It has been on the market for 50 years, and data security is one of the biggest priorities for SAP.

Growth

The cloud makes it very easy for businesses to grow. It also provides great flexibility and the SAP Business ByDesign product also provides unlimited data storage.

Reliability

Cloud’s ERP must rely on an internet connection. And today it is not a problem for most companies.
