Understand when the Acumatica Cloud is right for your business
Deploying business management software in the public cloud is a great option for many businesses. If you have industry- or business-specific requirements that dictate where or how your data and services should be hosted, a private cloud deployment may make more sense.
Delivering A True Private Cloud
ERP vendors and their resellers may say their private cloud is “truly cloud”, but you should be aware of these claims. If a private cloud isn’t really cloud, you risk losing the benefits that motivate businesses to choose the cloud in the first place.
Others may say, “We are truly cloud.” But, are you required to install software or add a plug-in? Or are you required to have a specific amount of memory and operating system on your workstation? If you can’t access your software from a simple browser, it can be “hosted”, but it may not be in the cloud at all. Acumatica is built for the cloud and accessible from any popular web browser, with no software required to be installed on your PC or mobile device.
