A new special report by Center for Digital Government describes how many state and local governments are living in the dark ages when it comes to their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.
On-premise, aging ERP systems have reached the breaking point. Built on decades-old client-server and mainframe technologies, these systems are simply too expensive to maintain. In an era of efficiency and transparency, depending on old software is unsustainable.
Technologies like cloud computing are providing viable solutions to ERP challenges. This whitepaper explains how finance and HR in the cloud can create cost savings, provide a modern platform for government agencies, and unlock siloed data.
"The flexibility available today in private—and even public—clouds changes the question from 'Why cloud?' to 'Why not cloud?'"
