A Framework for ERP Systems in SME Based on Cloud Computing Technology
Present Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) offers expensive models which are hard to implement in Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) due to budget limitations. Moreover, current ERP systems are associated with several issues such as mutual synchronization of multi-typed resources, limited customization, bulky upgrading cost, solution integration, industry functionality, backup hedge and technology updates. These issues render ERP systems implementation painful, complex and time consuming and generate the necessity of a massive change in ERP framework to enhance ERP systems infrastructure and functionality. Cloud Computing (CC) platforms possess the ability to overcome ERP systems discrepancies with cost-effective, customized and highly available computing resources.
