With growing demand for software as a service, AFAS looked to deliver its on-premises Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software over the Internet. The service's performance was key, but its price point was equally important. The company successfully delivered AFAS Online by using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 data management software. Now, more than 3,000 customers use the reliable, cost-effective service, and AFAS revenues have increased by 22 percent this year. AFAS is now developing its ERP software to run on Windows Azure and Microsoft SQL Azure.
