On-Premise and Cloud ERP Deployment Options

Choice is the New Cloud

When considering deployment options for an ERP system, IQMS gives you Choice: on-premise, hosted or Cloud ERP deployment. Providing three deployment options gives you the flexibility to choose the best solution for your company, and your budget.

  • On-premise - Higher initial cost of ownership due to upfront cost of hardware and software acquisition, but the lowest long-term cost of ownership because software license is perpetual.
  • Hosted - Lower initial investment as hardware hosting costs are spread over time and lower long-term cost because software license is perpetual.  Lowers in-house hardware IT footprint and eliminates issues with end-of-life hardware.
  • Cloud - Lowest cost of initial investment because software and hardware costs are spread over time, but highest long-term costs because software licenses are leased, not owned in perpetuity.
