Purchase to pay in the Cloud vs. On-premise

Given the crucial role that IT plays in today’s business environment, cloud based solutions are also fundamentally transforming the way companies operate. Automating the entire purchase to pay process in the cloud is becoming increasingly common and in wide use among organisations of all sizes in a wide range of industries.

Things to consider

Before taking the decision whether to stay on the ground or move to the cloud, there are several things that need to be considered. For example, which are the pros and cons of the different options? Do the opportunities that the cloud brings to the table outweigh its limitations? What about the security, and not to forget, the cost aspect?

When considering the different options, it is also important to have a thorough look at your organisation’s existing IT infrastructure and IT investment strategy. Additionally your choice should be in line with the overall requirements of your organisation as well as internal security requirements.
