HIGHLIGHTS ERP on Cloud: The winds of change Three rapidly moving developments are shaking businesses across the world: cloud technology, mobile adoption and data proliferation. The enhanced availability of rich data and mobile adoption is ensuring that it can be acted upon instantly.

Industry Indicators of Change Non-core areas in manufacturing such as standard administrative business processes have already moved to cloud- while core processes like production planning, have not yet followed suite Several ERP players, are in the market with cloud versions of their products. Both; the smaller ones and the larger ones have taken cloud seriously and are re-architecting HCM, CRM and other processes to create a new class of applications that complement core ERP In emerging economies, like BRIC and SE Asia; the need is for deploying low cost ERP solutions that are flexible in proportion to needs Large manufacturers are discovering that their needs are no different from those of medium sized businesses. They too are de-coupling core processes and using cloud ERP for non-core processes 3 © 2013 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM
