ERP’s Future Is Hybrid Cloud
This article briefly explains that cloud computing is the future of ERP systems and that they will be more successful if they integrate the two. It states that many systems are already a “hybrid” and that it is a lot easier to integrate an ERP system as this hybrid than it is alone.
1. The article stated that cost for this “hybrid” would be lower than integrating a regular ERP system. Do you feel that reduction of cost out weighs some of the risks of cloud computing?
2. Do you agree or disagree that the “hybrid” way is the way of the future or should the two systems continue to be separate? Why?
3. The article also mentions a project that Microsoft is developing where users with no programming experience could soon develop applications. Do you think this will be successful? Would it be bad for IT/programming job security?
