How to Select the Right IT Hosting Provider for ERP and Mission-Critical Applications Shared by JamesRichard
Because it is tempting to go with a 'name brand' hosting provider, there is a great danger that the 'name brand' provider will dictate what capabilities and expertise you should focus on during the evaluation process. This calls to mind the old fable about the fox guarding the henhouse. There are many different hosting providers that offer a great variety of services, and most can customize their offering to meet your needs. However, it is usually best to find providers that have the most complete 'out of the box' services that match your needs, with minimal customization.
Pricing is also a very important part of the decision. However, it is absolutely imperative that price is not the guiding factor in the decision. It is far more important to calculate the difference in your current costs to support your mission-critical application (whether done internally or by an outside provider) and what it will cost with the new hosting provider. That difference is the most important number and one that you must identify.
In this webinar we will flesh out all of these issues and more.
Why Should you Attend: According to CIO Magazine, it is estimated that up to 10 billion Euros (13.3 billion US dollars) are lost every year due to mission-critical application problems that can lead to a failed system. Those errors are often caused by unrealistic objectives and/or overly aggressive timelines. The most common errors and the percent that each error contributes to a failed ERP installation are listed below:
Obviously failure is the last thing anyone involved with the running of an ERP or other mission-critical application wants. However, the technical platform upon which the application rests, along with the necessary support services can make the difference between success and failure. For this reason, selecting the right hosting provider, with the right skills and experience is one of the most important decisions an organization can make. Anyone evaluating mission-critical applications (ERP, financial systems, etc.) and is considering the possibility of having that application hosted by a third-party provider, should attend this webinar.
