Editor's Note: How to Succeed at ERP in the Cloud
Divider
If you're considering moving all or part of your ERP systems to the cloud, here are some considerations that I heard while listening to the finance and tech pros at the recent Modern Finance Experience and Oracle OpenWorld conferences:
Hybrid clouds will be the norm. For at least the next decade, most companies are looking at a mix of on-premises and cloud systems. The good news is that your business processes can be more streamlined even with a hybrid model, but only if you design your hybrid cloud wisely.

Change management is critical. Early on, bring in the users who work with the ERP systems so they can understand how and why business processes will change.

Mind the data. Make sure you have a solid data governance policy—it's especially critical as you knock down data silos.

The fact is, CFOs can't keep up in today's competitive economy by looking at reports focused on how things used to work. As Oracle Vice President for Applications Development Rondy Ng noted, you shouldn't have to wait for the month-end—or always involve IT—to see what's going on in your business.
