Learn about ERP in the Cloud from 60s Folksingers Joni Mitchell and Judy Collins?
The only clouds that existed in the 1960s were the physical ones in the sky: cumulus, cirrus, stratus… So when Judy Collins first recorded “Both Sides Now” by Joni Mitchell in 1967, she could not have known what the cloud would mean in the 21st century. And yet, the words ring true today albeit in a totally different context.
“I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all”
Today’s clouds – public, private, and hybrid – can be equally illusory and difficult to understand. Cloud today is the foundation for digital transformation. In the world of ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software, cloud at its core means transitioning from an on-premises environment to a data center hosted alternative. In most cases, it also means that your data does not reside on servers that sit within your own four walls.
But whether you choose a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment for your ERP system, rest assured that your data is not floating aimlessly around in the sky! It’s sitting securely in a high tech data center administered by your chosen Cloud Services Provider (CSP).
