No single ERP deployment method is right for every manufacturer. Your business may have strategies and needs that are not well matched to a traditional on-premises deployment or a strictly defined software-as-a-service (SaaS) deployment.
That is why DELMIAworks offers a broad choice of deployment options that will allow you to pick the solution that is best for your business. When considering deployment options for an ERP system, DELMIAworks gives you Choice: on-premise or hosted Cloud ERP deployment via hosted managed services or SaaS. Providing three deployment options gives you the flexibility to choose the best solution for your company, and your budget.
On-premise - Higher initial cost of ownership due to upfront cost of hardware and software acquisition, but the lowest long-term cost of ownership because software license is perpetual.
Cloud Hosted - Lower initial investment as hardware hosting costs are spread over time and lower long-term cost because software license is perpetual. Lowers in-house hardware IT footprint and eliminates issues with end-of-life hardware.
SaaS - Lowest cost of initial investment because software and hardware costs are spread over time, but highest long-term costs because software licenses are leased, not owned in perpetuity.
