State of Cloud: Trends & Predictions

Old software paradigm: Update every five years and bear the cost and the pain. New paradigm: Move to SaaS and get continuous updates with less complexity–all in a secure environment that fuels agility, insight, and innovation.

SaaS–it's the future of software. Here's why.

On-premise software acquisitions and updates can be costly and time-consuming—especially for ERP systems. With software-as-a-service (SaaS), that model is upended. In this episode, David Linthicum and guests, Oracle’s Rondy Ng and Deloitte’s Varun Dhir, explain how SaaS changes the game. It removes complexity by giving organizations access to the most up-to-date, secure versions of critical software, without the need to install, maintain, or update it. Ng and Dhir take a “cloud-first, cloud-only” posture, and they believe SaaS is the shortest path to agility, continuous innovation, and ongoing operational improvement. They also give advice on getting started–rethink everything, but start small with core processes, capture value, and leverage success to build out.

Being on a platform that is constantly innovated on with updates, that sort of compound innovation, and can be adopted at will, without shaking up the system, is a very attractive idea.Rondy Ng is senior vice president of ERP Applications Development at Oracle with responsibility for leading all aspects of product strategy, product development, and product delivery for Oracle's ERP applications and cloud services.

Varun Dhir is a principal at Deloitte Consulting. He is a digital finance transformation leader with 20 years of consulting experience advancing innovation that can drive value for finance organizations beyond traditional strategies.
