On-Premise vs. SAP Hybrid Cloud

July 25, 2016 Karen Marchione

On-Premise & Traditional EDI Networks

On-Premise Software deployments are expensive to maintain, disrupt the change management and global SAP ERP upgrade policies, and do not take advantage of any economies of scale - creating out of control costs.

Traditional EDI network, European E-Invoicing network, or a 100% cloud offering: These still leave your IT team supporting 80% of the work (i.e. figuring out how to get your SAP system integrated with the government processes) and offer no way of providing on-premise contingency (i.e. this means that if the network is down – you can’t ship). Why outsource 20% of the problem?  In that case, all you have done is created another integration point, support risk, and team to involve in annual change management.

SAP Hybrid Cloud

A solution that combines on-premise SAP extensions to manage the customization and integration requirements with a cloud-based service that offers economies of scale. For this definition to work as a business solution, the provider needs to implement, monitor and maintain both the on-premise extension as well as the cloud service.

The SAP Hybrid Cloud Architecture offered by Invoiceware International is the only economical way to manage Latin America E-Invoicing compliance.

Eliminates SAP ERP change management and day-to-day support issues for internal teams
Eliminates IT staff from having to react to constant changes in legislation
Allows for on-premise contingency so you can always ship
Takes advantage of economies of scale in cost: multi-country, less hardware, and subject matter expertise
Provides the benefit of the managed service support; One call to one team offers all support and avoids the search and rescue mission of the past
When you add it all up, the SAP Hybrid Cloud model lowers the total cost of maintaining SAP throughout Latin America
