Cloud ERP doesn’t seem like a new trend in 2022. ERP solutions have been around the industry for almost a decade, and most vendors are now cloud-only or offering both cloud and on-premise deployments or a hybrid model.

Mobile ERP was well on its way to becoming the norm before the pandemic hit. ERP systems with zero-touch automation, interactive assistance, an intelligent advisor, and more innovations are stepping into the market to streamline business processes and achieve new levels of efficiency. Intelligent ERP can optimize workflows, shorten lead times, and reduce errors related to data import and processing. Some of the modern AI-based tools can utilize the potential of system-generated data to initiate more informed decision-making by helping to identify red flags before they disrupt the business.

The industry is also getting filled with intelligent and AI-enabled ERP systems that could streamline resource planning operations. Hyper scaling is the new heading in the ERP space, but still, some ERP vendors have only recently begun offering services to help their customers use the platform.

When embarking on an ERP implementation, choosing the best ERP software is one of the most important things that any business should do. However, with hundreds of different ERP options in the marketplace, it can be overwhelming to figure out which system is the best. Enterprise Viewpoint Magazine has come up with this special edition on “Top 20 ERP Solution Providers 2022” to help businesses and CEOs get a clear picture of the current ERP trends amidst the noise around.
