Implementation of Cloud ERP - Moderating Effect of Compliance on the Organizational Factors

Shivam Gupta, Subhas C. Misra


Cloud ERP has changed the way business can be done for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The two important benefits offered by Cloud ERP are: (a) SMEs can log into the internet from any place to access applications and data services at any point in the time. (b) Pay for the services that are used or needed. Although Cloud ERP has taken the IT world by storm and with all the advancement that has taken place so far, there are still issues and challenges that require to be addressed. This paper relates issues pertaining to Compliance with Organizational factors for successful implementation of Cloud ERP.
