QAD Introduces QAD Enterprise Applications Solution

Dec 17, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- QAD Inc., a provider of enterprise software and services for global manufacturers, announced QAD Enterprise Applications solution allows global customers to blend deployment of ERP in the public cloud and on premise.


According to a release, designed exclusively for global manufacturers, QAD architecture enables enterprises to implement a full-strength ERP solution via the public cloud or as a blended deployment model containing a mix of both on premise licenses and cloud users. Customers benefit from the same functionality, business processes, internationalizations and user experience across QAD Enterprise Applications regardless of the deployment model.

"As companies continue to embrace cloud applications and cloud deployment strategies, the benefits of on demand ERP systems with strong security, high performance and a common user experience continue to emerge as competitive differentiators," said Nick Castellina, senior research associate, Enterprise Applications, Aberdeen Group. "The capability to run ERP on premise at company headquarters, for example, with on demand ERP deployed in other locations, offers manufacturers a pragmatic approach." A Gradual Pragmatic Approach to Running ERP in the Cloud Global manufacturing companies that choose to migrate to the cloud can rarely move existing implementations overnight. QAD blended deployment allows customers to gradually migrate ERP solutions to the cloud. "Deployment flexibility is essential," said Gordon Fleming, QAD chief marketing officer. "Global manufacturing customers with existing QAD Enterprise Applications are interested in the benefits of the public cloud platform, but want to take a gradual, pragmatic approach to getting there." QAD Enterprise Applications On Demand provides the same functionality and user experience as QAD Enterprise Applications On Premise software. As software-as-a-service (SaaS), QAD On Demand benefits customers with automatic upgrades and rapid implementation, per-user pricing and global accessibility. IT departments globally are recognizing the benefits of having QAD manage application support, server hardware, systems administration, database administration, upgrade planning, first-line user support, disaster recovery, usage and analysis reporting.

QAD delivers both deployment independence and deployment portability. QAD On Demand, QAD On Premise and QAD blended deployment options deliver the functionality that global manufacturing companies require to become more effective enterprises.

The scalability of QAD Enterprise Applications allows companies with as few as five users and as many as thousands to use the same applications. QAD helps level the playing field for companies to operate on par with global organizations.

QAD Enterprise Applications offers built-in support for local languages, currencies, business practices and legal requirements.

"QAD realizes that no matter what deployment model a customer needs, it's vital to deliver consistent functionality," added Fleming. "One size does not fit all so QAD innovates to deliver the flexibility our manufacturing customers need to become more effective enterprises. Since 2007, we've delivered QAD Enterprise Applications to customers via the public cloud. Now, QAD customers can select the proven solutions and the flexible delivery model that works best for them today and easily scales for business in emerging and new markets in the future."
