Microsoft Azure and Epicor: The Cloud ERP Dream Team

By TJ McDowell

Microsoft Azure Epicor Cloud ERP

Epicor Releases Cloud Solutions on Microsoft Azure 

No software innovation has had more impact in recent years than cloud computing. The ability to host enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions in the cloud has empowered businesses of all sizes to transform their processes by operating from a responsive, user-friendly platform. Cloud platforms are even becoming the norm in enterprise software. Epicor, a premier ERP vendor for manufacturers and distributors, has found that over three-quarters of prospects ask about cloud ERP. 

That’s why earlier this year at the Epicor Insights 2018 conference, the ERP provider announced its partnership with Microsoft Azure, the leading cloud platform. By hosting its solutions on the Microsoft Azure cloud, Epicor is poised to advance the performance of its software to make its clients more productive than ever. Read on to learn about the dynamic capabilities that the new cloud platform can bring to your enterprise. 

Performance 

Cloud computing offers enormous advantages to businesses, including scalability, affordability and speed. However, not all cloud platforms are created equal. In fact, no other provider matches the performance of Microsoft Azure. Microsoft Azure has more data centers, servers and connections than any other provider, making it superior in speed and scalability. If your organization has a sudden influx in customer demand or opens a new location, Azure can handle it, giving you the flexibility to only pay for what you use. An ERP solution hosted in such a strong cloud platform supports global business growth without any hassle on your end. 

Security 

Microsoft Azure disproves the myths about the cloud’s poor security. Microsoft sets the standard for data protection, with state-of-the-art infrastructure designed for fast time to recovery and exceptional fault tolerance. To keep you from experiencing downtime, it follows stringent practices and utilizes robust technology to provide rapid disaster recovery.  

Microsoft not only replicates several copies of data in near real time, but also leverages comprehensive security tools to detect threats before they attack your enterprise. With a service level agreement (SLA) of 99.95%, it provides a level of safety that businesses can rarely achieve. If that wasn’t enough, the platform meets an array of compliance standards such as the GDPR, HIPAA and country-specific mandates to protect you from hefty fines. Nothing keeps your enterprise safer than Microsoft Azure. 

Innovation 

Microsoft Azure goes beyond the cloud to provide cutting-edge tools that enhance productivity. Microsoft has made major investments in the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and more innovations to connect processes, machinery and data throughout your enterprise. This powerful functionality automates tasks and compiles data to detect malfunctions, accelerate processes and keep up with customer demand. With the advanced technology of Azure, Epicor will create new features, such as advanced search and speech-to-text, to improve manufacturing and distribution processes.
