Just a short while ago, most businesses feared the cloud. Concerns grew surrounding security and data exposure because people couldn’t fathom the idea of having someone else control the servers where sensitive information was stored. But then the early adopters started evangelizing the benefits they were seeing from moving to the cloud. There were cost savings, productivity increases and ironically, an increase in security. These benefits, and more, carry over to a cloud-based ERP solution as well. However, just because someone else sees something as a benefit doesn’t mean it will automatically equate to a successful implementation on your part. In order to ensure success in the cloud, you have to set the right goals for your project.
Statistics show that majority of businesses have saved money by moving to the cloud. Once thought to be a huge security risk, businesses now welcome the cloud with open arms because they see the many benefits that Software as a Solution (SaaS) has to offer as far as:
- Reduced management costs
- Reduced training costs
- Lower infrastructure costs
- Disaster recovery
These benefits apply to ERP solutions that are hosted in the cloud as well. Companies that choose to implement cloud based enterprise resource planning such as Microsoft Dynamics have seen these benefits almost immediately, and those who are looking to upgrade to the new AX7 release should feel comfortable knowing that this recent version is moving to a cloud first approach with this solution.
FluentValidation is a small validation library for .NET that uses a fluent interface and lambda expressions for building validation rules. Since input validation is important part of mobile applications, this library comes really handy as it is easy to setup and use. When developing for multiple platforms using Xamarin Forms it is desirable to have one validation codebase that could be used seamlessly for input validation on each platform.
Fluent validation is available through Nuget. We will add the package to one of our PCL projects.
There was a time when businesses avoided cloud-based solutions at all costs.
Over time, however, people began to realize that moving data and applications to a reputable cloud vendor wouldnâ€™t trigger a series of catastrophic events that they once feared. Once early adopters reported how satisfied they were with their decision to utilize the cloud, other businesses began to take notice and it became a serious option for most technical solutions. Nowadays, statistics show that of the 87 percent of small to medium sized businesses who have adopted cloud-based services, 43 percent wish that they had made the move sooner.
There is a reason that cloud computing is the hottest topic in ERP solutions. With the cloud, valuable data becomes available to employees throughout the organization whenever and wherever they are, thereby boosting productivity. With more and more of IT dollars being put toward devices other than PC workstations (think mobile), the computing structure of the organization must be available 24/7/365. The cloud also promises to scale quickly as an organization grows, including the ability to connect distributed employees into a cohesive team.
