Small and midsized businesses worldwide are increasingly looking to the cloud as the preferred method of deploying and consuming software. Within the US market, for example, IDC predicts more than 80% of midsized businesses were expected to employ some form of cloud computing by the end of 2014. As small and midsized businesses (SMBs) become more comfortable with hybrid and cloud-only deployments, the depth and breadth of workloads that SMBs are asking for in the cloud continue to expand – and ERP is no exception.

This tool does more than help you with just price but also guides you through the all important TCO conversation. It's especially great for existing customers that may look to the competition for their cloud deployments. If you don't have the conversation . . . some else will.
