Ovum Publishes SaaS Paper Consistent with Acumatica’s Deployment Flexibility Approach

Paper describes key issues and recommends maintaining flexibility between on-premise and SaaS to match changing business needs.
BETHESDA, Md., December 8, 2009 – Acumatica, a provider of web-based accounting, ERP, and CRM software, today announced that it has been recognized among service providers offering flexible enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions in an Ovum report entitled, “Nine questions to ask about SaaS.” The paper describes the benefits of maintaining the flexibility to switch between SaaS and on-premise when selecting ERP software applications.

The Ovum paper discusses nine questions that customers need to answer before deciding between on-premise and SaaS solutions, including key issues such as regulatory compliance, security, customization, and IT budgets. The paper also describes how external factors such as mergers and the economic climate can influence a company’s ERP purchasing decision as well as the need to switch between on-premise and SaaS. Acumatica is recognized as a vendor that offers the flexible, adaptable option to move between in-house and SaaS using the same code.

“ERP requirements can change quickly and frequently,” said Warren Wilson, Ovum Senior Analyst and co-author of the report. “Customers with changing requirements should purchase a solution that provides the flexibility to move between an on-premise deployment, a hosted deployment and a SaaS implementation, with low migration and customization costs.”

As recommended in the paper, Acumatica allows customers to purchase a license and deploy on premise or purchase a SaaS offering on the Windows Azure™ platform. Customers can switch between the offerings as their business needs change.

“We are pleased that Mr. Wilson and his colleague Timothy Stammers have addressed the critical issues of SaaS deployments in their latest research,” said Ezequiel Steiner, Chief Executive Officer of Acumatica. “Our web-based product design supports both in-house and SaaS deployments so mid-sized enterprises can control their data and deployment model as business requirements shift.”

Acumatica offers web-based customization tools so clients can change the look and feel, the business logic, or the database fields in their solution no matter which deployment model they have selected.

The paper “Nine questions to ask about SaaS” is available from Ovum’s research portal and from Acumatica’s website (
