Panorama Consulting's recent '2017 ERP Report' at first glance could send shock waves through the heart of the SI community as they reported a decrease in companies implementing cloud based solutions. Thinking I had been misguided in attending numerous Cloud seminars, from all the ERP vendors, and positioning Cloud as the way forward my heart sank.

As the beads of sweat started to form I read on and thankfully, it was revealed that SaaS ERP cloud projects have increased so no immediate need to panic. 

The moral of the story: when talking to colleagues or customers take the time to understand what they mean by cloud and do not assume that its is the same as you.
