Challenges in Managing Complex Enterprise Applications and On-Premises Infrastructure
ETRM applications such as Endur is a highly complex application that plays a central role in a company’s vital business operations. Managing complex enterprise applications necessitates specialized expertise to maximize their potential and ensure optimal performance.
Scaling an on-premises infrastructure entails substantial downtime and disrupts the workflow of application users. Ensuring seamless integration and interoperability between different applications, databases, and technologies while safeguarding on-premises hardware, network, and physical elements can be expensive and reliant on human intervention.
Moreover, keeping complex enterprise applications and on-premises infrastructure up to date with patches, bug fixes, and upgrades is a continuous task. It requires careful planning, testing, and coordination to minimize disruptions and ensure the entire system remains stable and compatible with other components. This leads to setting up and expanding or upgrading components within one’s domain which is complex and pricy.
Benefits of Migrating to the Cloud
Factors to Consider when Choosing Between Self-Owned and 3rd Party-Owned Cloud
IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) and PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) are two cloud computing models offering different infrastructure and application management levels.
IaaS provides virtualized computing resources, giving users control over infrastructure and application environments. PaaS, on the other hand, abstracts infrastructure complexities, offering a platform for application development, deployment, and management without worrying about underlying infrastructure details.
Ultimately, the choice between IaaS and PaaS depends on the business’s specific requirements and preferences.
Consider the following factors when choosing the most suitable cloud solution for your business needs:
3rd Party-owned (PaaS)
Control your data hosting – cloud subscription and geography, tighter security and more control over various component of the infrastructure.
Cloud subscription and geography are controlled by the Cloud Provider and you have much lesser control over the customization individual components of the cloud.
Custom Code Support
Tighter control and security on enhancements, bug fixes, and deployments with seamless integration with CI/CD processes.
Custom code hosting on PaaS servers necessitates extra configuration between client and provider, increasing reliance on PaaS for CI/CD integration and ensuring a graceful deployment.
Easy integration with Endur, ERP, supply chain management (SCM), production scheduling, financial reporting tools, and datalakes.
Additional connections must be built with hosted infrastructure to communicate to PaaS provider to integrate these applications.
Maintenance & Security
Automated Endur maintenance and monitoring using inbuilt cloud features and tighter control of application security.
Dependency on PaaS provider like – SLA for maintenance, customization, and less control of application security.
Compliance & Auditing
Configured based on SOX compliance and auditing requirements.
Dependency on PaaS support to cater to SOX compliance and auditing.
Provides the flexibility to migrate your software licenses, as-is with minimal or no modifications required, ensuring a smoother migration process to the cloud without repurchasing them.
May require license optimization for your current license or re-architecting your applications to align with the platform’s usage model, potentially leading to cost increases or license adjustments.
