  Thinking About a New ERP System? Read These First
  • Should You Keep or Replace Your Legacy ERP Software? Here's How to Decide
• Cloud ERP for Manufacturing: 6 Considerations
• Secure Mobile ERP—Is It Possible?

If your legacy ERP system isn't getting the job done anymore, you need to do something about it—and fast. The first article in today's roundup will help you decide whether it's better replace it, or simply upgrade to the next version.

If you do opt for an outright replacement, you'll probably want to consider at least one cloud-based solution. Our second article—a must-read for manufacturers—tells you the six things you must consider before ditching your on-premise solution.

And finally, whether it's on-premise or in the cloud, your new ERP solution is likely to be much more mobile-friendly than your legacy system. Our third article walks you through basics considerations for mobile ERP security.
