The number one reason to host your ERP system internally is security. Although it also means investing in your employees to have someone or a staff who can service your ERP infrastructure, if it’s running on a private cloud that should keep your system clear from outside hackers or corporate espionage. And if it’s tied into workflow management, all the more reason to keep your cards close to the vest.
