  1. Interesting post. It appears that mobile ERP (together with cloud solutions) is the main area of investment by ERP providers. This is also very tempting subject from marketing point of view. Marketing departments concentrate heavily on how easy and joyful it is to use their ERP systems on customer’s favourite mobile devices.

    Users can have instant access to data and make decisions while being on the move. For example; managers can approve high value purchase orders or check daily supply chain performance.
    For foreseeable future users would still primarily use their laptops in the same way as most of us probably do to create ERP integration posts.

    I would love to learn from anyone who knows what are the security risks (mentioned in second paragraph). To me ERP user logs in to application layer in very similar way on their tablet as one does it on its laptop…

  2. Another considerable barrier of mobile ERP now is the access to compatible devices is still limited to users. Many people in developing and undeveloped countries still cannot affort the smartphone devices or pay for the service fee. So, right now the mobile ERP should be considered only as an additional option for partiular group of users
