Agility is the ability to move quickly – to be nimble in the face of change. Agility has been a particular focus for businesses since the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Those unique circumstances and the devastating aftermath – especially for the supply chain – have only brought the need for greater agility home. In fact, in Deloitte’s 2022 Manufacturing Industry Outlook Report, researchers wrote: “Business agility can be critical for organizations seeking to operate through the turbulence from an unusually quick economic rebound—and to compete in the next growth period … as leaders look not only to defend against disruption but strengthen their offense.” What agility looks like for businesses will depend on that company’s goals, market and customer needs, but Forbes defines agility in business as the ability to make rapid changes before your competitors do – and to ensure that those changes are done the right way. In 2020, businesses had to pivot swiftly. In 2021, companies were treading water, getting comfortable with their new normal. But in 2022, businesses that have fully embraced a cloud-based foundation will have the advantage. Manufacturers and distributors need to be able to anticipate change – not just react. With Microsoft Dynamics 365 cloud solutions, businesses gain the collaboration, ease of access and timely data required for agility in today’s market.
Cloud-based ERP solutions come with a host of benefits: They’re scalable and flexible, and team members can easily access information from anywhere at any time.
To break through siloes, more companies are using process orchestration to link front- and back-end business applications and teams. Cross-functional teams that use data and technology to drive shared business outcomes have become more common, and low-code and no-code tools have quickly grown to fill gaps in applications.
Companies implement or upgrade ERP solutions to the cloud improve workflows, uncover new opportunities for growth, drive process efficiencies and free up employees’ valuable time for other critical tasks.
