SAP BUSINESS ONE VS. NETSUITE: On-Premise, Cloud or Hybrid

SAP Business One gives you the freedom to choose your preferred deployment model, in the cloud, on-premise or both. Say you want to explore new products or business models, SAP Business One lets you change your deployment model while keeping your database intact.

You can seamlessly move from an on-premise model to a cloud model and vice versa in SAP Business One at any time. The beauty of SAP Business One is that you can even work offline and your data will sync as soon as you reconnect with the ERP giving you anytime, anywhere access.

In contrast, NetSuite is a pure cloud product. The solution is accessible only via an internet browser and you need to have 24/7 internet connectivity to get into your data. In addition It also means that you can’t store your data within your own walls.

As a result, when it comes to scaling your business for growth, SAP Business One wins this race with its flexible deployment options.
