Implement Sage X3, Your Way.
Sage X3 is a cloud native ERP solution, allowing your business total flexibility over how you manage the deployment of your solution. The core Sage X3 product remains the same, with all the user-intuitive and mobility features you would expect from a cloud solution; making it simple and easy to manage your business, on the go. The three most common approaches are as follows:
Mysoft Managed Cloud (SaaS)
Sage X3 cloud management and deployment all managed by Mysoft, using AWS as a secure online cloud service for total security and system back-ups.
All core Sage X3 functionality and Mysoft managed services are available in this offering. This means your business will not need to be involved in the specification, delivery or maintenance of the servers. All of this is managed by Mysoft.
You can also pair this with the Mysoft rapid delivery approach, which delivers a semi-pre-configured solution for finance and offers a standard set of best practice business processes that will enable your company to get up and running with Sage X3 quickly. The solution is a fast set up as it sits outside your domain and operates independently of the rest of your IT infrastructure. Patching will all be handled by Mysoft (as covered by our patching service) and with less reliance on internal IT skills and a subscription pricing structure there is no initial, large upfront investment.
Best suited to:
Companies with standard business processes who prefer not to make an initial lump sum payment and/or have limited in-house IT knowledge or resources. Companies that do not require system customisation or development.
Private Data Centre
The Private Data Centre option is a ‘best of both worlds’ route. It is a hybrid option that allows more control than a “cloud” offering. Access to the database technology etc. is excluded and the system sits in isolation to the company domain. There is less responsibility and up-front cost than the on-premise solution.
For a Private Data Centre scenario, servers are provided on a subscription basis but are integrated (usually via site-to-site VPNs) into the core network. Full access to the data is available, making it ideal for integrations etc, and many of the services available in a cloud environment can also be used in this scenario.
Best suited to:
Companies with more complex processes that require an integration to non-cloud systems, but still want to take advantage of a subscription SaaS-type plans.
Hosted on your site using the hardware and infrastructure that you already have. Alternatively, you may need to purchase hardware and infrastructure separately in order to host a new Sage X3 system. This is the route of traditional software deployments and requires a level of in-house IT skills in order to maintain and update the Sage X3 infrastructure.
By taking this route you would purchase the hardware upfront and buy the software on subscription. It also allows you and your Sage X3 Business Partner total flexibility to tailor the solution to your unique business processes. However, this route requires a larger upfront investment and involves having a more mature level of IT resource at your company; sometimes not a feasible option for smaller companies looking at Sage X3.
Best suited to:
Enterprises with available capital to invest and an in-house IT team, companies with poor internet connectivity and/or with a desire to keep data on-site.
If you’re unsure about which option will best suit your company the best thing to do is talk to a Sage X3 Business Partner about your options. The three separate options allow your company to have total flexibility over the deployment of your Sage X3 solution depending on 3 main elements: depending on your in-house technical skills, the level of customisation you require, and strategic plans for enterprise software within your organisation. The core functionality of Sage X3 remains the same, providing you with a simpler, quicker and mobile accessible way to manage your business.
