Cloud computing is a new technology trend which changed how information systems operated and used, while ERP is one of the most used enterprise applications by the market, and considered the core of many corporations. The fact that ERP systems require high resources in term of cost, time and people in order to be implemented and maintained introduced many difficulties for organizations to set up such a vital system, which was the driving force to try to benefit from cloud computing to help organizations to implement ERP systems with less implementation cost and time.The product of this research was an intersect between the available relevant knowledge, and the market, where some market representatives were interviewed to bridge the gap between theoretical and practical point of views, and get deeper understanding regarding issues and features of ERP as cloud service. The purpose of this research was influenced by the potential benefits of using cloud computing technology to implement ERP systems with less time, cost and failure risk consequences, and how ERP as cloud service could ease ERP implementation and reduce required resources from both customers and vendors. The analysis framework was based on the combination of theoretical base, our own expectations, and the interviews results from the two market representative (suppliers and customers).
