The 5 Differences for Cloud Success

  1. Portability
  2. Security
  3. Forgiveness
  4. Upgrade Elasticity
  5. Completeness

Solution Portability: your UNIT4 solution – deployed your way, without lock-in!

With Agilyx, you gain the guaranteed freedom to choose, and keep adjusting, your deployment options to absorb and adapt to ongoing business change:

  • Move into the cloud.
  • Move out of the cloud.
  • Move to a different cloud.

And because you won’t need to either recode or make any changes to the setup or to your database when moving, this makes it a fast, low-cost and painless option.

Database Security: your UNIT4 solution – reliable, safe and secure!

With Agilyx, you not only gain the lower costs (and all the other advantages) of a truly multi-tenant cloud solution, but also the advantage that your data remains in its own unique and complete database. This gives our customers an extra layer of unparalleled security that even protects against human errors.

We are also in compliance with rigorous security standards:

  • ISO/IEC 27001 (data security)
  • SSAE16 type II
  • PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).
  • TEC: ‘UNIT4 Customers Satisfied in ALL Requirement Areas of TEC’s Multi-Tenant SaaS Accreditation’

For your safety, we also regularly commission outside experts to perform penetration tests, to make sure that we (and your data) are secure from the threats posed by even the very latest hacking techniques.

Disaster Forgiveness: your UNIT4 solution – forgiveness comes as standard!

With Agilyx, you can still quickly and painlessly restore crucial data and reverse potentially crippling ‘disasters’ caused by user errors, even though your solution is deployed via the cloud. Backups are kept for a long time, so even if years have gone by before you notice the loss of data we can still restore it for you:

  • Genuine data restoration NOT just basic business continuity measures.
  • Data recovered in hours NOT days or weeks.
  • No need for expensive third-party backup and recovery solutions.

Upgrade Elasticity: your UNIT4 solution – always the best fit!

With Agilyx, you retain the independence and control to move up to new main releases of your software, at the time that best suits your organisation’s needs and situation:

  • Updates are automatically added when needed.
  • It is your choice to either accept an upgrade or to postpone.
  • The previous two main releases stay supported in the cloud.

ERP Completeness: your UNIT4 solution – stable, complete and future ready!

With Agilyx, you still benefit from the same fully featured, proven ERP solution, regardless of whether you deploy the software on premise or via the cloud:

  • Having exactly the same code, whether via the cloud or on-premise, means unrivalled rich ERP functionality, all available right now.
  • There is no delay or complication in getting the latest advances.

You gain the technical AND business change agility to minimize cost of ownership.

In summary our data centres are:

  • Arguable the most sophisticated in the Asia-Pacific region
  • Are geographically diverse for complete disaster recovery
  • Feature multiple redundancy features throughout
  • Are highly secure and Australian based
  • With support centres operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
