ERP systems enable businesses to bring together and manage core processes and technologies under one system. But the truth is, an out-of-the-box ERP system rarely fits a business perfectly, and even if it does, it is only temporary.

Serverless Computing is considered to be the fourth wave of computing where x86 servers, virtual machines, and containers represented the first three generations. With this new paradigm, developers can squarely focus on the code and without the need to deal with the underlying infrastructure. They never have to plan the number of servers, amount of storage, and the network topology of deployments.
