07 Mar Avoiding ERP failure
An enterprise resource planning implementation never comes without challenges. Even cloud ERP deployment is a bit of an undertaking just to get everyone in your offices accustomed to using the new solution. Unfortunately, there is an obscenely large number of examples of ERP failures. Defining the “current state” and “future state” business process is the first step to avoiding ERP failure, according to an article at panorama-consulting.com.
Defining the current state processes before you start using a new ERP system will help make sure you have a clear understanding of your whole organization, and you will have a clearer picture of where processes are broken or lack efficiency. Knowing what you lack today and what you want in the future, will make it easier for you to determine which hosted ERP solution you will work for you.
That’s why it’s so important to also define your future state processes. With an on-premise solution this is an essential step because it is important to deploy a solution that will help grow today and support the growth tomorrow. While this is an important step with any solution, a hosted ERP solution offers the elasticity you need to affordably scale up and down with the changes your business goes through. Avoiding ERP failure is simple if you get a solution that is right for your business and one that can adapt with the organization.
