ERP Transformation

ERP TransformationAs part of the business process management review, the systems used to perform transactions, store data and provide reporting come under scrutiny and as a result non-performing or inadequate systems can lead to an ERP transformation.

Do you have an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system ?
     Does it give you the results that you require ?
Do you need an ERP system ?

The objective of an ERP transformation should be to create a central system which will support your operating model whilst giving the benefits of efficiency in business  transactions and global reporting capabilities.

In our experience, many ERP system implementations do not give the expected results. Typically the implementations cost more than expected and take longer than planned whilst not delivering the required result.

This can be due to several factors:

  • lack of business stakeholders because they do not understand the business objectives,
  • lack of a clearly defined scope and project plan so the project is continually creeping,
  • misunderstanding of business requirements,
  • the team is too big and unmanageable,
  • and probably the most important reason – DATA ! Any system is only as good as the data put into it and if the data is bad then the results will be bad.
