Staying on top the latest shifts in enterprise resource planning (ERP) strategies and implementations will help IT leaders deliver maximum value from these business-critical systems.
“There are regular updates to the ERP, which could be in the form of features and functionalities that are pushed into the live environment. If there is a high level of customization, a CIO will have to tweak the update in context of the customization. This is cumbersome and leads to additional cost. By going in for a standardized ERP solution, IT leaders can avoid these issues, and most are following suit,” says Abhishek Mundra, Practice Director for enterprise platform services at research firm Everest Group.
