Access "Cloud, mobile access hold key to successful ERP systems"

Issue Overview

Business Information - February 2014, Volume 2, Number 1

Don't believe the hype: Enterprise resource planning isn't dead. It's come a long way in its 20-plus years -- and today is on the cusp of a new life. ERP applications are running nearly every part of all kinds of businesses, from social media startups to banks and construction companies. But powerful computing trends are having a very real effect on the traditional ERP system. With more workers demanding everywhere access on their mobile devices, many systems are breaking up and moving to the cloud. Then there's customization: Once an unavoidable necessity, it's going out of style. The No. 1 reason? Cost. When you add layers upon layers of specialized features, upgrades are more expensive and difficult to manage -- and total cost of ownership goes up over time.

This issue of Business Information offers readers a roadmap for tomorrow's ERP, pinpointing the detours they’ll encounter. Readers can expect advice from organizations ahead of the curve, with ERP systems already in the cloud -- why they made the switch, why they would recommend it and what organizations should do to successfully transition. They'll see firsthand the recurring problems facing users -- and discover how to solve them.

It may be full of twists and turns, but with these directions the road to tomorrow's ERP isn't so harrowing after all.  Access >>>
