ERP Modernization Strategies

ERP Modernization Strategies

This IDC Perspective describes the drivers behind ERP modernizations and the factors that need to be considered when evaluating an ERP modernization project's business case. It also presents five ERP modernization scenario archetypes, identified by the scale of business transformation and the scale of ERP platform transformation. Each of these archetypes has benefits and challenges that should be taken into consideration in the scenario selection process."Making the case for something as fundamental as an ERP modernization project is extremely difficult, especially for large and complex organizations. Choosing the right strategy — and making a strong business case for it — entails multiple factors, including internal company environment, external conditions, and business goals." — European Enterprise Applications Program Manager Edyta Kosowska, IDC Europe
