Toward the Next Normal: The ERP's Role in Supporting European Manufacturers
This IDC Perspective looks at the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on European manufacturing supply chains in the context of technology consumption. With ERP standing out as providing more end-to-end visibility than any other key technology used, it will also help pave the way to the "new normal." To that end, we explain the importance of investing in a new generation of ERP rather than relying on ERP legacy. "ERP has helped European manufacturers successfully buffer the impact of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 crisis. Going forward, ERP will be an indispensable technology for all manufacturers to help operate in the 'next normal.' This requires a mindset change — away from seeing ERP just as a transactional system to being an enabler and strategic decision-making tool for the greater challenges ahead," said Maggie Slowik, research manager, IDC Manufacturing Insights.
