We recommend organisations review their processes and data models, and their supporting systems, every 7 to 10 years. Regular review of your ERP’s performance against what your organisation requirements are will help determine any inefficiencies early, and allow delivery of timely maintenance to maximise its lifespan. A review will also determine whether it’s an optimal time to maintain an existing implementation, or replace it entirely.
An Enterprise Resource Planner (or ERP) is an integrated suite of ICT Systems that share a common process and data model, supporting end-to-end business workflows. These integrated systems unite otherwise segregated processes in finance, human resources, procurement and operations, helping to track information and gather insights across an organisation.
