How to Define your Business with ERP Roadmap

Nowadays, almost every organisation prepares an ERP roadmap focussing on modernisation, business transformations, cost-cutting and cloud technologies. Through the business software or Enterprise Resource Planning, the business gets involved in the vendor’s roadmap. This gives sense to the business how to evolve, change and support.

By the time when enterprise felt pressurised to move into Cloud, they need to think on the strategies, during that time they require their own roadmap. Primarily, in the case of ERP in the Cloud. Though enterprises are making effort to move towards the cloud despite all that it's different from moving the ERP into it. In fact, you might be confused that your ERP is in Cloud but in actually your route is different from the vendor’s roadmap.

Smart decisions require understanding so you should have the knowledge related to the cloud technology. For instance, if we take an example of SaaS or software as a service has a major effect on the CRM and marketing automation but still, it doesn't much affect the ERP.

Although, moving ERP to cloud is the fool-proof plan by the business. Apart from all the other cloud provider solutions, Azure is the best beneficial platform given by the Microsoft. Through Azure, you will be able to reach globally. Azure gives an incredible scalability irrespective to the size of the business. It gives multiple courses, training, certifications such as Azure 70 532 certifications which will take your hand in-depth of knowledge and skill.  

To make a meaningful change in the business requires a plan. This plan comprise four type of stage:

  • To improve the future make a vision.
  • Unsatisfaction is the key to innovation so whatever is right now never gets satisfied.
  • Prepare a map for low risk.
  • Take feedback on each step of the development.

What makes ERP different?

  • Accurate and up-to-date picture of the company’s performance.
  • Better and bigger picture of the business operation.
  • Reduces the procurement and workforce charges.
  • Efficient and effective timesheet, reports and inventory control.
  • Consistent policies and business processes.
  • Rapid response to the change in the market.
  • Best audit solutions which follow International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP)

Instead of following any service ERP start finding your own path. For many organisations, the best route is to use the assets you have rather than taking the migrations or upgrades which are not required. In case the reason behind the current upgrade is to walk hand in hand with vendor agreement then you need to rethink on that, as vendors keep changing their attention irrespective of the installed base.

Third-party involvement provides the best support alternative model to preserve the ERP investment. Cloud software can truly innovate and integrate your business. But don’t take it for granted as it is a non-optional force which can affect your business and IT severely. It is important to have knowledge about the vendor’s roadmap and analyse it on the regular basis that may help in achieving the purpose. Also, ensure that you assess the alternate route while cloud ERP  market evolves.

Closure Words:

Currently, ERP strategy is the ongoing tool for the business which identifies the gap, needs, opportunities of the business so that the critical areas can be resolved. If you are storing the same data at multiple places which don’t communicate and unable to calculate the estimation of revenue then you are the best candidate to start ERP software.
