Evaluating ERP Software:
A Roadmap to Success

Evaluating enterprise resource planning (ERP) software doesn't have to be a sanity challenging process—not if you know the steps to take and the order to take them in. In this basic guide to successful ERP evaluation, TEC Analyst Gabriel Gheorghiu lays out a logical, manageable way for you to determine which ERP solutions should make it to your shortlist.

Check out TEC Principal Analyst P.J. Jakovljevic's report on the spin-off joint venture that combines CODA 2go's 30 years of designing and building financial applications with Salesforce.com's cloud computing development platform, Force.com.

If you're looking to squeeze a good deal on a new ERP system, don't forget about the implementation costs—they can become quite substantial. Find out how partnering with a value added reseller (VAR) can help keep your cost of ERP implementation from spinning out of control.
