Justification of ERP InvestmentsPart Two: The Intangible Effects of ERP
The intangible or non-financial benefits of an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) system can be viewed from several perspectives. For illustrative purposes, the discussion will focus on the benefits for accounting, product and process design, production, sales, and management information system MIS functions. From the overall company standpoint, ERP provides a framework for working effectively together and providing a consistent plan for action. Reprinted from Maximizing Your ERP System by Dr. Scott Hamilton.

EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM JUSTIFICATION: Duplicate data maintenance, for example, requires personnel time in entering data (and possibly managerial time in determining which set of data should be used for decision making). Expediting efforts have a visible effect of consuming personnel time. These quantified cost savings can also be used to show impacts on financial results. *This is Part Two of a four-part article reprinted from Maximizing Your ERP System by Dr. Scott Hamilton. Bridging the theory and realities of current ERP systems,

Selecting PLM Software Solutions Part 2 - Problem Overview
Past experience shows us that the vast majority of enterprise technology evaluations run over time and budget, and once selected, the majority of the implementations fail to meet functional, return on investment (ROI) and total cost of ownership (TCO) expectations. Many companies have consequently been stuck with under-performing software products and dejected users, and are still unable to gauge their system to determine how far they are from the ideal solution for their business requirements.

EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM JUSTIFICATION: Solution Part Four Presents Examples of Applying the Solution Part Five Makes User Recommendations Problem Overview Prospective customers typically struggle with the following issues when selecting enterprise technologies: Their selection project teams have no effective way to define their business requirements and thereby identify the critical vendor and product questions (criteria) necessary to successfully initiate the evaluation process.

Justification of ERP InvestmentsPart Four: Replacing or Re-implementing an ERP System
An investment analysis focusing on enterprise resource planning (ERP) benefits frequently applies to those firms initially justifying an ERP implementation. It can also be used to justify a 're-implementation' when the initial efforts have failed to produce desired results. Reprinted from Maximizing Your ERP System by Dr. Scott Hamilton.

EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM JUSTIFICATION: figure 3.6. In this example, some general rules of thumb (or ratios) have been used to estimate the one-time costs. The costs to re-implement an ERP system should be significantly lower than implementing a new system. The users have familiarity with system usage, and should know the system strengths and weaknesses. Many firms can live with the shortcomings of their existing system. External assistance from the software vendor and consultants can help develop solutions to shortcomings, and should in any

Justification of ERP InvestmentsPart Three: Costs of Implementing an ERP System
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation costs can be divided into one-time costs and ongoing annual costs. Both types of costs can be segmented into hardware, software, external assistance, and internal personnel. Reprinted from Maximizing Your ERP System by Dr. Scott Hamilton.

EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM JUSTIFICATION: As shown in the example estimates in figure 3.4, a ratio of .25 has been used for total annual costs related to ERP software. A phased implementation approach may mean that additional software must be purchased. A data collection system, for example, may be implemented as part of a second phase. Hardware. Ongoing hardware costs will reflect new requirements specified by the ERP vendor to run the software. External Assistance . External assistance should be used as part of a continuous improvement program

The High Costs of Non-compliance for Manufacturers
The High Costs of Non-compliance for Manufacturers. Get Free Knowledge and Other Solutions Related to The High Costs of Non-compliance. What manufacturers must realize is that through efforts to comply with regulatory standards, they can make their manufacturing operations more competitive. Indeed, compliance is transforming the companies that have taken the time to re-architect the many processes used for managing suppliers, channel partners, resellers, and customers. For manufacturers that ignore compliance, on the other hand, the costs can be steep.

EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM JUSTIFICATION: in this area. An example of this is HP s strategies for recycling the tens of millions of CRTs being retired from use throughout Europe. HP has been asked to desegregate the most toxic components of their CRTs and recycle the less-harmful elements. They ve been able to accomplish this using the processes put in place from DfE initiatives over 10 years ago. There are many other examples of manufacturers gaining competitive advantage through compliance, and the one take-away all of these companies share is

Best of the Three CRM Solutions
In 2004, Best Software acquired ACCPAC through its parent company The Sage Group plc and has now released a new version of its CRM product: SalesLogix 6.2.

Fault Meets Performance --Comprehensive Infrastructure ManagementPart 1: The Problem
Customers, suppliers, partners and other business needs dominate IT decision making, so when these business partners complain about slow applications or interminable downloads, IT listens – or else. Catching and correcting the innumerable faults and performance problems that bring down IT environments is more important than ever.

EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM JUSTIFICATION: its current behavior. For example, an SNMP trap kicks out an alarm that a virtual private network (VPN) is operating at 80 percent capacity. IT managers see the alarm, assume that the VPN should be operating at a lower capacity, and without any historical context, assume the VPN is about to fail. But if the VPN normally operates at 80 percent, then it is unlikely that the VPN is causing any performance problems. Therefore, it shouldn t need replacing. Without that information, IT managers seeing the

The Store of the Future

The Market Impact of Two Powerhouses
This is an analysis of the equivalent moves of two superpowers to secure the lower-end of the market, also known as the small-to-medium enterprise (SME) market segment. One is Microsoft Business Solutions (MBS), the other is UK-based the Sage Group.

EXAMPLE OF PROBLEM JUSTIFICATION: across the globe. For example, Axapta is the youngest of the MBS products, which despite the disadvantage of a nascent install base and brand recognition, comes with the benefits of more modern technology, while the software supports 20 languages and 32 preloaded currencies, and also adheres to local accounting standards and filing requirements (e.g., taxation and disclaimers), where applicable (for more info, see Microsoft Axapta: Design Factors Shape System Usage ). These capabilities, and MBS belief
