Vendor Landscape: Enterprise ERP
It is no longer just about SAP or Oracle; large enterprises now have a variety of options.
View Vendor Shortlist
What is a shortlist?
A shortlist is a personalized list of vendors based on the criteria you define. Your shortlist offers more information about vendor's strengths, weaknesses, price-points, etc, and ranks them according to your needs.
What is a Value Score?
The Value Score indexes each vendor’s product offering and business strength relative to their price point. It does not indicate vendor ranking.
Vendors that score high offer more bang for the buck (e.g. features, usability, stability, etc.) than the average vendor, while the inverse is true for those that score lower.
Price-conscious enterprises may wish to give the Value Score more consideration than those who are more focused on specific vendor/product attributes.
- ERP provides standardization and automation to resource and financial manangement. The enterprise-level systems provide modules to support resource planning in every department.
- The cost and complexity of ERP makes achieving ROI impossible without clear goals and enterprise-wide support. Most organizations fail to standardize their processes and rely on costly customizations to match the ERP to the business needs.
- The vast number and type of modules that are available often leads to unused modules.
- Focus on the primary business pain that you need to solve, and match the need and vendor. All vendors in this landscape can support the basic financial planning and reporting that enterprises need to handle.
- These products will not fix any data quality or data access problems. That still requires forethought and governance; this cannot be automated.
- Evaluate the analytics as a primary requirement, not as an afterthought.
