Rapid Change Calls for Agile ERP
Business is moving faster than ever before. Innovation and disruptive business models appear at breakneck speed thanks to the power of Big Data analytics, the Internet of Things, machine learning, blockchain and artificial intelligence. New technology poses a test to the capacity of IT organizations and infrastructures. While CIOs readjust their focus to innovation discovery, strategy development and eliminating complexity from legacy systems, many question the ability of their ERP systems to cope with the pace of change.
Is your ERP system ready (and able) to take on the wave of digital change?
ERPs have slowly and steadily evolved from supply chain optimization to a platform for operational efficiency and business-wide insight. This approach may have worked well in the past, but the one-two punch of innovation speed has accelerated so much that ERP systems are now at a critical breaking point. Where business change called for new functionality every year or so, we now see a demand for continuous and agile change and innovation. That is what SAP S/4HANA Cloud delivers. Intelligent ERP, in the Cloud. We enable incremental modification to the ‘engine’ of your business, making it faster, easier and cheaper to consume.
