Case Studies

Introduction
At a first glance, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems seem to be the silver bullet for every company’s problems. In one fell swoop, implementation of an ERP system offers a company the chance to re-engineer business processes, coordinate the systems of geographically dispersed locations, consolidate data, and empower users by giving them access to all the company’s data in real time. Of course, these opportunities come at a high price in terms of financial cost, implementation nightmares, and human issues. Often these implementations fail miserably as they run behind schedule and over budget; other times they are successful. Regardless of the outcome, each ERP implementation holds valuable lessons to be learned for companies considering their own
ERP implementation.
