An ERP modernization is often thought of as a one-time investment, whose implementation will resolve all the integration, data, and usability challenges inherent in a portfolio of legacy applications. However, recent events have proven the need for enterprise capabilities that enable business agility and increase strategic resilience.
Organizations are shifting towards IT solutions that align with these objectives by taking a less monolithic approach and providing tools that support configuration over customization, continuous improvement, and rapid business process reengineering. This coincides with greater adoption of cloud applications, since they relieve much of the burden of constant software maintenance and disaster recovery planning.
Digital transformation leaders should also evaluate whether their IT is architected for features such as trusted and open data, process automation, interoperability, and extensibility. These are key to accelerating user adoption and maintaining your competitive edge because they allow you to keep pace with new digital technologies and evolving business models.
