Flexible ERP Improving IT Efficiency for Enterprise
Today’s ERP systems give IT organizations the flexibility to adapt the system to their requirements. ERP solutions that run on a standards-based architecture can support multiple databases, operating systems, and hardware platforms. Such architecture makes it fast, efficient, and cost effective for IT organizations to deploy the ERP solution within their existing environments or modify their environments without extensive changes and customizations, improving IT efficiency. And additionally, solutions that support standard IT tools for troubleshooting, optimization, backup, and restoration allow IT administrators to use their familiar tools to safeguard the system and optimize its operation. Next generation ERP solutions that employ modern web-based architectures and web services and support wireless and mobile wireless devices give organizations the option of further improving efficiency by extending their internal systems to remote/mobile users, partners, and suppliers.
And hence with the help of replacing manual processes and siloed systems with a single ERP solution that spans multiple functional areas, locations, countries, or across the extended supply chain, organizations can achieve the following benefits such as reduce costs by streamlining routine operations. From an enterprise standpoint, an integrated ERP solution enables organizations to reduce costs by automating workflows to streamline tasks and remove information-sharing bottlenecks so employees can do their jobs in less time. Experts close to the industry opine that by taking advantage of an ERP’s automated and streamlined processes, best-in-class organizations achieved above average year-over-year reduction in operating costs. And accordingly, from an IT perspective, a flexible, customizable ERP solution reduces the total cost of ownership by allowing companies to make changes without the need to modify the system. A true next generation ERP architecture makes it easy to swap out databases, hardware, or operating systems without the need to revamp the ERP. Moreover, with a single integrated system, IT eliminates the need to manage multiple vendors or resellers. This is what is likely to fuel ERP growth globally as well as in India.
