Commercial ERP

  1. 1. The World in 2014 Commercial ERP Predictions From UNIT4
  2. 2. 1. Mobile and wireless culture Demand for enterprise-wide access to finance and business data on any device will increase and unlock knowledge, foster innovation and ultimately help with the bottom line
  3. 3. 2. The Internet of Things We believe that 2014 will see greater investment in the technologies that enable organisations to link data from multiple devices into a single system thereby ensuring that they have access to comprehensive data from all areas of their operations.
  4. 4. 3. Pure and simple cloud It is our belief that as they look to drive efficiency and cost savings through their choice of deployment, organisations in the commercial sectors will adopt a pure cloud approach when it comes to ERP and finance/business system deployment.
  5. 5. 4. Private sector shared services Successful private sector shared services will be those that maximise cost and efficiency benefits while adding services or products which differentiate their business and meet specific customer demands to protect their competitive position and open up new business.
  6. 6. 5. Intelligence and analytics Business intelligence and analytics solutions that integrate seamlessly with ERP or bestin-class systems to deliver comprehensive enterprise wide reporting and analysis capabilities to all internal and external stakeholders will be in demand.
  7. 7. 6. The changing face of ERP ERP will become more usable and more aligned to the applications people are used to using every day. Solutions tailored to defined user roles and user groups will attract more attention as companies look to do more with less.
  8. 8. 7. Rise of MOOCs and digital learning The private sector could gain from using MOOCs or digital learning methods to bridge IT the skills gaps. We believe this is especially relevant in growth areas such as analytics solutions, mobile development, big data and consumerisation of technology.
  9. 9. 8. Emphasis on risk management Software suppliers who are focused on satisfying customer needs and whose solutions work in today’s fast changing, uncertain world will be to the fore. Firms will seek to engage with more senior/executive personnel from the vendor or partner organisations as they progress through the selection, buying and implementation phases.
  10. 10. 9. Social time Organisations are recognising that they need to create collaborative, engaged communities that connect staff, customers, suppliers and partners and we believe that 2014 will see this trend expand. Investment will be in integration with business and financial solution.
