To survive, thrive and beat the competition in
today’s brutally competitive world one had to manage the future.
Managing the future means managing the information. In order to
manage the information, in order to deliver high quality
information to the decision makers at the right time, in order to
automate the process of data collection, collation and refinement,
organizations have to make Information Technology an ally and
should harness its full potential and use it in the best way
Almost all organizations are turning to some
sort of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) package as a solution
to their information management problems. ERP packages if chosen
correctly, implemented judiciously and used efficiently will raise
the productivity and profits of companies dramatically. But many a
company fails in this because of wrong product, incompetent and
haphazard implementation and inefficient or ineffective usage.
This book is about Enterprise Resource Planning
(ERP)—its evolution, implementation, and advantages. The book
gives a comprehensive treatment of ERP, the ERP market and the
different ERP modules. The book also explains the major components—business
modules—of an ERP system. The book gives an overview of the
major players of the ERP market. The future trends in ERP are also
covered in the book. The book includes ERP FAQs, ERP glossary and
ERP case studies. This is an ideal book for people who want an
introduction to ERP.
