Using the heart of digitization as a basis for innovation and increased profitability

With the continuous integration of a holistic ERP landscape and agile process management, an intrinsic, contemporary transformation capability can be created in the company. The new development of technical possibilities in the ERP environment should be used by the business units as an opportunity to rethink existing processes and take them to the next level of innovation.

This means evolution in many process areas, but a revolution in particularly differentiating process areas. A well-planned ERP transformation is therefore always guided through the business with a focus on the company's goals, with IT acting as a source of impetus, knowledge carrier, and partner for the realization of technical innovation potential.

The ERP system as a hub for digital business models

In the course of the digitalization of business processes, more and more and larger amounts of data are created. At the same time, there is a growing need for companies to be able to act more efficiently, transparently, flexible and integrated. In its basic function, an ERP used to manage all necessary information about resources such as material, personnel, capacities or finances; however, the new challenges for an ERP lie in transforming this information into recommendations for action for the user, taking into account the current context (market situation, customer interaction, priorities, etc.) to support better, data-based decision-making.

Competing priorities and metrics of different business areas and processes need to be revised and finally subordinate themselves to the goal of "fulfilled customer expectations". Only by connecting and implementing strategic processes and associated capabilities across business units, can the associated ERP landscape deliver a value-enhancing contribution to improving market position and competitiveness.

An ERP system cannot be meaningfully viewed in isolation but is always dependent on an integrated interaction with its eco-system of applications to map the end-to-end processes. Finding the individually most adequate solution is one thing - building it up and increasing the degree of integration for optimized processes is another. In a technology-driven, necessary renewal of existing applications, the opportunity for strategic ERP transformation should be taken. Breaking up monolithic structures and establishing an ERP system as the core (digital core) can release enormous potential and create the right conditions for the continued competitiveness of a company. However, this often leads to disruptive changes throughout the company and requires appropriate change management.

The right strategy for ERP transformation

The definition of an ERP transformation roadmap is never done in isolation, and various influences must be taken into account. The business strategy and the efforts of a digital business transformation are the main focus. But also the current degree of integration through historically grown software and technology landscapes are decisive criteria for the conception of the individually correct strategy and the development of a sensibly implementable roadmap.
