CIOs: All Eyes are on You

An ERP consolidation is no picnic. And it’s certainly not fast. It can be long and complicated, with the potential for stakeholders to lose interest and abandon ship.

Add to that the severe lack of skilled ERP talent able to do the heavy lifting of integrating and decommissioning servers, wrangling all the application data on those servers, and solving system compatibility issues.

However, the juice — simplified technology, operational efficiencies, cost savings, and competitive advantages — is worth the squeeze of managing complexity, agility, and C-suite support.

So how can you pull it all off? Follow best practices for ERP consolidation so that you can provide incremental benefits. Delivering quick wins paves a smart path that maintains momentum and demonstrates value along the way.

 

How to Move Beyond Just Cost Savings

In its Four Drivers of a Successful ERP Consolidation report,1 Gartner® notes, “CIOs can consider the four drivers detailed in this research to present additional business value aspects of ERP instance consolidation, rather than having a conversation solely based on cost savings.”

At Rimini Street, we believe that by taking a practical approach and implementing Gartner’s findings given in the report, you could improve your company’s decision-making, automate data workflows and processes, gain flexibility, and deliver competitive advantages on your way to a technology consolidation victory.
