Enterprises with multiple ERPs may want to pursue consolidation to gain technology standardization and deliver cost savings. CIOs considering this should undertake a strategic approach and employ ERP consolidation best practices to achieve greater organizational success than IT cost savings alone. In this research report, Gartner discusses key findings around ERP consolidation and provides four recommendations for CIOs to attain higher-order benefits for the enterprise, both at the completion of the consolidation and beyond. Our key learnings: A single large ERP solution with standard functionality will likely not meet all of your organization’s requirements. ERP consolidation efforts can too often focus on technical simplification. A better approach maintains enterprise value, gains flexibility, and delivers both standardization and competitive advantages. An ERP consolidation effort focused exclusively on cost savings will often overlook opportunities to identify and track transformational benefits that are not cost-related. A composable approach to ERP consolidation facilitates common solutions for common functional requirements across the enterprise, while also driving greater efficiency and cost savings within the operating structure.
