With the current state of change in global events and the economy, organizations that take a business-driven approach to ERP maintenance and evolution can be better positioned to meet objectives than those who do not.
And having a roadmap that enables new technologies and new business models can lead to growth and competitive advantage in the face of fluctuating market conditions.
But what’s the best path to modernization? Should you replace existing systems or renovate them?
In this on-demand webinar, Rimini Street’s Scott Hays sits down with Duncan Jones, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester, to discuss topics including:
- innovating around the edges of your ERP
- modernizing with a variety of platforms rather than an omni suite replacement
- customizations and security
- considering both the IT perspective and the business perspective
