ERP is Table Stakes

While tech headlines tend to focus on the shinier topics—AI, automation, the metaverse—ERP remains a foundational concern for companies worldwide. Adapting to changes in how ERP is defined, connected to other solutions, secured in today’s highly digital environment, and supported on a hybrid platform will be critical to enabling the business to thrive and grow.

Gartner® research suggests:

“By 2024, at least 50% of existing ERP megavendor clients will evaluate multiple vendors rather than automatically adopting the latest versions of incumbent ERP suites.”[1]

“In the composable ERP era, profound changes will be required within organizations — therefore, CIOs must develop different mindsets to support those.”[2]

Bi-modal approach to composable ERP enables a self-directed IT roadmap

ACM is using a composable ERP approach to ensure that resources are channeled toward what it does best — producing quality products for customers — not, as CIO Erik Looi explains “building a big team of developers or support engineers, when I can get that externally.” ACM’s philosophy is reflected in its bimodal IT strategy. Mode 1 is focused on ensuring a stable foundation to keep core systems and processes running. Mode 2 is oriented toward innovation and exploration.
