The Challenges of ERP Digital Transformation

Oracle has been talking to CIOs at large companies in various industries about the challenges of ERP transformation.

These include:

  • Strategic Value: asserting the ERP transformation's important to their company's performance, strategy and business cases.
  • Implementation: understanding which part/s of the business should own the project and be responsible for rolling it out.
  • Pace of change: ensuring you transform at the right speed to keep up in a disrupted market.
  • Innovation: gauging how technologically innovative you'd like your ERP transformation to be.
  • Risk: assessing the risks being taken by IT and the board, how to mitigate them, and whether they're outweighed by the benefits.
  • Scale and coverage: confirming whether to move all ERP systems to the cloud, or be more gradual and keep some on company premises.

You might be burdened by legacy systems that are no longer fit to use, causing inefficiencies that hold your business back in a fast-moving environment. Oracle understands, and can help you make the first moves in a complex but worthwhile transformation journey.

Preparing for a new ERP era

The sheer number of technological and business processes, and organisational decisions at the start of an ERP transformation can feel overwhelming − even for the most experienced CIO. When transforming creaking and inefficient legacy ERP systems, early decisions on the project will often be among the most important ones. These decisions will likely include how to mitigate risks during the ERP transformation, deciding which business processes should move first to the new system, and getting budget sign off.

Scaling your transformation

When your current ERP can't support your growth or allow you to be agile, it's time to turn to the cloud. Yet, it is a challenge to ensure the whole business understands the value of ERP transformation. To remedy this, CIOs can pinpoint specific problems and project the benefits cloud could bring - all while thinking broadly enough to answer everyone's needs and enable total transformation later.
