In an effort to become more flexible and competitive, companies are migrating from legacy systems to integrated business management package software products. These products represent the future for companies that need to streamline their business processes and improve the sharing of information in order to compete in the rapidly evolving business world. Yet adopting a package software solution is not a process to be taken lightly, and this critical change can represent a tremendous investment of time and resources. Most corporate officers charged with purchasing package software products are not experienced buyers, and there is very little information available to guide you through this process. Enterprise-Wide Software Solutions is the thorough tutorial and lasting reference you need to help you implement, use, and manage these powerful tools. This book provides a basis for planning and managing expectations among all relevant groups--corporate management, information technology staff, users, outside consultants, and the software vendor. Companies are investing significant amounts of money and time to implement business package solutions.
This book helps you reduce these costs and hours to more reasonable levels. Crucial topics--budgeting, project team organization, cost-justification, customization, outsourcing, reengineering, testing, training, and more--are covered in detail, allowing you to concentrate on the selection process, implementation strategy, and package software product that is best for your company. 0201309718B04062001
