Enterprise Software for Competitive Advantage
When one is looking at the commissioning of enterprise software, they have to consider the wider implications rather than concentrating on one department. It is therefore not just a local issue but an issue that can affect the organization as a whole. The solutions have to be global rather than local in order to be effective. Although there is a need for specialization, it does not detract from the essentially effectiveness of interdepartmental learning.
It is important to consult with the main stakeholders in the company. Traditionally these groups have included the business partnerships, the client segment and the supply chains. These are the people who make the business successful and it is important that they are involved in the implementation of the enterprise software program.
