What impact will trends such as Industry 4.0, cloud, and new IT technologies have on the development of the ERP landscape? There is still plenty of uncertainty, but one thing is sure: tremendous upheavals on the ERP landscapes of companies are on the way.
Especially Industry 4.0, the fourth Industrial Revolution, will transform the importance and role of ERP. However, Detecon sees the opportunities that ERP systems will continue to offer in their role as backbone and hub for the networking of systems, services, etc. in the course of digital transformation.
The development of ERP apps and cloud ERP is eroding monolithic ERP landscapes and their all-encompassing functionalities. Companies must respond faster than ever before to changes in market demands and the needs of their customers. Doing so requires more flexible processes and more dynamic IT support.
Generally speaking, every company is on the lookout for professional portfolio management of applications. Detecon begins by analyzing the existing system landscape, taking a hard look at its functionalities, licenses, and vendors. A single application is always regarded within the context of its life cycle and as a part of a portfolio of systems which logically belong together.
