Engaging in ERP has been gaining a lot of popularity over other business IT applications. It has been rather in demand in the recent years as more and more companies have decided to automate and integrate business operations, processes and data gathering. Companies have seen the potential of improving company processes and performance by integrating two or more or even perhaps all of its departments separately operated IT systems into just one system.
The decision to do this, of course, presents some questions and more decision to make regarding the migration to the new system. One big aspect they really have to look into is the issue of whether to do it through in house personnel or by hiring third party vendors. Most companies would end up going for the latter choice. And thats because of the lack of expertise of their IT people within the company.
In turn, more and more IT professionals and even IT firms have seen the demand on this area. Many have focused on providing such services to the companies who need them. In fact, most of these professionals undergo ERP training to better equip themselves for the job. These people are really experts in ERP systems.
On the part of the companies, many would also tend to train their personnel for the transformation and for the full implementation of their IT systems. This is because their own IT people would need to know an ample amount on operating their system and the end users has to know how to use their system too. With enough training they will be able to implement their ERP systems well and successfully.
