How ERP Systems Keep Pace with Innovation
An ERP system is the heart of any manufacturing business. It needs to be able to track and manage all the moving parts of their business. Every department needs to communicate and be connected to one another. As a business scale their operations and increases the diverse types of technology they adopt, the ERP system needs to scale with their business needs and be able to keep all technologies connected.
Here are some ways ERP systems have evolved to keep pace with innovation:
- Cloud: Cloud offers scalability and flexibility. Many companies are moving their data, assets, and workloads to the cloud. They are also adopting cloud-based ERP systems as well, keeping pace as an organization scales.
- Data Integrations: ERP functions as a central hub for a business to collect data, analyze it, and then make informed decisions to help improve operations based on what that data is telling.
- SaaS: Software as a Service (SaaS) allows software to be accessed from any device. ERP systems that function as SaaS systems are great for remote workforces or multiple operations.
- Scalability: As operations expand, whether geographically or numerically, disruptions in the supply chain can really impact their business. ERP systems need to be robust enough to manage the industry at scale. This means anticipating and reacting to disruptions and business needs.
ERP systems need to be able to keep up with the speed of industry and innovation for a business to have success. Running outdated or legacy ERP systems can harm a business in multiple ways.
