Strategies for Cost–Effective E–Business ERP Implementation–in the Shortened Time Horizons of the Internet Age

The need for seamless Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and e–business implementation is nothing new. What is new is the shorter time frames that now dominate the organizational landscape. Projects that used to take years to complete must now be up and running in a matter of months or even weeks. Moreover, they must be done successfully–the first time.

E–Business and ERP is the first book to detail the many aspects of organizing an ERP or e–business project for rapid implementation. This comprehensive guidebook–produced by an experienced manager of rapid application implementation projects–explains how to:

∗ Rapidly implement systems that meet current requirements and are easily adaptable to encompass the next generation of technology

∗ Better understand and manage the risks associated with such projects

∗ Understand outsourcing alternatives and the use of application service alternatives

The potential returns from implementing new e–business ERP applications have skyrocketed. Let E–Business and ERP supply you with all the information you need to develop a core competency in rapid implementation of packaged business applications–and take the fullest profitable advantage of today′s evolving e–business opportunities.
