As we reach the end of 2019, ERP software isn’t going away anytime soon. However, it continues to change on a daily basis with new emerging trends and technologies. Now we’ve entered the era of postmodern ERP, where platforms are now expected to meet the needs of not just your employees, but also your customers, suppliers, and partners.
So how can you make sure you’re selecting a platform that can meet these continually evolving requirements? Find out in a new Gartner postmodern ERP report.
“As organizations shift their focus from technology to outcomes and experiences, the need for a solid core of enterprise business capabilities is more critical than ever. CIOs can provide strategic leadership by adopting postmodern ERP strategies and preparing for the fourth era of ERP.”
Gartner first coined the term “ERP” in the early 1990s. However, it wasn’t long after that the first “ERP is dead” article appeared in the news. Regardless, the ERP software market continued to grow. Gartner predicted the ERP market growth rate from 2017 to 2018 at 10% — in the double digits. Now, Gartner forecasts that the ERP market will be worth $44 billion by 2022. This proves that ERP software is not a saturated, dying or static market.
According to Gartner, we’re in the fourth era of ERP – but what does that mean? Just as fashion has adapted and changed to the needs and customer desires of the day, ERP has morphed from material requirements planning (MRP) to Enterprise Business Capabilities (EBC).
In this report, you’ll find out the six pillars of the fourth era of ERP, the real reasons why 60% of ERP investments are seen as failures, how to avoid some of the top challenges of ERP implementations, and more. Gartner’s suggest roadmap for implementing postmodern ERP can help you prepare for a new model that’s something “more than ERP.”
