(1.) Detail - Technical & Product Development.

To achieve clarity and transparency, best-run businesses are using SAP solutions to help
close the gap between strategy and execution – optimizing the performance of the
business as well as the business network. SAP solutions, along with services and a wealth
of extended value from the SAP customer-focused ecosystem, help customers become
clear enterprises by providing insight for improved performance, efficiency for optimized
operations, and flexibility to quickly adapt to changing circumstances.

With broader insight, improved efficiency, and greater flexibility, companies can become
more:

• Transparent and accountable


• Lean and agile
• Customer centric and collaborative

The clarity provided by the SAP portfolio and the ecosystem can help companies
preserve profitability by addressing challenges such as cash management, risk mitigation,
customer loyalty, streamlining of operations, sustainability, and talent management.

Product development:

At a time when customers are increasingly influencing the design and delivery of
products and services, as well as business models, SAP solutions can help you capture
innovative customer demands and ideas and embed them into new products and services.

To help you deliver innovative products with high-quality, precision, and speed, SAP
-ERP gives you greater insight and visibility across the organization to ensure operational
efficiency, effectiveness, and flexibility.
As a result, you are better equipped to foster the development of innovative new
products, collaborate with partners to shorten the time required to realize profits, and
deliver safe products. No matter the industry or size of your business, you can implement
only the software you need to solve your unique business challenges in your own time
and without expensive upgrades.

By enlisting the help of SAP Services before, during, and after any implementation, you
can optimize your IT investments. And with SAP Enterprise Support i.e. ERP,
companies take full advantage of the integration of SAP and non-SAP solutions,
minimize risk, enable the acceleration of innovation, and address application life-cycle
management.

 Integration
Integration can be the highest benefit of them all. The only real project aim for
implementing ERP is reducing data redudancy and redudant data entry. If this is
set as a goal, to automate inventory posting to G/L, then it might be a successful
project. Those companies where integration is not so important or even
dangerous, tend to have a hard time with ERP. ERP does not improve the
individual efficiency of users, so if they expect it, it will be a big disappointment.
 Efficiency
Generally, ERP software focuses on integration and tend to not care about the
daily needs of people. I think individual efficiency can suffer by implementing
ERP. the big question with ERP is whether the benefit of integration and
cooperation can make up for the loss in personal efficiency or not.
 Cost-reduction.
It reduces cost only if the company took accounting and reporting seriously even
before implementation and had put a lot of manual effort in it. If they didn't care
about it, if they just did some simple accounting to fill mandatory statements and
if internal reporting did not exists of has not been fincancially-oriented, then no
cost is reduced.
 Accuracy
No. People are accurate, not software. What ERP does is makes the lives of
inaccurate people or organization a complete hell and maybe forces them to be
accurate (which means hiring more people or distributing work better), or it falls.
(5.) Disadvantages:

Many problems organizations have with ERP systems are due to inadequate investment
in ongoing training for involved personnel, including those implementing and testing
changes, as well as a lack of corporate policy protecting the integrity of the data in the
ERP systems and how it is used.

 Expensive

This entails software, hardware, implementation, consultants, training, etc. Or you


can hire a programmer or two as an employee and only buy business consulting from
an outside source, do all customization and end-user training inside. That can be cost-
effective

 Not Very Flexible.

It depends. SAP can be configured to almost anything. In Navision one can


develop almost anything in days. Other software may not be flexible.

• Personnel turnover

Companies can employ new managers lacking education in the company's ERP
system, proposing changes in business practices that are out of synchronization with
the best utilization of the company's selected ERP.

• Customization of the ERP software is limited. Some customization may involve


changing of the ERP software structure which is usually not allowed.
• Re-engineering of business processes to fit the "industry standard" prescribed by
the ERP system may lead to a loss of competitive advantage.
• ERP systems can be very expensive to install often ranging from 30,000 to
500,000,000 for multinational companies.
• ERP vendors can charge sums of money for annual license renewal that is
unrelated to the size of the company using the ERP or its profitability.
• Technical support personnel often give replies to callers that are inappropriate for
the caller's corporate structure. Computer security concerns arise, for example
when telling a non-programmer how to change a database on the fly, at a
company that requires an audit trail of changes so as to meet some regulatory
standards.
• ERPs are often seen as too rigid and too difficult to adapt to the specific workflow
and business process of some companies—this is cited as one of the main causes
of their failure.
• Systems can be difficult to use.
• Systems are too restrictive and do not allow much flexibility in implementation
and usage.
• The system can suffer from the "weakest link" problem—an inefficiency in one
department or at one of the partners may affect other participants.
• Many of the integrated links need high accuracy in other applications to work
effectively. A company can achieve minimum standards, then over time "dirty
data" will reduce the reliability of some applications.
• Once a system is established, switching costs are very high for any one of the
partners (reducing flexibility and strategic control at the corporate level).
• The blurring of company boundaries can cause problems in accountability, lines
of responsibility, and employee morale.
• Resistance in sharing sensitive internal information between departments can
reduce the effectiveness of the software.
• There are frequent compatibility problems with the various legacy systems of the
partners.
• The system may be over-engineered relative to the actual needs of the customer.
