DESKFLIX SEASON SIX - ERP
ERP systems are the classic back office enterprise solution. Unchanging, uncomplaining, quietly managing financial and supply chain data and only of concern to the technicians that manage them – and the CFO who has to stump up for the occasional (and invariably large) upgrade or maintenance bill, right?
Wrong. While stability, security and reliability are still of paramount importance, ERP systems are now extensible, modular, cloud-ready and dynamic. The days in which ERP was the business of experienced administrators (and expensive consultants and SIs) are fast receding. These days the name of the game is self-service, with line of business departments able to build or integrate their own or third-party apps on top of their ERP.
Of course a supertanker like ERP does not change course overnight and modernisation is likely a multi-stage process that requires careful planning. Join us for Deskflix ERP for a lively discussion about how ERP is changing and what you need to know to take advantage.

In this keynote our industry expert will be discussing the core factors that enabled a successful implementation, the obstacles they faced, and their top tips for ensuring best practice for the present and the future.
