Many organizations are near, at, or past the end of their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems supported life cycles. These organizations might be readily convinced of the need to upgrade and of the benefits associated with remaining on a supported version. Yet, moving to a supported version of an already existing system may not always be the best decision if that system is not future compatible.
For organizations that have opted to move to a supported version of their current ERP system, this article takes a look at the future of enterprise business applications and the requirements they will have to meet in order to be future compatible. Our objective is to help organizations determine whether or not the investment they are preparing to make will enable them to function in a world where global processing capabilities are the norm.
