Panorama Consulting Group, an independent enterprise resource planning (ERP) consulting firm in Denver, has announced a new survey to collect qualitative and quantitative data regarding corporate experiences with ERP implementation. Survey questions address the scope, cost, project structure, project duration and overall satisfaction of ERP implementations using Tier I, Tier II, software as a service (SaaS) and open source providers.
“Our 2008 survey showed that corporations often rated ERP implementations with Tier I and Tier II software unsatisfactory for reasons such as extended timeframes, budget overages and problems with organizational changes,” says Eric Kimberling, president of Panorama Consulting Group. “Over the past year, however, the market has shifted. Not only are companies looking for better results for less money and with less staff but SaaS and open source software are being heavily promoted as cost-effective alternatives to traditional ERP packages. As third-party consultants who help companies evaluate the risks and rewards of various ERP options, we are very interested to see if this new climate and these new offerings actually bring about a higher percentage of successful ERP implementations.”
The survey is available until October 31. Participants will receive a free copy of the study’s results and analysis when it is released in early 2010.
The 2008 survey results and analyses are available in our resource center.
