ERP success rate, let us first look at these stories and articles, of course, here I declare what, these are references, I use color annotation:
1. Fox Myer's was once the largest U.S. drug distributor, with annual revenues of more than 5 billion U.S. dollars. In order to improve competitive position and maintain rapid growth, the company decided to adopt internationally popular enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. In fact, simply to say that this system is no contact within and outside the company's functional departments put together using computer software in order to make the product assembly and delivery more efficient.
Believing that the potential benefits of ERP systems, in a renowned system integrator with the help of the company became the early Escarameia ERP system applications are. However, by 1997, invested two and a half hours and 100 million U.S. dollars, the company achieved very satisfactory results, only 2.4% of the day be able to handle orders, and this goal means that the use of ancient times can also be achieved, Moreover, it is that something business has often met with information-processing problems. In the end, Mojo company to declare bankruptcy, only 80 million U.S. dollars to be acquired. Its hosted parties at home are still Star the ERP system vendor, the company attributed the bankruptcy for the introduction of the ERP system.
At present, in the world, ERP system, the application of results has been widely questioned. The system is consuming too much time to spend too much, but it did not meet its commitment to enhance competitive advantage and cost-cutting goals. In addition, statistics show that more than 70% of the ERP system applications, whether they are self-creation or professional system integration for the design of the Sewak, have not achieved the intended objectives of the company. One specializes in computer software and e-commerce market research agencies in the United States an annual turnover of more than 500 million U.S. dollars and uses the ERP system, the findings of the disclosure of companies, ERP system uses the cost exceeds the estimated cost of 178%, the installation time than expected and 230%, a loss rate after use has reached a surprising 59%.
However, these statistics hide the use of ERP systems, such as Myer and Dell experienced real, frightening story. After two years of exhausting effort and input in more than 200 million U.S. dollars, Dell has publicly announced the cancellation of its ERP system that uses the system more harm than good, would not be able to find a more effective re-integration of system solutions for the computer industry .
Despite a painful lesson, and now the world there are still 20000 companies invested more than 10 billion U.S. dollars with ERP systems. Some companies believe that the use of this system can streamline business processes; some companies want to solve the ERP system to the project for the company reorganization; also part of the company to consider the ERP will be the 21st century strategic weapon. Therefore, the ERP system, the success rate of almost zero, and some academic researchers believe that the company's organizational problems, and the system integration and technical personnel are convinced that the real reason is that companies do not make the necessary decisions to support the right ERP System .
2. The north by the company's ERP business administration, finance, human resources and information sector to implement the purpose is to facilitate the advance. In the ERP starts before the Chetak, Tison, who saw a newspaper published an article entitled "ERP success rate equal to zero," the article. At that time, they feel pressure, heart there is an indescribable confusion.
Is not just the media, under the assertion that, in the interview, I found that many companies have similar laments, which are further lamented being "realistic" proved - at least so far, and no one company claimed that, ERP it generated an astonishing growth in benefits, and "the successful implementation of ERP" just said, the original business can basically running on the ERP.
However, no one refused to ERP. In fact, ERP for more of the enterprises, not so much a management change, as it is thought reform, institutional change, especially in hardship for many struggling to find a breakthrough in state-owned enterprises, the nature of its implementation of the ERP is not the meaning is to obtain generous benefits, but to change anything, with a view to "keeping fit", was in a cruel, fierce competitive environment in the capital to survive.
Northern's summary of its "successful implementation of ERP" experience: First, the leadership of great importance; second, full participation; 3 is a good project management. Most of the more successful the implementation of ERP companies jointly have learned is that the leadership of attention, so I firmly believe that this is not a subordinate not to mention the jargon. Later, I completely understand, ERP can not do without "leadership."
ERP has been considered to be "number one project", there is no "top leaders" personally, the implementation of ERP business can only be two outcomes: either ran aground, failures, or aliasing, distortion. Can be seen, ERP is one who is also "can not do off line" system engineering, is a must be "in charge" was coordinated by the "difficult work" is a game of chess, is an overall situation. Therefore, ERP for an enterprise is bound to be a "historic" event, if not the height of the enterprise to implement ERP failed to do well prepared. The "high" need "top leaders" to take hold.
For the ERP of the North's attitude is, in principle, try not to change the software, because "it is, after all, has its own logic, representing a sort of advanced management ideas." Expressed this attitude to a certain extent the North's affirmation of the value of ERP. The popular argument is that the ERP does not necessarily solve the problem, however, the ERP may not be able to solve all the problems, so the North has no intention of ERP is too demanding - for example, Star recognized that, "ERP enterprise systems solved the problem of poor integration, which the North company, is a not a small gain."
