CIOTech Outlook >> Magazine >> March - 2014 issue

When a business runs at a small scale with small number of people and few defined processes, it is easier for managers to organize, control and track things. But as the business starts wearing bigger shoes to grab their foothold into new horizons, there is an upsurge in the number of employees, activities, workflows, procedures, and processes that are countless. With ever increasing ambitions of businesses to make their shadow fall on expanded geographies and customers, this kind of incoherent and not so integrated system brings down the productivity and profitability and adversely affects growth. Implementing an effective ERP solution could help businesses streamline variety of processes, log them and track them without any time or place constraints.

Few giant ERP providers rule the market. But not to ignore other emerging players who are coming up with competitive and innovative ERP solutions that may change the game. They are betting high on  certain emerging trends that might add up to the power of ERP in the coming future with solutions  like Cloud ERP, Tally integrated ERP, Social ERP, Mobility and others.
