Maintaining IT Integrity During ERP Integration
Maximising corporate assets and legacy investments has become a key focus for treasurers, and one of the biggest steps in this process is choosing an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. While ERP technologies have been around for some time, the newest generation of systems are based on host-to-host integration technologies. The new technology promises better efficiency and easier implementation, but it also introduces a whole new set of challenges.
This Citi article draws attention to the potential costs of poor integration, which can be significant if best practices and best-in-class solutions are not used. One of the greatest concerns is allowing software behind a corporate’s firewall, and how maintenance of such software can cause ongoing security problems.
This article discusses:
- Maintaining data integrity throughout integration
- The benefits of a standardised solution that keeps you bank-neutral
- Finding a solution your own IT department can implement and manage
