Another exciting year begins for ERP Market. After almost three years of self imposed isolation due to COVID, companies are cautiously optimistic and are starting to allocate IT Budgets, most of which will go to investment in implementation or upgrade of their ERP Systems.   But here is the catch. The last three years saw the explosion of technology in the form of AI, ML, RPA, Blockchain and many other technology advancements. Due to this the expectation of Businesses from ERP has undergone significant changes when it comes to ERP. The question that I hear from every customer is 'Wha ..read more

Yesterday I watched the movie 'Julie and Julia'. In that movie, the protagonist, Julie Powell, decides to complete all the 524 recipes from the book 'Mastering the Art of French Cooking' (written by the legendary cook Julia Child) and blog about it.  You can watch this movie on Netflix. Nice movie.  Watching the movie reminded me that I started this blog as a medium to pen my learning, successes, failures and frustrations as an ERP Consultant. When I work, I work a lot, about 11 to 13 hours on an average. I love my work and the challenges that I face.  I hope that you, my reader ..read more

The power of wishing...

 "Be very careful with what you wish for, because you will get it". So they say. Ever since I started believing it, things have started happening as per that. I had not flown in an aircraft till the time I was 37. Every time I looked at the sky, I wish I could fly one day, I said to myself. For the next ten years I have flown so much that I was considered as a 'Travel Expert' in my company. I accumulated over 200000 flying miles in Lufthansa and Air France combined. Take another example. I hadn't worked on ERP Product for over 7 years before I worked with Deepak NR of Sonata Software abou ..read more

The Great ERP Promise

I had posted this in ERPCommunity.com. Here is the link. https://erpcommunity.com/articles/the-great-erp-promise Here is the article.... As per various surveys done on ERP customers, 70% say that their implementation was a 'success' and only 30% say it is a failure. Gives a neat quaint picture, doesn't it? Only 30% failure, thinks a prospective customer. May be all those stories about 'ERP Failures' that I read about are wrong. Name one application that can be implemented without any glitches? Enterprise applications have their gestation period, right? Also they say ERP has become a commodit ..read more

 Recently Kurtis Lilford of Paapri Cloud Technologies interviewed me for a post in his company blog.  The article is titled The Operational Dream: Is ERP all it’s made out to be? Before the interview Kurtis Lilford had asked me a few questions like 'What is Cloud ERP', 'What are its advantages' etc. As a part of the Q&A he asked me about Cloud ERP Readiness and the common hesitations for companies to move to Cloud ERP.  That last question was very interesting.  The common hesitation that I have seen are two. One is hesitation to store sensitive company data in a third p ..read more

The confessions of a Cloud ERP Consultant....

I implement Cloud ERP for a living. I tell customers about how safe is Cloud and how it eases their operations. The key argument to prospects is that it makes your desktop thin by making applications and reports available on demand. But here is the problem. I still use the office applications installed on my desktop to create my documentation. I don't normally use Google Docs or Office 365. I still save my photos on my desktop. It is not the money. It is the mindset. I may be a cloud consultant. But I still want to save the documents on my desktop. Every fortnight, I want to save them in my ba ..read more

Approach ERP Implementation with a Vision, not as a Project.

 Recently Eric Kimberling had asked this question in LinkedIn. "If you put in the time to choosing the right vendor and implementation partner who has experience running transformation projects, can you count on them to run your project?" To this I had responded that "No. Their agenda is short term till the end of the project whereas the agenda of the customer is long term stabilization. There are many phases in any project where the agendas clash and it is always the customer who lose out." In the article (Link below) that I wrote for ERPCommunity.com, I expand on that theme. https ..read more

 https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6810372555896172545/ A couple of weeks ago, I faced a problem in a project that I am managing. In addition to being the PM, I am also the solution architect in this project. So I had to find a solution to this issue. I couldn't just 'Project Manage' it away. I spent about three to four days thinking about this problem. My normal experience is that the correct solution comes to my mind if I give it that much time. Like that 'Double Helix' thing. It did not in this case. I was frustrated. Since the problem was tough, I used my usua ..read more
