As far back as 1999, a piece in Fortune magazine noted that large enterprises were scrambling to maintain, or build-out, their ERP systems. But because of rampant inadequacies, those larger companies were languishing: they needed more agile software to handle their accounting, manufacturing and supply chain need—to name just a few of the key processes intended for such platforms.
Then, the issue had more to do with investing in too many features that did little to enhance efficiences or profits. Over time, the tangle of ERP programs and customized applications sent those in-twined companies looking for better—and smaller—ERP systems.
“ERP was supposed to take them to new heights of efficiency by enabling them to move financial and other data speedily… But many ERP users, two-thirds of which are manufacturers, have found themselves in the position of the puzzled buyer of a new home with a problem. The big pipes bringing water have been put in, but the plumber forgot to install all the faucets, spigots, shower heads, and other fixtures that make the water (data) useful.”
