Planning the Use of Business Software Sustainably

Ever faster changing market conditions, increasing competition and ever higher customer requirements demand ever more transparency, flexibility and speed from companies and their processes. In order to master these challenges, companies are usually rightly focusing on the continuous digitalisation of their business processes and thus also on the expansion and stronger networking of their business software.

In order not to get bogged down and lose track of the increasingly complex web of processes and IT, an individual strategy is needed – an IT roadmap – that sets the guidelines for the sustainable planning and further development of processes and IT.

 

Status Quo & Potentials

Which processes are running well and how? Where can optimisation be made? How well does the used software support the daily tasks?

Strategy

How should the company be further developed in the medium and long term? Which markets are to be developed?

Project Portfolio

Which investments in software solutions make sense? When should which project be tackled?

    Usage Analysis

    User survey, assessment by the management

    Analysis, consolidation

  • 4

    Management Workshop

    Benefits & costs estimation, prioritisation

At the center of the IT-Roadmap is a usage and potential analysis in which management, users and IT answer three central questions:

  • What influence do the business processes and functions have on the success of the company?
  • What is the maturity of the business processes in terms of stability and controllability?
  • To what extent and with what quality does the existing software infrastructure support the handling of business processes?

erp-roadmapBased on this information, optimisation potentials and fields of action are identified, consolidated and prioritised both for individual company divisions and for cross-sectional tasks. Approaches to solutions are developed for relevant fields of action and roughly evaluated in terms of benefits and costs as well as any interdependencies.

The result is a chronological and thematic classification of all measures for the medium to long-term further development of the business software infrastructure around the existing software landscape. Measures in the ERP roadmap can extend to, e.g.

  • procurement of additional software products (also modules, add-ons etc.)
  • replacement of individual developments by standard solutions
  • consolidation of the used solutions
  • streamlining and/or standardisation of business processes
  • consolidation of master data
  • training of employees
