ERP Roadmap: Sustainable Planning of the Use of Business Software

Ever faster changing market conditions, increasing competition and ever higher customer requirements demand more transparency, flexibility and speed from companies and their processes. In order to meet these requirements, companies must not only continue to optimize their business processes, but also use modern digital technologies to network them more closely. This applies both to internal processes and to the entire supply chain from the supplier to the customer.

In order not to get bogged down in the ever more complex network of processes and IT, an individual strategy – an IT or ERP roadmap – is needed to set the guidelines for the sustainable planning and further development of processes and IT.

Status Quo & Potentials

Which processes run how well? Where can you optimize? How well does the 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 software investments are useful? When is the right time for which project?

IT-Roadmap

Trovarit uses a well-founded methodology and powerful tools to create a reliable basis for the safe and efficient further development of the software infrastructure.

    Management Workshop

    Benefits & costs estimation, prioritisation

At the center of IT-Roadmap is a usage and potentials analysis. Management, users and IT answer these three central questions:

  • What influence do the business processes and functions have on the success of the company?
  • How mature are the company processes with regard to stability and contollability?
  • To what degree and how good does the existing software infrastructure support the execution of the business processes?

erp-roadmapStarting from the answers to there questions, the optimisation potentials and the fields of action are determined, consolidated and prioritised. Possible approaches to tackle the more relevant fields of action are developed and roughly assessed with regard to costs, benefits and bi-directional dependencies.

The result is a chronological and topical roadmap which includes all measures for the mid-term and long-term development of the business software infrastructure.under consideration of the existing software landscape. These measures can cover, 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
