Large corporations invested large sums of money into business systems
over the last twenty years. Mid-sized
companies have maintained their original systems, or have deployed separate software
packages along functional lines. For example, accounting software from one vendor,
a sales system from another, a purchasing system from a third, and a shop floor
control package from yet another.
Today’s businesses are faced with challenges not traditionally experienced
in the mid-markets. Global competition, use of the Internet to execute business,
changing management models, the pressure to reduce operating costs, and marketing
requirements of bringing products to market faster have forced companies to change
or become extinct. A common factor in this change is business process re-engineering,
implementing business software, and leveraging use of the Internet. However, adopting
these changes does not necessarily ensure success, as many companies have come to
discover. Re-engineering processes without company-wide context has not solved inefficient
and costly processes. Implementation of business software without clear requirements
and company-wide participation has fallen short of expectations. And uses of the
Internet have posed companies with highly complex problems of integrating new technologies
into their existing IT infrastructure.
