Enterprise Change Management

change-managementRealization of benefits from ERP implementations depend on People, adoption rates and levels and Not Technology

Your ERP implementation is more than a technology initiative. Software alone does not deliver benefits – people do!

People fear change, and change management is essential to alleviating those fears. For a one-stop solution to ERP consulting, your organization needs a team with expertise in all three components of ERP success, including organizational change management.

Business Intelligence

BI Strategy

business-intelligenceThe Business Intelligence Strategy (BI Strategy) addresses the needs of the organization to “optimize organizational decision making.”

Business intelligence (BI) is a technology-driven process for analyzing data and presenting actionable information to help corporate executives, business managers and other end users make more informed business decisions.

A new ERP system will not provide your company with a clear BI strategy. It holds the data and may have provided you with the software tools and canned reports, but not the data mining required to draw complex MIS reports and the vital decision making tools required to grow your business.

Core Elements of Business Intelligence Strategy

  • Identification of the information needs
    •  Including key performance metrics
  • Defining how you want to view the business information
    • How will you look at information?
    • What are the dimensions of the data?
  • The selection of the technology to be used to support the BI plan
  • The BI Users
  • The BI development plan

ERP Optimization

OptmizationAn effective ERP system must support a company’s financial and operational processes. Often, the ERP system is relegated to serve as a financial reporting tool only and does not support management’s decision making process or the seamless integration with other functional areas. Such an ERP system is a prime candidate for improvement or optimization. TED believes that long term success lies in the execution of a continuous improvement program, such as ERP Optimization. We help our clients through the intricacies of initial implementation as well as post implementation optimization projects. Our consultants apply a structured methodology and have extensive experience with ERP vendors such as SAP, Microsoft and Oracle.

The need for Optimization: Why would your organization require an ERP improvement program?

  • Your organization has not fully recovered from the post go-live performance drag within six months of the initial rollout.
  • Streamlined business processes and anticipated productivity improvements remain elusive, while your organization struggles with informal processes and workarounds.
  • Low user acceptance because the ERP system is not meeting the immediate business needs.
  • Technical issues with software vendors are unresolved with no resolution in sight.

Our goal is to help organizations bridge the gap between business and IT. TED also offers additional service areas that can help your organization achieve its strategic and business goals.
