The latest ERP Trends

Technological developments are driving changes around the world again, bringing massive transformation.

Trends like business transformation (“disruption”) and Industry 4.0 are powered by the new possibilities arising from the internet of things, from cloud computing, from the high availability of mobile devices, from 3D printing and also from the new user habits in times of social media. The ever increasing computing power enables big data analytics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality or PowerBI.

In the opening talk of the ADV ERP conference led by Mag. Christoph Weiss, Mr. Manuel Möser highlighted the consequences of these trends on ERP.

As an example, the mega-trend of business transformation increases the speed of change. IT projects have to be implemented fast, providing highly flexible results – while having full integration in the customer’s enterprise applications architecture.
Microsoft solves this challenge with its intelligent business cloud Microsoft Dynamics 365. It integrates Office 365 with ERP and CRM as well as with BI/Analytics, PowerApps, Flow and Azure IoT, providing a flexible and powerful digital core.

Reacting on these mega-trends turns ERP project into innovation projects again.
Investing in a new ERP becomes a requirement and a fundamental part of the digital future of corporations:

  • Process optimization and increased efficiency
  • A step-up in transparency, new insights with extended analytics
  • IoT cases, product innovation
  • New business scenarios and business models

A call-to-action at the end of the talk triggered an intensive, interesting and exciting discussion – many thanks to all participants!
