The Demise of Traditional ERP and the Rise of i-ERP in APEJ: Fact or Fiction?
By: Wong Yih Khai
This IDC Market Perspective provides a guide to the transitioning of traditional ERP to intelligent ERP in the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) region. Specifically, this document explores the challenges of traditional ERP and the characteristics that make an ERP "intelligent" and how organizations in the APEJ region will adopt intelligent applications as part of their business environment.
"i-ERP is still at an early stage of adoption, especially in APEJ. Organizations in this region are embarking on a digital transformation journey, primarily focusing on front-facing/customer-facing initiatives such as an omni-channel customer experience," says Yih-Khai Wong, senior market analyst, Enterprise Applications, IDC Asia/Pacific. "Over time, transformation will move to the back office and IDC expects intelligent applications or i-ERP to replace legacy traditional systems of records as organizations grow and depend a lot more on technology to give them a cutting edge over their competitors."
