The Benefits of Trading Partner Integration While Implementing or Upgrading Your ERP
This IDC Perspective provides insight into the benefits of integrating the supply chain during ERP implementation. Every year, manufacturers upgrade their ERP systems; trading partners are often not considered during this project, which results in more problems down the line. This IDC Perspective highlights the importance of a holistic view in integrating those partners into the system.
"IDC believes the incorporation of inter-business processes will continue to be an opportunity for improvement among manufacturers. Those companies that take a holistic view from the start of an ERP implementation/upgrade will save themselves a lot of time and effort down the line." — Reid Paquin, research director, IT Priorities and Strategies, IDC Manufacturing Insights
