What the Emergence of SaaS and Cloud ERP Technology Really Means for Your Organization . . . and Your Job

There’s no denying it: cloud technology is a game-changer in the ERP industry. Offering a reasonably priced deployment option in a sea of multi-billion dollar initiatives, cloud ERP means more organizations can benefit from the many efficiencies of enterprise software. Likewise, more companies open themselves up to the risk of poorly chosen, implemented and managed ERP software.

In this interactive 60-minute webinar, ERP expert Eric Kimberling, managing partner at Panorama Consulting Solutions, will cut through the marketing jargon and deliver the real scoop on the effects SaaS and Cloud ERP can (and likely will) have on your organization and your job.

Discussion topics include:

  • Overview of both on-premise and cloud / SaaS ERP options
  • Take-down of the marketing hype around cloud and SaaS ERP options
  • Specific challenges of cloud / SaaS ERP
  • Tips to find the right ERP solution

The webinar will also feature a Q&A.

Confessions of an SAP Expert Witness

There is no question that a properly installed SAP package can help a company transform and gain more value from its operations. But no company should invest in SAP without understanding the risks. Panorama consultants specialize in providing project assessments and expert witness testimony for failed SAP projects and are thus all too familiar with the missteps businesses can make in its implementation and usage.

This 60-minute webinar hosted by Eric Kimberling, managing partner of Panorama Consulting Solutions, will provide insight gleaned from his years “on the stand” providing expert opinion on SAP failures.

The webinar will cover the following with regards to SAP implementations:

  • Investing time in ERP software selection
  • Adequately managing project scope and cost
  • Creating realistic budget and implementation plans
  • Defining and testing business requirements and workflows
