Software-driven transformations – vision and reality
Large SAP customers are running a variety of process and system landscapes with numerous ERP systems. Transformation and innovation projects, critical for success in todays world, are focused on digitization, new business models and platforms, future IT landscape and SAP applications.
Transformations don’t normally fail due to someone’s lack of vision. The reality is that these types of transformations are complex, and can often be unpredictable, risky, and seem endless. Setting concrete goals that are achievable is indeed complicated. When projects such as this fail, it is most often due to a lack of technical feasibility, functional detail, and the overall lengthy path that’s required to achieve global implementation. From a business perspective, projects may also struggle when the effort, cost, and duration of the project seem to outweigh the overall benefits.
