ERP System Crash – System Compatibility – Root Cause # 2

SYSTEM COMPATIBILTY

If your ERP system was not compatible with current technology, how much more difficult would it be to find appropriate hardware and software components and expertise to assist you in getting it back up and running? Would you be limiting your options?

How compatible is your current hardware and software with existing technology and standards? Maybe there are certain system components that fall into this category.

This can be very important when third party developers are creating tools for other, more current ERP systems and have ceased to develop for your system or version.

Is your system built on outdated technology, proprietary or on a non standard hardware and / or software platform?

If this is the case, then you can’t take advantage of the same tools and functionality that your competitors can.

Perhaps this would be another opportunity to discuss a new ERP system or upgrading to a current version?
