As a business leader you’re likely to be considering your options for next technology steps to ensure your business maintains competitive advantage with the right tools to grow. Your organisation may have implemented SAP several years ago not only for its brand and reputation, but also for its well-structured information system architecture providing efficiency and effectiveness to your business processes.
And while staying with your existing system could be seen as a ‘safe’ option, it could create the potential for missed opportunities to streamline, grow or make savings. Although staying with SAP will inevitably require you to upgrade and transition to a newer platform, moving to another vendor could create uncertainty over cost, capability and quality.
How can business leaders justify their technology investment decisions without concrete evidence, ROI analysis and value management?
Showcase the value of existing and future SAP investments with fact-based evidence
Your existing solution may not have delivered expected benefits, or maybe your users are not fully leveraging all of its capabilities. You may be also considering which future SAP projects to prioritise to deliver real value to your organisation.
Learning from the past with fact-based data can deliver the answers to these questions and more. With confidence you can strategically prioritise your investments by understanding what the current contribution of SAP is to your business.
Performer is the latest tool from SOA People that can quickly identify, justify and factually govern your SAP investments, helping you to generate more value for your business.
