Question…… If you had to obtain open heart surgery, would you hire the best surgeon you could afford or the cheapest one you could find? If you are like most people, when it comes to your heart, you are going to hire the best surgeon you can afford. This same principle should apply to your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, because it is the heart of your organization. Now if you don’t think this is true, have your ERP system go down for a day or two and watch your business come to a grinding halt, even with business continuance policies and procedures defined. Why? Because your business partners are also expecting to receive computer generated information from your organization via electronic computer interfaces.
