Enterprise Application Advisory

Cloud applications come in multiple flavors and sometimes sound like alphabet soup (ERP, CRM, CPQ, PLM, iPaaS, SaaS, PaaS, etc.).  The industry or critical requirements determine the right solution for the organization.  Establishing the right platform to scale the business will impact the efficiency and effectiveness of the business model.  The stakes are high, and a poorly chosen and implemented solution will have negative implications for the success of the business.  

Adverse impacts include but are not limited to:

  • Inaccurate estimations 
  • Time-consuming proposals
  • Double and triple data entry 
  • Manual processes 
  • Product outages 
  • Ineffective accounting controls 
  • Mis-stated financial statements
