In a world of mobile and cloud, it is no surprise new data protection legislation would create a significant shift to data requirements across all industries. So how should a company adapt? Legacy systems must align to legislation but are complex to change. Can IT systems do all the work, or do the business processes […]

One of the most common cause of go-live issues is data. Data is not interesting or exciting, unless you get it wrong.

We believe […]

An integrated solution offering a 360 degree view over your organisation, and responding quickly to change.
In a previous blog post I talked about the fact that people hate change and that the sociology of change may not always be taken as seriously as it might be, but can cause workforce inertia.
Organisations invest money and resources when implementing or upgrading an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system.
As the UK economy hits a double-dip recession, more and more organisations are looking at ways to reduce costs and gain a competitive advantage against their rivals.

The first time I heard about the concept of the sociology of change in the workplace I was convinced that the lecturer presenting the topic had taken leave of his senses. Subsequently I have been able to apply his teaching to some of my workplaces and it has helped me understand the importance of getting […]
An Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution is an information system that supports business operations and aids in decision-making.
Businesses implement Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems because they want to have the ability to integrate otherwise disparate functions and business processes.
