ERP Suites are of higher demand in the business industry. There are different ERP suites available from reputed vendors like SAP, RAMCO, FUTRUESOFT, etc. These suites are quite expensive when it comes to pricing. Also, they come enriched with wide array of features. Any ERP software solution requires proper implementation to help the users understand about the processes involved. Unless there is a proper planning on how to navigate the overall deployment of this Suite, the entire effort to introduce ERP into the Business process can go horribly wrong. Importance of proper systematic implantation process cannot be overruled by any means. Be it the consultants, vendors, or VARs, each have their own set of approaches when deploying the ERP Suite.
A look at the different ERP implementation procedures
Big Bang is basically an all-encompassing approach followed by mostly those who have shortage of time to deal with. This approach migrate every user of the system all together at the same time. In this approach, there is absolutely no need of operating a legacy system simultaneously along with the newly introduce ERP Suite during the transitional period. However, this implementation process does involve a higher chance of failure. Risk mainly lies in the fact EVERYTHING AT ONCE.
Rapid Implementation is perfect for those when an organization plans in installing one particular module of an ERP implementation suite faster in comparison to the other modules of the suite. Speaking paradoxically, the time requirement to implement one particular module properly can be less in comparison to the Big Bang approach. In the Rapid Implementation process, the entire project is divided into a series of valuable stages to produce important deliverables in a better way. This allows the client to benefit from some of the modules of the ERP periodically while the entire ERP rollout keep continuing.
This is the phased approach where the ERP system starts to roll out at every stage. Implementation happens module-wise, taking into consideration the most important module to start with. Accordingly, the progression happens through a series of logical stages. This implementation method can be time consuming but often considered to be most effective in making the system work. It helps in resolving all the issues associated with the first module before taking a move on. In this method, minimal organizational disruption can be experienced. Also, this method is often looked upon as a less risky option when implementing an ERP suite.
