In order to gain competitive advantage against fast growing competitors, multinational companies move more and more of their operations to low cost countries. On the other hand, their capital advantage as well organisational and process maturity enhance their competitive edge. In addition, technology can boost their competitiveness due to process or work automation.

Actually, the architecture of the global ERP environment can either consolidate a company or break it into siloes, it can support the implementation of the best practices and process excellence or hinder them.

Or maybe, does your system’s architecture meet the challenges which your company used to encounter in the past when it was much smaller and not so internationally dispersed as presently?
