Open Source ERP transforms ROI

Enterprise Resource Planning systems share three main characteristics:

  • They are multi-functional, spanning a range of business activities
  • They are integrated, so that functions communicate with one another and share underlying data
  • They are modular, allowing selected elements to be implemented and the progressive adoption of additional modules

 

The Business Case

The majority of large and medium-to-large organisations have already adopted or have plans to adopt an ERP system. This is not surprising, as most organisations can expect a Return on Investment (ROI) of between 100% and 400% from ERP projects, making them strong candidates compared with most other initiatives. However, ERP systems have frequently proved difficult to implement and invariably require significant investment, even though potential returns are high. It is important to recognise and manage the risks involved by controlling costs and maximising the probability of success.
 

Proprietary v Open Source

Vendors such as SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft and Microsoft have tended to dominate the market for ERP systems. However, the costs associated with the implementation of these systems have frequently far exceeded expectations and in many cases have outstripped the return. In a survey conducted by Nucleus Research, only 46% of SAP adopters achieved a positive ROI with an average payback period of 46 months.
 
 

Open Source solutions can dramatically reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of an ERP system, typically by as much as one third, whilst achieving at least the same benefits. 

With zero licence fees and no obligation for expensive, annual support contracts, an Open Source approach significantly reconfigures the cost profile of ERP implementation. To read the interesting facts and benefits further you can download the full article Read More

Cost effective open source Enterprise Content Management solutions that maximise ROI

Commercial enterprises and government agencies face significant challenges as they strive to meet a rapidly growing need to manage thousands, sometimes millions, of documents generated throughout the normal course of business operations -- all the while increasing end-user productivity and lowering IT costs. As your organisation’s digital information continues to grow geometrically, 1Tech’s uniquely tailored solutions will help you harness the power of your content. Enterprise Content Management Solutions by 1Tech provide end-users with the tools and access they need to innovate and propagate faster in ways that greatly benefit IT departments. 1Tech’s deep experience with open source enterprise content management, document management and records management solutions across multiple vertical markets improves productivity and the bottom line.

 

For many organisations, traditional approaches to enterprise content management centre on software applications from proprietary vendors that are expensive, difficult to deploy and costly to maintain. Moreover, most of today’s legacy content management systems were built prior to the development of the institutional IT infrastructure components and standards that we now take for granted. Shared network drives are sometimes used to manage enterprise documents and content, but this approach can quickly grow out of control. In short, the lack of document management facility and efficiency in most organisations often leads to miscommunication, lost information, and disorganised or inefficient workflow—all of which result in project delays, wasted time and redundant effort, not to mention frustrated employees, partners and customers.
