BilkentMBA2010, Lessons Learned, Week 1

The first week was an introduction to the ERP systems and some providers of them.
  • ERP systems are categorized into major ("best practice", less development expenses), smaller (simpler processes, niche software, lower price) and open source (free licensing, high security, accessible to community) ones.

  • BPR stands for business process re-engineering, which is done for improving processes.

  • Each SAP module has its experts, like FICO (finance and controlling), One consultant cannot be an expert of all modules. These consultants could be for implementation or for ongoing maintenance.
  • The concept of audit trail: anything you do in the system is tracked with your user-ID.
  • GIGO: Garbage in - garbage out.
