    What a great discussion topic!
    But…what’s missing from this very incisive post?

    A deeper drill-down into the ongoing, chronic and ever-present root of ERP failure—a failure to adequately, quickly and robustly integrate ERP systems with other systems.

    We see this issue in our integration practice, and many of our partners focus on this specific area.

    Case in point: climbing out of the integration tar-pit (, one firm realized an 80% reduction in maintenance time and a 20% reduction in customer on-ramp time gains in productivity from their ERP system. Yes, we are a little integration-centric, but with potential impact like this, it’s no wonder.

    Holly, while it is true that integration between ERP and other systems is an issue, I do not believe it is a root cause of most ERP failures. Thanks for the comment and advertisement.
