True Business Agility

In a rapidly changing world, agility is key. To exploit opportunities in full, it’s vital you give your people the right data at the right time, through systems that are easy to use. Best in class organizations are 83% more likely to have an ERP solution that can be quickly tailored to reflect business change. Find out the key factors in selecting flexible enterprise recourse planning (ERP), enterprise asset management (EAM) and enterprise service management (ESM) software in our webinar on June 9th.

Change is inevitable, and the ability to plan for the unknown is what will make it possible for the most agile companies to thrive. Long term planning is not about being able to predict every future, but to be able to respond fast enough and smartly enough to capitalize on change. Faster access to smarter data will allow you to make better business decisions and stay ahead of the competition. Aberdeen Group’s, Nick Castellina and IFS’s Antony Bourne will provide insights in how to select the most flexible enterprise software.
