World-class enterprise application solutions such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) have often been considered beyond the reach of midsize companies because of their complexity and cost. But the benefits these solutions deliver - integrated business processes, supply chain efficiency, greater financial oversight, improved customer service and better human capital management - apply as much to the midsize company as to large, global, multinational organizations.
The challenge, however, is to deliver these benefits in a different way that fits with the business culture and resource capabilities of midsize companies, yet complies with the good financial and business management that drives success.
IBM has partnered with SAP, Oracle, Lawson and other leading application vendors to address this challenge by developing industry-specific, prepackaged and preconfigured solutions. These solutions, based on industry best practices, contain the full functionality and deliver the same benefits as their mainstream parents, but are designed for lower cost and rapid implementation. They also require less support from business and technical specialists.

Finding it hard to choose?
Many midsize companies have their own specialized processes, which often makes it difficult to choose the right enterprise system. So IBM has developed an approach to help drive the selection process and provide an objective, consistent methodology in evaluating vendors and offerings. (See featured literature.)
Not only is IBM's approach to implementing enterprise systems well proven, but you'll benefit from the knowledge and experience we've gained while implementing similar application for other companies in your industry around the world. What's more, our solutions come with implementation plans, tested transactional flows, detailed documentation and processes based on industry-leading practices.
