    Posted on 21-02-23 by Jack Woolsey

    With 2023 well and truly underway, what is hot and what is not, in the world of ERP?

    Huda Altaee specialises in recruiting mid to senior level roles within ERP systems.  Here she highlights the key ERP trends for 2023.


    5 ERP Trends:


    1.     IT Automation

    IT automation is the procedure of creating software and systems to replace repeatable processes and reduce manual intervention. It accelerates the delivery of IT infrastructure and applications by automating manual processes that previously require a human touch.

    Accessibility, value and viability for things such as RPA & BPA (Business Process Automation) have become more widespread than ever. Thus, resulting in an invaluable solution as it further leverages automation capabilities within ERP Systems.

    When these capabilities are integrated into an ERP solution, such as automation tools to complete repetitive tasks, this removes the tasks out of the hands of an employee, creating substantial benefits and allowing the individuals to shift their focus on more value adding tasks.

    2.     Project Management Tools

    Project management tools are vital and have become more popular within recent years. The process overall begins with competent project managers, which leads to successful projects and ends with satisfied clients and customers. By implementing or upgrading the current PM tools in place, this gives better data quality and allows better service through speed and customer-oriented decisions. It also allows more flexibility within the company and essentially gives an edge over competitors as the playing field is levelled, the way the company operates is the differentiating factor.

    3.     Artificial Intelligence (AI) 

    A deeply rooted trend in technology today is the use of artificial intelligence (AI), and its place in ERP solutions is no exception. Not only has it also become more accessible, there are many related technologies which allow for a seamless integration into ERP Systems, steering the primary focus to drive awareness and insights. Data from within the ERP system can initiate more informed decisions, by using AI-based tools, helping to identify red flags before they become an issues.

    4.     Advanced Integration

    The details and abilities surrounding advanced integration has allowed organisations to continue to identify point solutions to meet their company or industry needs. It has become a necessity to connect those solutions to the different ERP systems to be able to adapt as technology evolves. It is essential not only for the growth of ERP but also for business and key stakeholders to communicate with each other effectively. Thus, eliminating redundant tasks and fosters the ability to see the business through a single pane of glass. Overall, the efficiency of the system is valued as it supports the integral development each company faces.

    5.     Cloud Systems

    Upgrading to a Cloud system has become increasingly popular, although be it a perpetual trend, that was further fuelled by the pandemic. Many businesses continue their transition to primarily cloud-based solutions and ERP products, maximising cloud-optimised strategies.

    There needs to be constant growth within a company and that isn’t just in terms of recruitment, it’s the centralised system that is used and the different technologies and software’s available. By maximising and investing in all aspects of the company, you are guaranteed a tight ship that is less likely to sink due to external influences. If the pandemic taught us one thing, it is to always have a back up plan and alternative way of working so that it doesn’t all come to a halt.
