IT Organization from ERP Implementation Perspective
2.2 ERP Implementation Scenarios
Two scenarios can be considered in order to estimate the ERP support workload: a pessimistic one andan optimistic one.
2.2.1 The worst scenario
If an ERP implementation in a group of sister companies take too long there is the danger to overcomethe life cycle of the product, so only some companies in the group will benefit by the advantages of thenew ERP; the main target
creating a unique and global functional infrastructure
will not be reached.The above graph includes all costs per project: infrastructure cost, licenses cost, training, customization,travel, support, etc.If the first four implementations take too long, there is a high probability to cancel the other ones or topostpone them
which will dramatically change the scope of the ERP support in company IT.
