The ERP implementation in India demanded more than the custom erp India module. There was demand only for top notch services and professionals. manufacturers and endusers. It was well evident that ERP market could boom and give the necessary impetus to stakeholders. However this did not mean that mediocre could survive in the market. They must have been working with different requirements till then. This naturally led to improvement in the quality of services offered. As discussed earlier ERP was initially restricted to back office functions and later spread its wings to all the operations in the enterprise. This problem in itself helped to get another important solution. This was not only the case in India but else elsewhere in the globe. The ERP experts will definitely be able to restructure the ERP systems with the help of resources and expertise available with them. Firstly this paved way for more prospects in ERP market. The end user was getting assured that he would be receiving the best services for the money invested. This naturally meant that the ERP manufacturers and vendors had to increase the functionalities and scope of the application. Compelling them to suddenly change will land things in a mess because there will be lot of confusions for the vendors. .How did ERP penetrate on a vast scale in India? The Y2K problem and other diminishing opportunities of IT professionals were seen as a big challenge to the IT market. Sudden change Firstly they are bound to increase the scope of ERP in enterprise operations. The slump of the IT sector would add drudgery and smash the hopes of so many individuals and companies. Such an improvement increased the competition among various players. The unrealistic deadlines and time pressures further add agony to this menace. However doing it all on sudden is a difficult task. Case ERP in India got more and more competitive. Once this got stabilized there was no looking back. This proved to be a biggest challenge to the nation who were banking (and are still) on IT skills for development aspects (individual. economical and overall). The demand and supply gradually transformed from general to enterprise resource market. There are practical difficulties when it comes to this issue.

However it would be next only to impossible to change even before the current change has stabilized in the market. No doubt change is inevitable and an element for growth. They can decide to stick on to change but it will cost them heavily.Technical factors Secondly ERP in the nation calls for a restructuring in the technical aspects. Some bigger companies still hesitate to invest in ERP due to the exorbitant costs. This is definitely appreciable. It is indeed encouraging to find that a vast majority of them have realized its benefits and have determined to go for it. penetration in terms of sectors like education. The effectiveness of the replacement is an important issue.But when it comes to companies that already run successful ERP systems they have to stick on to the technical changes or ship out from the market. This is advantageous for the companies that go for ERP at the first instance . However some of them are keeping quiet due to the risks involved besides the unforeseen expenses and losses. scope and applicability in terms of opportunities and venues. Finance This is another important determinant of ERP market in India. The fate of the businesses that have already implemented and deployed ERP remains a big question mark. They can work on to find some replacement technology rather than going for an all round change. . However India has got a long way to go when it comes to Improving ERP in terms of technology. Conclusion The ERP market in India is definitely promising. employment and the state run offices.

The major challenges of an ERP implementation for an organization are: Selection of ERP software: This is a very critical decision that an organization needs to take.resources and work shall be taken into consideration and plan shall be laid down for it. nature of business and investment figure It shall have aggressive schedule and proven path for implementation.

So erp implementation can be divided into parts like different departments and they can be integrated at the later stage . Taking a time more than a year takes its seriousness and positive feeling of getting changed for for better business away and leads no where. During implementation of erp time.ERP implementation is always a tough job for the organizations. geographical spread. To get successful implementation organizations need to be very careful.This gives the advantage of seeing the results in one department and hence resources can be effectively utilized by the next departments. After finalizing the enterprise software they start the implementation and finally adopt the ERP system as an organization wide solution. Temporary Change in the business shall not effect the implementation of erp and its software. evaluation of various ERP software to suite its business process. When SMEs think about ERP implementation. they identify the need of an ERP system. However it is vital to consider the size of the business operations. the projected growth in the years to come.
