From the Inside Flap:

While Enterprise Resource Planning has been a factor in manufacturing since the early 1990s, most other industries are just now stepping up to the ERP implementation challenge. An effective ERP backbone is often a prerequisite to achieving the benefits from the new e-business applications. Both types of applications need to be implemented in shorter time frames than were typical in the past.

E-Business and ERP outlines a new approach-and provides an innovative toolset-to understand and achieve a rapid implementation of ERP and e-business applications. From presenting a compelling case for making rapid implementation the preferred method, to providing guidance on the factors that must be present before an organization is ready to initiate a successful rapid implementation project, this timely book builds a formidable case for the viability and necessity of a fully operational rapid implementation scenario, including:
* Three different approaches for selecting effective, appropriate application packages
* Tools-called accelerators-that are necessary to support a rapid implementation approach
* Issues essential to supporting the IT aspects of these projects

In addition, E-Business and ERP covers the trends and changes in business and particularly, the packaged software industry that will have a decided impact on implementations for years to come, along with factors that are necessary before an organization can launch a successful rapid-implementation project.

E-Business and ERP explains how to select application systems and design the business processes needed in today's fast-moving e-business environment, and implement them in a third or less of the time that such projects have taken in the past. It is the first book to comprehensively explain the requirements of effective package-enabled process redesign, combine those requirements with the Internet-age necessities of rapid implementation, and provide proven strategies to accelerate package implementation-as well as methods for keeping the project focused on benefits and under control.

From the Back Cover:

Strategies for Cost-Effective E-Business ERP Implementation-in the Shortened Time Horizons of the Internet Age

The need for seamless Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and e-business implementation is nothing new. What is new is the shorter time frames that now dominate the organizational landscape. Projects that used to take years to complete must now be up and running in a matter of months or even weeks. Moreover, they must be done successfully-the first time.

E-Business and ERP is the first book to detail the many aspects of organizing an ERP or e-business project for rapid implementation. This comprehensive guidebook-produced by an experienced manager of rapid application implementation projects-explains how to:
* Rapidly implement systems that meet current requirements and are easily adaptable to encompass the next generation of technology
* Better understand and manage the risks associated with such projects
* Understand outsourcing alternatives and the use of application service alternatives

The potential returns from implementing new e-business ERP applications have skyrocketed. Let E-Business and ERP supply you with all the information you need to develop a core competency in rapid implementation of packaged business applications-and take the fullest profitable advantage of today's evolving e-business opportunities.
