    It's an ERP book

    It's a good Book if you want to learn about ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) from the big software companies. I would have liked to read it before embarking on an ERP implementation. I am not a fan of ERP due to high expense, high implementation risk, solution lock in due to $, and potential reduced IT competitive advantage. This book describes ERP and topics around it well, if your Executive management got sold on the idea that and ERP can run your business better than the existing custom systems this is the book to read, it discusses the risks and potential rewards.
