Postmodern ERP

A New Day, a New Way in ERP

Is your ERP strategy evolving? From early best-of-breed approaches designed to boost functionality for core business processes to the mega-suite, with every level of administration and operational processes integrated into a single solution, different ERP structures have their advantages. And now there’s a fresh take. With the rise of the cloud and agile solutions for core business processes, enterprise CIOs are turning to a new strategy: Postmodern ERP to drive value for their business.

Gartner introduced the concept of Postmodern ERP in 2014 in response to companies that have been outsourcing and integrating SaaS solutions with legacy onsite ERP systems. For enterprises that are not yet ready to replace their entire ERP system, but recognize the need to augment core administrative processes to keep up with the world of rapidly evolving cloud technology, Postmodern ERP is the answer. And Coupa is a great place to start.
