Will expensive, complex, hard to deploy legacy ERP applications finally expire and be replaced by less expensive, easy to use, nimble applications that live in the cloud? We invite you to find out.

The demise of ERP, Enterprise Resource Planning, has long been rumored as a new generation of cloud based applications and platforms have emerged in the marketplace. On premise ERP solutions dominated the landscape in an era of manufacturing, but now we live in a world changed by a services-based economy. The advent of "the Cloud” has raised the question again: Will this be the end of ERP as we knew it?

Traditional ERP is expensive, challenging to deploy, and often hard to use. New cloud offerings are purported to be nimble, easy to use, and much cheaper—often offering a low monthly fee as opposed to a huge capital expenditure. But if old ERP does die, what will really take its place? Will cloud applications be able to handle the complexity of financial, HR, and supply chain needs? Is pay as you go really cheaper? What about security? How will service outages handled?

Please join us for a dynamic and interactive evening as we hear from distinguished thought leaders on the potential death of ERP. We’ll explore whether the ERP’s death has been greatly exaggerated or if it’s real and what’s replacing it. (Mourning attire not required).
