SAP ERP

If business and financial consolidation is a problem for any organization, SAP would work very well to bring in consistency in processes and transparency in financials. The solution works well if the customization is kept to a minimal level and industry standard business processes are followed in an organization

The cost of SAP as an ERP is quite high and the switching costs associated with ERP systems are even higher. That being said moving from one ERP to another only happens once in a great while for large organizations. Those switching costs include retraining, IT hardware requirements, outside consultants and more
