Among the greatest challenges and expenditures in business today is integrating a company’s critical corporate functions into a single enterprise resource planning (ERP) software system. As organizations increasingly turn to this technology to improve efficiency and sharpen their competitive edge, the need grows for employees skilled in ERP implementation and upgrades.
Enterprise Resource Planning professionals use industry management systems to take the processes and data from an entire organization and integrate it into a unified system. These highly-specialized professionals may have a variety of focuses including user experience, customer engagement, asset management, security, or big data. Qualified ERP professionals are in high demand. A career path for an ERP professional may be in finance, human resources, information technology, manufacturing, marketing, sales, or a number of other exciting industries.
