Section 4.1 Discussion

So far, you learned about one of the criticisms of an ERP system: ERP systems drive all businesses to use the same business processes, thus eliminating competitive advantage. After you review these materials, post and respond to this topic on the course discussion board. Also, feel free to start your own related posts and respond to other students' posts.

If you were implementing an ERP system, in which cases would you be more inclined to modify the ERP to match your business processes? What are the drawbacks of doing this? Do some independent research to support your conclusions.
