Is Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central the right ERP platform for my business?


Selecting the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform can be a challenging and time-consuming process. With so many different options available, it can be difficult to determine which solution is the best fit for the company’s specific needs and budget. 

Without the right guidance, it can be easy to become overwhelmed by the various features and capabilities of different ERP platforms, making it difficult to make an informed decision. It is important for companies to carefully consider their business needs and evaluate their options in order to choose an ERP platform that will meet their needs and help drive business growth.

There are several common problems that you may encounter when determining the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform for your business:

  1. One common problem is gathering a full view of the business needs and requirements, which can make it difficult to choose an ERP platform. This is an expensive and time consuming process without the right set of tools and governance in place.
  2. ERP platforms can be complex to implement and difficult to support in the long-term, which can be a problem for companies with limited technical resources. This can lead to delays and additional costs during the implementation process.
  3. Some ERP platforms may not meet the specific needs of the company, which can be a problem if the company has unique business processes or regulatory requirements.
  4. Knowing early-on if an integration is possible with a company’s existing systems and processes, which can cause disruptions and additional work during the implementation process.
  5. Some ERP platforms are proprietary and require the company to use specific hardware and software, which can lead to vendor lock-in and limit the company’s flexibility in the future.
