Impacts and Recommendations

  • The adoption of postmodern ERP by Latin American CIOs is a major shift from existing traditional governance mechanisms, challenging and impacting the traditional organizational and hierarchical management philosophies and structures embedded in typical Latin American enterprises
  • Monolithic ERP is well-entrenched in Latin America, making it critical for CIOs to reduce enterprise inertia to adopt the agile federated and loosely coupled nature of postmodern ERP
  • Latin America lags behind the rest of the world in the availability, maturity and localization of global vendor offerings and associated services, forcing Latin American CIOs to investigate what is more closely available for a better regional fit
