This year’s InformationWeek Analytics/Intelligent Enterprise 2010 Enterprise Applications Survey finds that many enterprises aren’t happy with conventional enterprise applications. But the alternatives aren’t wowing them either.
ERP, CRM and supply-chain management systems are still costly and difficult to implement, according to the 485 business technology professionals who responded to the survey. What’s more, they doubt that next generation applications will be any easier to handle. As for the alternatives, most enterprises have yet to fully embrace services-oriented architecture, software as a services or business process management. Oh sure, they’re using these technologies here and there, but few survey respondents are confident that SOA, SaaS or BPM can handle everything.
