Modern ERP systems provide powerful analytics and are capable of processing big data from any and all systems. To meet the new expectations of ERP applications, executives and managers are working hard to assure their ERP systems keep up with the new functionality and products coming from Oracle. However, according to a survey of 266 Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) members, who are involved with or knowledgeable about their organization’s budgeting process, building and maintaining these systems is not only a technical challenge, but also an organizational one. The OAUG survey was fielded by Unisphere Research, a division of Information Today, Inc, in partnership with Fujitsu America, Inc.

The majority of survey respondents report that portions of their ERP upgrade budgets come from outside of the IT departments, particularly finance. Since they are often big budget projects, the upgrades are likely to be subject to changing financial conditions at their organizations. Almost a quarter of respondents in fact report that their original ERP upgrade budgets were scaled back over the past year as a result of economic issues. While these projects often take up to a year to complete, two-thirds of respondents report that their projects have been, or are on their way to being, delivered on time and on budget.
