About this conference

This conference is a forum where industry can discuss with Government what the future may hold for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). It addresses the strategies, critical success factors and experiences with implementing ERP solutions in public sector organizations.

Recent House Appropriation language indicates a desire to halt new systems development, meanwhile DoD has halted new systems pending the results of a study of approaches to Enterprise systems in DoD. OMB has been given oversight for IT projects within the Federal enterprise. Where is ERP in the public sector headed?

Attendees will hear Government and industry executives offer various perspectives on how ERP systems are being implemented within the unique environments of governmental structures and processes.

Since ERP relies heavily on following process models dictated by the applications, considerable time will be spent in assessing the impact this has on government organizations. Can COTS ERP be an effective strategic solution for e-Government, or is its effectiveness limited by the very nature of Government roles, processes and missions?

Presentations will be made on progress to date, successes and obstacles, lessons learned, and the outlook for the future of ERP in the public sector. Sponsorships are available.
