How can institutions reduce risk, contain costs, while making long-term Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) investment decisions in mission critical applications? How can institutions remain competitive in the domestic and international student marketplace, while meeting the expectations of faculty, staff and students?

Today there is a proposal underway for an ERP collaborative shared service model for the higher education sector in British Columbia. In this panel discussion, you will learn about the sector-wide ERP strategy recently defined by the ERP working group. They will provide an overview of the proposed strategy recommendations and implementation steps from the working group. They will also share ways the ERP vendor marketplace is changing and what some jurisdictions are doing in the ERP shared service and cloud/SAAS space.
