CIO Vendor SAP can successfully integrate all business functions or can sometimes cost to diminish business flow if not implemented effectively. Despite the application encapsulated with capabilities of delivering real-time analysis, not all SAP ERP implementations are notable. Causes behind failure of SAP implementation projects involve insufficient capturing of business requirements, prolonged business decisions, lack of industry expertise of implementation partner, cost pressure, erroneous configuration, unrealistic SAP expectations and less user adoption following reluctance of employees to change with system.
