Have you been involved in an ERP implementation? Was it successful? Our fellow blogger, Houston Neal from
- Big bang - Implementation happens in a single instance. All users move to the new system on a given date.
- Phased rollout - Changeover occurs in phases over an extended period of time. Users move onto new system in a series of steps.
